Outdoor Ministries: Camp and Conference Centers
Camps and conference centers have a unique role to play in the protection of, and education about, God’s Creation. Campers and retreatants develop awe as they spend sacred moments communing with God's creation. Out of that awe comes a strong sense of the Christian responsibility of stewardship: to care for the Earth as created by God, and to maintain this blessing for future generations.
