Volunteer & Service Opportunities

As we continue to grow and expand God’s ministry through Camp, it is important to broaden our base of committed supporters. For many years Camp’s Board members have been the financial backbone of insuring that all financial needs were met. These committed individuals used their blessings from God to give sacrificially to the needs of this ministry. They have shouldered the load of cost; not only of operating the camp but also the construction of all the facilities that now exist.  Along with literally thousands of volunteers and donors, Camp of the Hills is no longer just a dream.  It stands ready to introduce the love of Jesus to thousands of young souls in the future. To continue this ministry we must find new ministry partners. Please prayerfully consider investing in what God is doing through Camp of the Hills. Your prayers and your involvement will make the difference in the future of so many children.
