This has been a year unlike any other in our nearly 50 year history! This pandemic has affected every area of our lives. I saw a quote that summarized the situation well – “although we are not in the same boat, we are all in the same storm.” In spite of all the challenges, we have continued to see God’s blessing and His provision repeatedly.

Work crews have made incredible progress on our new Guest Group Lodge this year! This new facility will improve the experience of our existing guests, and will enable us to serve those who have physical disabilities as well.

This new lodge includes a central meeting room, four guest rooms that house up to 12 guests each and bathrooms and showers connected to each room. When you combine that with ADA accessibility, it’s great for families, adults, youth and those with physical challenges. It’s a game changer and will bless our ministry for years to come!
I’m happy to report that through to the generosity of our camp family, we have raised and spent $379,000 to get the building to its current state. The anticipated cost of this first new lodge is $600,000 and includes improvements to infrastructure for future buildings.

Over the next few years we plan to replace every existing cabin with new facilities that are ADA accessible and include bathrooms and showers connected to each room. We have decided not to take on any additional debt so we’re praying that God would meet this need through the friends of Orchard Hill.

In order to complete the next phase of plumbing, electrical and HVAC rough-in, we need to raise $75,000 in additional gifts. This will enable us to bring in volunteers to insulate, install drywall and paint.

Camper Testimonials

I really want to come back this year but we do not have enough money to pay for the full price. I really like the counselors. I’m a lot closer to God. I pray every night and I have 30 minutes devoted to reading my Bible. I hope you really let me come back to camp this year.

I would like to tell you how much I enjoyed staying at Camp Orchard Hill last summer. Words cannot describe how much fun I had and all that I learned. It allowed me to make new friends, become involved in sports and other activities, but also to become closer to God and his teachings. I loved how every morning we went into the prayer hall to listen to spiritual music and learn about Jesus. In all, I had a great time at camp and I hope to attend this year.

Camp was a great experience for these reasons. The week that I spent last summer was unforgettable. I became closer to Christ and I learned so much from his teachings. The speakers that were featured during the week really were an inspiration to me. I also loved the activities that we did. Everything was so fresh and full of energy. And, what a better way to start off a great week of camp then to make new friends. I have met girls at camp that I am still close with today. No one ever feels left out here. Those things are what makes camp the best it can be and the things that I loved.
