“Thanks for a transformational week. Kidder Creek is a little glimpse of heaven. People loving each other and being kind. You’ve made huge fans out of our family. We’ll be back!”
—Robbie,  Week 1 camper

What a year!  We praise God for all the families who joined us by sending their kids to camp, the staff, volunteers and donors who gave time and resources to make it happen but…  Lives Transformed, that’s what it’s all about!  It’s stories like this one that inspire us to keep doing God’s work of loving others and leading them to a full life in Jesus.

Yay God! Yay Friends!  Yay Camp!
