6,466 campers attended 2015 camps.
289 campers made first-time decisions to follow Jesus.
30 churches in 7 states hosted an Eagle Lake On Location day camp.
Eagle Lake On Location was an answer to prayer for two grandparents in the Vail Valley of Colorado. Dick and Marsha purposely relocated to the area so they could spiritually invest in the lives of their granddaughters. They enjoyed having Saturday night sleepovers so the girls could attend church with them on Sundays.
During the Eagle Lake On Location day camp at The Vail Church, Dick and Marsha were elated when they found out their two older granddaughters came to a personal relationship with Jesus!
Heather Bergquist, Children’s Ministry Lead of The Vail Church, shared the excitement for Eagle Lake On Location. “Kids in our community are used to big, exciting activities—they ski down black diamond slopes at a young age. So engaging kids and making Jesus and faith exciting through Eagle Lake On Location was a great fit for our church and community. We had seven children make a faith commitment in 2015.
“We are planning on hosting Eagle Lake On Location again in 2016. The camp opened doors in our community. We were able to build relationships with the principals of our two local elementary schools. They were impressed with the intentionality of scholarships we offered to make broad participation possible, including reaching out to the working poor in our community.”
