Due to current events, we have decided to make a few changes to our advertised summer program this year:

    • Flexible payment plans and scholarships for those under economic stress

    • Complete refund of all payments if we are required to cancel summer camps

We are working to provide camp experiences that honor the recommendations of the Berrien County Health Department, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and proper governing authorities. Respecting the guidelines provided, we are committed to providing a safe camp where children will participate with peers and make decisions that are rich in spiritual and emotional growth.


The Lord is not surprised by our current social circumstances. I encourage you to “...pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people (Ephesians 6:18).”


King Asa was fully committed to the Lord all his life (1 Kings 15:14), but when afflicted with a disease in his feet, did not seek help from the Lord (2 Chronicles 16:12). Let's remember to seek the Lord while heeding the advice of the health professionals God has blessed us with.

Many of us have watched the capabilities of our health system grow exponentially during our lifetimes. Human capacity to cure disease and relieve symptoms is truly amazing. I am grateful for the knowledge and abilities of our healthcare providers. Their willingness to serve at the expense of their personal health security is worthy of admiration and honor. Even more, I encourage you to receive their guidance while knowing that our Lord is healer. Let's seek Him and glorify Him, remembering that the resurrection of Christ provides our hope for eternity with Him. Praise the Lord!
