It’s been a couple weeks since our final Man Camp work day of this year. We are so thankful for the men who volunteered their time and energy to help make Miracle Camp an even better place.
New Hiking Trails: One of the biggest projects that the men worked on was creating hiking trails on the new land that was purchased a couple years ago. The men spent hours clearing brush, sticks, and thorns to make wide trails that our guests are now able to enjoy!
Cleared Area for Paintball Course: In addition to clearing lots of trails, some of the men took on the task of clearing a large area as the new location for our paintball course. This new area will provide a larger, more enjoyable space for our paintball games.
Whitewashed Walls in Game Room: Our game room now has a brighter feel! We hope this improvement will continue to support the smiles and laughter of our guests who enjoy this space.
As always, we are so grateful for the help we receive from our faithful guests and supporters. Miracle Camp wouldn’t be the place it is without your generosity and contributions and we thank you for supporting us in creating a place where the gospel can be preached to more and more people every year.

For over fifty years now, Miracle Camp has existed to facilitate life change by helping people draw closer to God. While the year-round events we facilitate for our guests are designed with this in mind, Internships also provide a meaningful avenue for us to facilitate life change for transitioning students. Interning with us provides opportunities for personal growth while serving alongside our full time staff in a specific area of interest.
Knowing how to choose a career path without the benefit of much work experience can be a challenge even for the most prepared students. While schooling can enlighten us with new ideas, the classroom doesn’t often provide opportunities for practical application. An internship, on the other hand, provides specific opportunities to gain valuable experience in a field before committing to a future course.
Your vocation represents the biggest time commitment in life, and the place we have the most opportunity for relationship with others. For our interns, this means we equally value the work that happens behind-the-scenes and on the stage; no matter what type of career path you are preparing to take, our program will give you the tools to see your workplace as a mission field for you to creatively pursue your God-given purpose.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts “the demand for head chefs, cooks and other culinary specialists is on the rise. The agency has gathered the numbers and determined that the field will grow by an estimated 9 percent between 2014 and 2024.” Here at Miracle Camp, Chef Beau Graf has been faithfully serving our guests since 2014. As a trained chef with over 16 years of experience in commercial kitchens and working with vendors, Beau is excited to share his knowledge and help prepare interns with skills for ministry in culinary arts.
Applicants for the Culinary Arts Internship will be eager to learn basic cooking principles, knife technique, baking and grilling, as well as more restaurant management skills like ordering, inventory and production planning. In addition to team-based training and individual career coaching, the Culinary Arts intern will receive ServSafe Certification and attend the CCCA Cooks Advance Retreat.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2018 Culinary Arts Internship, in addition to accepting 2019 applications for our other areas of emphasis. For more information, click on the button below!
In all of our retreats, we are continually trying to find the balance of providing new and unique activities for our guests while also continuing to implement the things that people love and look forward to every year. We love seeing guests come back to a retreat year after year, so we are always looking for the best ways to serve them and help them enjoy their time. From adding new activities to our Man Camps, Women’s Retreats, and Parent/Child Retreats to completely changing the look and schedule of Summer Camp, we always want to keep improving the things we do while also sticking to the things that make Miracle Camp the place it is.
We hope that by adding new activities like archery battle, treasure hunts, and trivia, we can appeal to more and more people and bring them to a place where they will hear the message of Jesus preached. As we said before, our greatest desire is to facilitate life change by helping people grow closer to God and to glorify Jesus. Every part of our mission, from affordable quality to church partnerships, plays into this goal. We want the Good News of Christ Jesus to be heard, and Miracle Camp will be a place where that happens.
