Greetings from Camp Sentinel!
There is a certain sweetness to the promise in Lamentations 3:22-24, ²²Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. ²³They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ²⁴I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." Did you hear that? God's compassions never fail. They are new every morning! Great is thy Faithfulness oh Lord! I take comfort in these verses as we look forward to the summer with anticipation that God's great love and compassions never fail! As we look to the future, we take comfort in WHO holds our future; the Lord, maker of heaven and earth! Here are some updates from the mountainside.

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.
