Who is the Camp Staff?
Camp His Way is an interdenominational, Christ-centered camp program. The
Camp offers a place to retreat from the everyday pressures of life - to unwind,
regroup and refuel. The main purpose of the Camp is to provide a camp experience
for children through the summer. Our goal is to offer a program that will
develop a child physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.
Our desire is to see children come to know the Lord in a very special way. We
desire that they develop a relationship with Christ that will be a life changing
experience. Our prayer is that God will touch each and every child's life in
such a way that they will leave Camp on fire for the Lord. Our mission will be
to invest in the lives of these children, valuable Biblical principles that will
develop them into Christian leaders.
