Chapel Roofed in One Day at Men’s Retreat!

The day before men’s retreat here at Miracle Camp more than 60 men helped us with many work projects.  One of those projects was roofing the chapel entirely in one day!  That’s 94 square of shingles in an entire day!  The men did great work and saved Miracle Camp more than $10,000 in labor costs!  Thanks to all these men for donating their time and skills!  What a great accomplishment!

Man Camp sets records, changes lives

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

Our annual Man Camp was this past weekend and saw more than 280 men attend the retreat.  This was the most in the history of Miracle Camp.  More than 10 men accepted Christ for the first time!

Nearly 70 men showed up early to spend time on work projects.  On Friday before the retreat they installed new path lights, set block, did landscaping, fixed retaining walls, cleaned the grounds, and much more.  A group of guys from Metamore installed new theatrical lighting and new lighting controls in the chapel.  A picture of the effects of that are shown below.  Thanks to all the men who made this retreat a great time!

If you missed Man Camp this past weekend, you missed out!  This is quite possibly the manliest weekend you have ever experienced.

The weekend included a Miracle Man competition with a Scottish caber toss, paintball, zip line, trap shooting, and much more.  The highlight was our 30 foot long grill in which every man hand selected and grilled their own steak!

Don’t miss out on this awesome retreat next year.

Men’s Retreat is Largest in MC History!

Our men’s retreat is under way!  This year we have 150 men to mark the biggest retreat in Miracle Camp history!  Guest speaker Matt Boyers spoke about becoming men of integrity and purity and todays society. We are already looking forward to this retreat next year!

A special thanks to the men who came up early to help us “raise a barn” and put an addition on our shop.  More than 40 men helped out around camp with various work projects including expanding the workshop.
