2022 Theme:
Christ has overcome

Looking at the news headlines and the circumstances we face, it is easy to feel discouraged and lose perspective in our weariness. Yet during another tumultuous time, as Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice drew near, He spoke hope to His followers, “I am not alone because the Father is with me. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:32-33

In this truth, we are especially eager to encourage families to live with hope and peace. Despite each crisis surrounding us, Christ has and will continue to carry the victory!


Renew relationships and create lasting memories.


Biblical encouragement in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Meet like-minded families and create lasting friendships.

very blessed

“This was our first time to camp as a family. We were very blessed to have a Christian campground to come to where there are so many Christian families to meet. The experience as a whole was a blessing! I wanted to do all the activities, but of course could not do all in one week. It was very well organized and the workers were all so kind.” — Jodie


“Incredible time to bond with my family; great messages that bring practical value. Thank you for making this camp so much fun and entertaining.” — Inna

worth every penny

“It is worth every penny spent and every mile driven to bring your entire family to a place that they can safely fellowship with other believers, while being encouraged in our walk with the Lord! There’s fun activities to do as family while getting to know other sweet families! We all can’t wait to come back next year!” — Jonathan

heaven on earth

“This year our family went through two major surgeries just weeks before camp and even though camp was an additional expense this place like heaven on earth was something we needed to forget the stress the worries and as a family to rejuvenate. It was great encouragement for us, and the messages were a great wake up call.” Laris, Texas

more than a vacation
