Damage Updates

As we go through the process of getting the camp back into shape after the recent storm, we want to keep you all informed of the progress. At this point the Dining Hall is our priority. The tree was removed from the roof on Thursday, and the hole is being temporarily covered in anticipation of the next storm this weekend. We are working hard to minimize the impact of the repairs on our upcoming guest groups in December and January. Praise God we have insurance on these buildings, but we will need funds for things not covered by the insurance (we will have more information on these needs soon). The fire damage to Hilltop #2 was extensive enough that the cabin will need to be completely rebuilt, our goal is to have it completed before summer. We have put together a short PowerPoint slide presentation for any churches who would like to share more information with their congregations. If you are interested in getting a copy of this presentation, please contact our Associate Director at

Prayer Requests

* Please pray that the decisions of our insurance company are positive, and allow us to complete the work needed.

* Please pray for wisdom for our staff as we continue to strive to meet our guests needs.

* Please pray for wisdom to see the opportunities in God's plan.


* No one was hurt in the storm and clean-up process, pray that there are no injuries as we continue.

* The staff homes sustained no damage in the storm

* Power was restored to the camp after 67 hours (3.5 days). (A cheer was heard around the camp)

* The responses we have received from churches, other camps, and friends of the camp, have been very positive. It is amazing the way God's children work together in crisis.

Thank you for your prayers. We will keep you updated when we know more.
