GLEN LAKE CAMP AND RETREAT CENTER

strives to create a Christian 

environment where authentic relationships are formed. Our Mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

As a non-profit camping ministry, we have an ongoing need for capital improvements, upkeep and maintenance for our multitude of camps, retreats and other programs. We also offer financial aid to individuals and families in need so they can attend camp.
