Record Attendance at Summer Camp This Year

By | Summer Camp | No Comments

This past week Miracle Camp and Retreat Center registered campers that broke the previous record for total number of campers in a summer.  The previous mark of 1,409 was set in 2002.  This year’s total numbers will be 1,416.  While camp isn’t all about numbers, it has been encouraging to see the growth over the past three years.  In 2005 there were 1,047 campers, in 2006 there were 1,143, and in 2007 there were 1,229.  That is a 35% increase over 3 years.

More than the number of kids exposed to Miracle Camp, we are excited to see the changed lives.  This year there has been more than 100 decisions to follow Christ and many more who have grown deeper in their personal relationship with Him.

Thanks for your support in making this a great summer!

Senior High Camp Largest Ever!

By | Summer Camp, Video | No Comments

Our senior high camp was the largest camp ever here at MC and one of the best! We took a trip to the Warren Dunes, had a midnight party, had fight night, and even had guests all the way from Europe! Check out the senior high video on youtube and be sure to come next year! It’s really the best week of your life.

New Ski Boat Needed

hydrodyne

This past week, the hull of our Hydrodyne Ski boat ripped apart and the boat partially sank, flooding the engine with water and leaving it totalled.  We were unable to take campers tubing and waterskiing for the rest of that week as a result.  We have found a boat as a replacement to get us through the summer, but are still looking for another boat to provide redundancy in case of mechanical failure and to allow us to take multiple groups of campers tubing at a time.

We are looking for a reliable, inboard ski boat that we could use on a daily basis in the summer.  If you or anyone you know could donate a boat to the ministry, we would greatly appreciate it.
