Keeping Faith Campaign – Evergreen Project

The Evergreen Project is the newest development in the Keeping Faith Campaign. As part of our sustainability initiative, this project helps us meet the needs of the groups we are currently turning away. For these churches and groups, there is a need for a chapel like meeting space, that is similar to our current chapel, where they can gather and hold their own services.

Evergreen (the old Bunkhouse) is a cabin that needs renovating and has the available space for this addition. It’s construction will give us the needed secondary meeting space, and allow us to serve multiple large groups at the same time. By renovating this building and adding on this new meeting space, we will now be able to accommodate an additional:

  • 10 guest groups (at least) ­per year
  • Ice Camp beds ­– 32 beds per weekend for 9 weekends
  • Man Camp beds ­ — 32 beds per weekend for 4 weekends
  • Women’s Retreat beds ­ — 32 per weekend for 2 weekends
  • Summer Camp ­– 20 beds per week for 9 weeks
  • Marriage Retreat ­ — 8 beds per weekend for 2 weekends

The resources from this project will provide camp with a new revenue stream and put us on a financial path that prepares Miracle Camp for the next 50 years of ministry. In addition, this project will allow us to have our expenses equal our fees which will allow us to utilize donations to better the guest experience and better maintain our facilities.
