Greetings from Camp Challenge!  This past year was a very good year as we started to recover from the impact covid had on our operations.  We are so much looking forward to 2022 and returning to pre-pandemic camper numbers and facility usage.  In 2021 we had 446 campers and we are thankful.  We also compare that number to 2019 when we had 564 campers.  We have some work to do in order to get back to that number.

The big addition to the camp in 2021 was the outdoor worship center.  It is a simple 60’ X 100’ building but the impact it had on the 2021 camping season was huge.  The outdoor worship center gave us a space to be outside in an uncrowded area and the view from the worship center is amazing.  The outdoor worship center will be a great space for worship and other activities for years to come.

I would also like to let you know about some challenges we are facing.  Because camper numbers are down our registration revenue is also down.  Our facility rental revenue has not returned to 2019 levels either.  Those two things are having a big impact on our operating revenue.  At the same time, we are feeling the effects of increased prices on just about everything we purchase.  Food prices, building material prices, and especially utility prices are all having an impact on our outflow of money.  What we really need are individuals and families that agree that Camp Challenge is a great place to experience God through His creation.  We need those that have experienced growth and have met Jesus at Camp Challenge.  If you consider yourself included in one of those categories I would ask you to financially support the camp on a monthly basis.  We have a “fire circle” opportunity where individuals and families can sign up to donate monthly to the camp.  Your donation of $25, $50, $100, or really any amount, makes a difference to Camp Challenge.  Please go to to start giving monthly today!
