Joy Reigned Supreme at Summer Camp!

August 15, 2016

Dear Friend/s of LaMoine Christian Service Camp,

Thank you for your financial gift toward the ministry of providing a Christian camping environment where youth can be challenged to love and serve Jesus Christ. The outcomes for the campers from our programs are numerous; social skills development, increased self-respect and respect for others, character development, growth in community living and service skills, as well as our primary focus of individual spiritual growth.

It is with mixed feelings that I am writing this August letter because the summer camp season is almost over. Yes, I am glad that the stresses of a summer camp season are coming to an end, but I am also sad that the joys and blessings I witness and experience all summer long will soon be ending as well. I can report that we will end the season with about 1,100 campers (the most we’ve had in several years) and many, many decisions to accept Christ, rededicate their lives, and refocus on a more faithful walk with Jesus. Seeds were planted and watered, and a harvest was reaped as well. God was glorified and His children were blessed. All in all, Joy reigned supreme, and the Spirit of God inhabited this special place. I will be able to give more complete numbers next month.

A heartfelt “Thank You” for being a big part of helping make this summer camp season possible. Immediately following our summer camping season we will go into demolition and construction mode. Check out the dates below and contact Jon at 217-654-2238 or if you have any questions regarding volunteer opportunities.

Serving Our Savior Together,


Doug Hamer/Director
