“Camp always makes me feel closer to God. You can be whoever you want to be and no one’s going to judge you.”

“I love camp since it has supported me through the bad times and celebrated with me in the good times. It has allowed me to make new friends and reunite with old friends.”

“I go to camp because after my first year going it held a special place in my heart. You all come as strangers but sooner than you could ever imagine it becomes another family. I’m able to be who I really am, not some image of what people believe I am. I can come with whatever problems are occurring and let them go and feel amazing. And with all the amazing memories and friends I’ve made through this experience I feel truly blessed.”

“Outdoor Ministries has been, more than any other facet of the church, the cornerstone and foundation of my faith since my first year of Junior Camp in 1989. 23 years later, I’m still connected to my faith through the DOC church camp programs. As a camper, I formed life-long friendships, and as a counselor I have had the change to come full circle and help build relationships with the campers, the same way that the adults did when I was a camper. That feeling, growth, and rewards has never been replicated by any other experience.”

“Camp gives you the opportunity to meet new friends and grow in your walk with God.”

Camp makes a lasting impression!

Each year, generations of campers and volunteers gather at locations across the Northern Lights Region to engage their faith, relax in the safety of a judgement-free zone, and watch in wonder as everyone gives and receives the good news message of Christ.  These testimonials are just a taste of what camp means to our participants and the volunteers who give so graciously of their time to lead the camper.

Watch for 2020 Summer Camp details to begin appearing in early 2020.

Until then, thanks again for a great 2019 season and enjoy a few memories of the summer caught on camera!
