This past summer a young camper arrived at check out without his backpack. His mother questioned where it was, and the boy shrugged, and he said, “I don’t know”. Embarrassed, I asked the camp counselor to go and find it and apologized to the mother. The young boy quickly spoke up and he said, “It’s all my fault”. “Why is it your fault?” I said. “Because I hid it.” "Why did you hide it?" The boy said, “cause I want to stay.”
I feel like this in the stillness of the outdoors, I want to stay. I enjoy seeing campers make new friends, try new activities, enjoy time around Bible study with inspiring words from the Camp Pastor and staff mentors. Camp helps create an atmosphere of worship through the study of God’s Word together. I feel thankful. This sweet melody of camp helps to create harmony in life.

2022 theme video
Each of us plays an important role as followers of God - as Christians our role is to engage with God and our neighbors. We do this by being prepared to share the reason for the hope we have in God. In 2022, we will equip ourselves to speak the truth in love with gentleness and respect. Reserve your space today with a $100 deposit.

Support for camp
Please consider helping us finish the year strong. As we continue ministry this season and beyond, we are raising support for two areas. First, Sentinel is MISSION FIRST as we never turn a family away for the inability to pay for camp. Donations are needed to help with scholarship support. Secondly, we are raising funds for new projects: a playground next to the Hobby house and a new bathroom next to the Wigwam.
