We are so thankful to the Lord for providing our workers this summer! Over 50 people helped with Helping Hands Family Camp where 12 churches were represented! We were able to make improvements on the property and buildings which made camping for the youth much more enjoyable. Many individuals stepped up and donated items and funds. We also had several businesses donate items, services, and funds to the camp. Among those were:

B&B Plumbing                                             Rifle City Market                               H & K Trucking

Mountain Pest Control                                Flat Tops Fencing        Advanced Automotive & Truck Repair

Churches represented were:

Rocky Mountain Baptist                             Crown Peak Baptist                         Cowboy Church

Fellowship of the Rockies                          Palisade Nazarene                          Loma Community

River of Life Alliance                                   The Journey-Craig                          Rifle Assembly

Faith Baptist - Parachute            Mountain View Bible Fellowship - Estes Park   Church on the Rock                                   

It was wonderful to see God's people and businesses from  the surrounding community come together to help provide a great local place for youth and their families to enjoy the outdoors and worship the Lord together! If we did not mention your church or business, please let us know. This year was truly a year when we felt the support and love of our community and the surrounding communities!


Our workers this summer were terrific! We had wonderful counselors, Bible teachers, cooks, missionaries, C.I.T.'s, craft leaders, recreation leaders, and medical personnel. Two of our workers came early to help with the weed eating and mowing, and several staff stayed after our first camp was over to help make sure everything was ready for the subsequent camps!  Many of our workers were between the ages of 15 and 21. Watching them give their lives in service for NO PAY was amazing!  Because of the dedication of these workers, over 25 youth made decisions for Christ this year! Praise God!


We will be hosting a work day on September 21st from 10a.m. to 5 p.m. Lunch will be served. Our biggest projects during this day will be to take down all 13 tepees and stain/water seal the decks. See the website for more projects that could be done anytime between now and this work day.
