Our Story

What once was a dream, is now a reality! Camp Northfield is now embarking on a new staff building project! We are currently in need of some additional help around camp, but first, we need a place for them to stay! Read the full details from our GoFundMe Page below.

 

Why this project?

From its inception in 1961, Camp Northfield has been operated by a number of executive directors as well as board of directors. Many times, these directors overlapped, or even at times worked together. There was always a dream that Camp Northfield might be operated by more than one family. With this project, this dream will finally become a reality! We will have the opportunity to house more than one family. In one house, the director and his family will reside, and in the other, a group of student interns will take up residence. This will allow Camp Northfield to increase productivity as well as make a greater impact in this ministry and region! 

The work at Camp Northfield never ceases, but only ever increases. It has 15 buildings and around 50 acres to maintain, camp has over 30 supporting churches to keep in contact, we organize many rental and retreat groups, and we must prepare for 8 weeks of summer camp! That is a a lot for one person to balance! That is why we are making a push to bring on more staff. With director and his family, along with the help of interns and volunteers, Camp Northfield will reach more children and families with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ! Let's make it happen!

Cash needed to begin!

out of $60,000

Planning

Three contractors came to camp with a burden to do something for the Lord. They left with a passion to build a house for the director and his family, so that Camp Northfield can begin an internship program

Fundraising

The total amount needed to raise is $165,000. Whether it is a cash donation, or a donation of labor or services, this is what is needed to complete the home.

Acting

Once we have $60,000 in cash, we will begin! Our contractors are confident that with this amount, the site work can be done, the foundation can be poured, the framing will go up, and a roof installed overhead.
