The primary purpose of Camp Emmanuel is: a) to strengthen the campers in their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; b) to increase their knowledge of His word, the Bible; c) to encourage them to live faithfully for Jesus Christ -- by the leaders, counselors and other campers.
Camp Emmanuel is a ministry of faith supported by those who believe in its purpose. Because of donations, campers attend AT NO FINANCIAL CHARGE! Each evening a free-will offering is accepted from the campers. Donations are also cheerfully and thankfully accepted from interested parents, friends and churches.
Camp Emmanuel accepts campers from the Participating Churches. These Participating Churches are listed below. The Pastor of the church must certify the camper is actively involved in their church or is coming as a guest.
The campers MUST meet the following requirements: 1) have attended church at least 6 of the 8 Sundays preceding camp; 2) know and recite the Roman's Road – topic title, verse “address,” and the words of the verse; 3) complete and deliver the registration form to the Pastor on or before July 1.
ALL monies brought to Camp Emmanuel MUST BE placed in the camp bank. This is to safeguarding the camper's monies. The bank opens daily at store times and before the evening service. HOW MUCH? $5 to $20 for treats. $10 for a Camp Emmanuel t-shirt. $20 - $30 is plenty! Plus any money they want to give as an offering. The remaining balance is refunded before the camper returns home.
