Letter from Our Director

By December 13, 2010Life at Camp

At Miracle Camp and Retreat Center we have many reasons to be thankful.  Foremost, is the fact that God continues to bless our efforts to provide a camp and retreat program that honors Him and helps the Church.  We are thankful for you, every family, and every church that makes a choice to actively participate in the Miracle Camp ministry.  Your attendance at retreats, financial support and volunteer efforts are truly what sustain us and the camps that happen each summer, winter, spring, and fall.

Miracle Camp continues to successfully accomplish the vitally important mission of creating opportunities for people to draw close to God in a retreat environment.  It is said, “Miracle Camp is a place where lives are changed.”  This truth is often testified to by people of all ages who find that this is the special place and facility God chooses to speak into their hearts.

Critical to continuing success is our ability to offer quality Christian camp and retreat opportunities that are affordable for a wide array of families.  As costs and fees continue to rise families find it more difficult to afford coming to camp.  The staff and volunteers work very hard at being good stewards of the available resources and make every effort to keep expenses as low as possible.

In addition to this effort we need your help.  Participation fees cover most but not all of the operating budget.  To close the gap we depend on the generous support of Miracle Camp friends.  The contributions budget for this year is $110,000.  Many families have already contributed to this effort in a variety of ways.  Every gift is important and appreciated. We always recognize and acknowledge that every family has different stewardship responsibilities and capacities. Our request is simply that every family would understand the need and respond as they are able.

Please visit our donation page at www.miraclecamp.com/support to prayerfully consider your participation.  Please join us in praying for the ministry and asking God to direct every effort that we make.

We all have much to be thankful for, but nothing more precious that the gift of the Christ child.  Please accept my personal best wishes for a Christmas celebration filled with quiet joy and comforting peace.

Sincerely,

Dale Boone, Executive Director
