2020 Walk in Confidence
Words like “be not afraid” and “fear not” occur over 300 times in the Bible. There are many things to distract us in life, causing fear in our lives. When we come face to face with fear, trusting God’s presence, promises, provision and power, we are then able to walk in confidence.
For over 70 years Sentinel has been providing a summer Christian community for youth to build self-esteem, have meaningful connections, develop character, become strong leaders and to discover and explore creativity through the guidance of well-trained staff. We believe that camp is an opportunity for everyone, and we are excited to see you and your family this year! Daily activities include swimming, boating, arts & crafts, team-building games, ropes course with zip line, rock wall, archery, hiking, large group team sports, and many other great adventures. Each evening the entire camp gathers for Vespers which is a time of worship, singing and Bible study. On Friday evenings we gather at a special “red carpet celebration” banquet where campers dress up for a special dinner to reflect and celebrate the week.

We ask for your continued prayers and missions support to help children attend camp and help with the ministry. The support of our friends and churches is important to the work we do together. We learned in December the Lodge septic system will need to be replaced and we are reaching out for support. The cost of the project is $78,000. Please consider a gift of support to help us with this important immediate need. All gifts are tax deductible.
We believe through ministry partnership; Relationships are Built, and Lives are Changed. Thank you for standing with us in ministry! We love to share the story, contact us to visit your church a Sunday morning.
See you on the mountaintop!
