Carol Norwig was the beloved cook at Camp Orchard Hill for 15 years.  Little did she know that this would become far more than a job; it became her ministry. Carol touched countless lives at Camp Orchard Hill and left a legacy that has spread far and wide. 

Carol was a woman who instantly made you feel at home and always saw the good in people. She sought to encourage others and was a sincere listener. Carol loved the Lord and was the type of person who always put others first. She leaves a great void in the lives of many, and while they are sad, her loved ones are rejoicing that she is suffering no longer and is in the presence of Jesus.

Great News!  After countless hours of preparing plans, revising those plans and work by our design team, we have received plan approval for the first new Guest Group Lodge.  Praise the Lord!  This new facility will not only improve the experience for our existing guests but will enable us to serve those who have physical disabilities as well.  This new lodge includes a central meeting room, four bunk rooms and ADA accessible bathrooms and showers with each room.  It’s a game changer!

And, I’m happy to report that we have raised over $300,000 in gifts and pledges towards this project.  The anticipated cost of this first new lodge is $500,000 with 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 with 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.

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.
