Women’s Retreat is almost ONE MONTH AWAY!

By | Women's Retreat | No Comments


We are anxiously awaiting the coming of spring and the warmer weather that comes with it. With April quickly approaching, we are also so excited for the Women’s Retreat season to kick off! We are looking forward to having hundreds of women here at camp during these two weekends. Here are some of the things we have planned for these weekends:

Craft Workshops: We have another great list of craft workshops available for guests during Women’s Retreat. Here are the craft workshops we will have this year:

Leather Earrings ($5 for one set or $10 for 3 sets)
Face Masks ($5)
Succulent Terrarium ($10)
– Wooden Picture Display ($10)

Chapel Sessions: As always, our focus during all of our retreats is sharing the Gospel and helping our guests grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Our speakers this year are Robyn Dykstra and Challis Bower for Women’s Retreat 1 and 2, respectively. We are so excited to have these women share the Word of God with us and teach us how to live for Him each and every day. We are also excited to have Alicia Fowler to lead the women for both weekends.

Outdoor Activities: A highlight of every Women’s Retreat is the outdoor activities we offer. This year we are bringing back a lot of your favorites for you to enjoy, including our zipline, high ropes, archery, coffee shop, pontoon rides, and even trap shoot! For a complete list of the activities we offer, and a look at a sample schedule, click here and select the “Schedule and Activities” tab.

Dessert Room: One of our favorite parts of Women’s Retreat is the incredible food. We are excited for the great meals we will have, as well as the infamous dessert room we have every year. Our dessert room is a great place for you to hang out, catch up with friends you came with, and enjoy your choice from many different dessert options.

Man Camp Starts TODAY!

By | Men's Retreat (Man Camp) | No Comments

Today marks the beginning of our 2018 Man Camp Season! We are pumped for the hundreds of men to be here and enjoy a great weekend together.

This weekend we will have just over 100 men attend our first Man Camp. With March Madness just starting, we are looking forward to lots of basketball, incredible food, and watching our favorite teams play. The weather this weekend is also looking great so we hope to make good use of our zipline, high ropes, trap shooting range, and our huge man grill.

The thing we are looking forward to the most, though, is hearing the Good News of Jesus preached. We would love to have you join us in prayer for this weekend and that God will work in the hearts of these men.

The Generator is Up and Running!

By | Life at Camp | No Comments

Last year, as part of the Keeping Faith Campaign, we were able to purchase a generator that will power the Chapel, Evergreen, and the Lodge (including the Dining Hall) in case of a power outage. We are excited to share with you that this generator is now completely hooked up and up and running!

We want to say THANK YOU for all of your support towards the Keeping Faith campaign. The generator is a huge addition to camp because, not only will it keep lights on when the power goes out, but it will also eliminate any potential distractions during power outages during chapel sessions and while guests are on campus. One of the most important roles the generator will play, though, is supplying power to our dining hall and the large refrigerators and freezers we have on campus. On any given weekend, we could have thousands of dollars worth of food in our kitchen. With the generator, we now won’t have to worry about having to throw out food due to the power being out.

We appreciate your support in helping us continue to improve Camp’s resources. We are very excited with what the future of Miracle Camp looks like and would love to have you partner with us in our mission to glorify God and share the Good News of Jesus with more and more people every year.

Check Out the Topics for this Year’s Man Camps!!

By | Men's Retreat (Man Camp) | No Comments

Our first Man Camp will be here in just two weeks!! We are looking forward to four incredible weekends, with hundreds of men, and seeing how God works in their lives. Here are the topics our speakers for the year will be teaching on:

Man Camp 1 – Dan Busse

Dan will be focusing on raising the bar on our faith, expectations, and outcome in life. He will be asking the question, “We are living, but have we found life?” In Dan’s first talk, on Friday night, the topic will be “What Matters Most?”. He will be diving into Luke 6 to look at three key questions to help us discover God’s plan. Saturday morning’s topic, “Who Am I?”, will look at our identity and what God has for us through passages in Ephesians. The third message, titled “Fear to Focus”, will come from John 5 and will challenge us to shift our focus and think about how fear keeps us from embracing the life God has for us. Our final session, on Sunday morning, will be centered around Colossians 3 and 4 to look at legacy and the need for community.

Man Camp 2 – Rich Ratts

Rich Ratts will be focusing on the theme of Acting Like Men. The sessions for this weekend will be centered around a couple key verses: 1 Corinthians 16:13 (“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.”), Nehemiah 4:14 (“After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, ‘Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.’”), and Luke 2:52 (“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men”). Each message will encourage guys to “act like men” according to the four domains mentioned in the life and growth of Jesus as recorded in the passage from Luke. Session one will focus on growing in wisdom (intellect), session two on growing in stature (physicality), session three on growing in favor with God (spirituality), and the final session on growing in favor with men (relationally).

Man Camp 3 – Tom Harmon

For our third Man Camp, Tom Harmon is back as our speaker! The chapel sessions will be centered around the book of Daniel. In the first session, Tom will talk about “Daniel’s Moment in Time” by looking at the first couple verses of the first chapter. Saturday morning will focus on “The Making of a Man” through Daniel 1:3-9. That evening, we will dive into Daniel 2:44-45 to take a closer look at Daniel’s message. In our final session, Tom’s topic will be “The Making of a Prophet” based out of Daniel 6.

Man Camp 4 – Nate Hamblin

Nate’s main theme for this weekend is Man Prayers: Exploring simple, gospel-centered prayers that invite Christ to form and shape His life in our everyday lives. Nate will kick off the weekend in Luke 1:26-38 by looking at what God desires to do IN & THROUGH us. The next morning’s session will look at 1 Kings 3:1-15. In this message, Nate will talk about our desperate need for the wisdom of Christ to rule in our hearts. On Saturday night, Nate will look at Mark 9:14-29 and about how we are all equal in our need for Christ’s grace to daily overcome our unbelief. The last session will be based on the passage from 2 Kings 6:8-23, centered on praying that the Lord will open our eyes that we may see.
