We are thankful for... Fresh Flooring! Due to unusually high amounts of rainfall this summer, we experienced some flooding in various parts of the camp. The main area that was damaged by the flooding was the Daisy basement where we house sponsors. The carpet had been cleaned up from flooding multiple times in the past, but this time, it really just needed to be replaced. Although the flooding may not have been pleasant to deal with, something good came out of it because the fresh flooring and carpet in the basement is a big - and much-needed - upgrade. We also were able to install carpet in the Nurse's Station recently which really helps to spruce up the appearance of that space and allows us to convert it to a comfortable housing area for guests during times of the year when it's not needed as the Nurse's Station. ...

Over the next couple weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, we'll be sharing a number of posts about some blessings we're thanking the Lord for this year. --- We are thankful for... A great summer staff! Each year, it is exciting to see how God brings together a specific set of people to work at AGBC. They come from nearby and far away to work as counselors, cooks, cleaners, lifeguards, maintenance workers, and more. Some have worked at camp multiple summers in the past, some are former campers, and some are totally new to AGBC. We are thankful for the terrific team God brought together for 2019, and we are praying that he will bless us with the right staff members for next summer. If you are interested in spending summer 2020 as a camp worker, you can visit our website to read through staff FAQs and fill out an application. ... See more
#tbt to our Community Initiative camp weeks this past summer. We are looking forward to continuing this program for its 4th summer in 2020! We have seen many kids from our community accept Christ as their Savior during these special weeks of camp the past 3 summers, and that's what it's all about! We are able to offer a free week of camp to local kids only because of generous individuals and businesses who give financially to our Community Initiative program. If you are thinking of making some cash donations before the end of the year, please consider giving to AGBC to sponsor a camper for Community Initiative 2020! If you have questions, please feel free to contact the camp office. ... See more
