Our desire is to gather an outstanding group of dedicated staff who love the Lord with all their heart and have a passion to share that love with kids. Our mission is to not only impact the lives of at-risk children, but help our staff grow in their relationship with God, develop character, and become life-giving leaders.

2013 Camp Dates:
NEW 2013 Theme!!
Jesus said, "I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE." Jesus taught us to pray, "Thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." I believe that Jesus' teaching and life were a demonstration of what living the Kingdom Way meant. This summer we will learn how to apply Kingdom Principles to our daily lives.
Basic Camp Schedule
Support the Ministry
You will need to help support the ministry, and there are three options to do this:
A. Donate $100 per week of service towards your meals & lodging. You can write a check to CDO, or donate online. You may even consider doing a fundraiser, or doing extra work just as if you were earning money for a mission trip.
B.Raise support- send out missionary support letters to raise prayer and financial support for your time of service, with a goal of raising $100 per week of service. If you choose this option, you will need to send us an address list of 20 –30 names and addresses of people who you intend to send your support letter to; and understand that the amount of support that you raise from your letters does not affect whether or not you can be on our team. Please email your list to us by May 27th, and then during Staff Training we will provide the paper and postage, coach you in writing your letter, and the office will mail it.
C. Find 2 new people to sponsor a camper for each week you serve (before your time of service). You will be making it possible for the kids to come to camp! Be sure to ask the new sponsors to mark on their sponsor form that they are sponsoring a child on your behalf.
Share Your Testimony
We need some staff members each week during camp to share their testimony (story) of God working in their life. Hearing from each other will really encourage the campers and fellow staff in trusting God more. Please begin praying about what God would have you share, and bring your testimony form to the Staff Training.
Please inform the nurse if you are on any medication and keep the medicine in the nurse’s station and be responsible for taking it. The nurse will not hunt you down to give you your meds!
