When you give to Forest Home, you are making an eternal impact by advancing the Gospel through the power of camp ministry.


In our 85+ years of ministry, one thing is clear – God uses camp to change lives. Maybe it’s inner city kids exploring the mountains for the first time, or families learning to cling to the Lord through challenging times, or a teenager hearing the Gospel for the first time – camp matters.

Financial gifts from our ministry partners help provide a transformational mountaintop experience. When you give to Forest Home, you are making an Eternal Impact by advancing the Gospel through the power of camp ministry.



“One of the reasons I continue to work is to invest more in the Kingdom through ministries like Forest Home. Forest Home has had such a powerful impact on our family. I can’t imagine a more powerful ministry to students and families. Forest Home’s founder, Henrietta Mears, would often state that a week at camp will accomplish spiritually in a student’s life what it takes years to do otherwise.” I’ve seen this first-hand and it’s why I continue to invest in camp ministry.”

More than 40,000 children, youth and families are reached with the Gospel every year at Forest Home.

100’s of campers will make first-time decisions to follow Jesus Christ every year.

1,000’s of campers will make other life-changing decisions that will impact their walk with Christ every year.

On average, Forest Home awards $250,000 a year
in camp scholarships

Henrietta Mears, our founder, shared at our 25th anniversary, that “Forest Home was founded and instituted for one reason alone and that was that men and women, boys and girls should be introduced to the Lord Jesus Christ and find the place that He wants for them in this world. It hasn’t ever had any other reason for existence.” We are still committed to what the Lord called Forest Home to do.

The work is not done and it’s critical we finish the vision God has given to secure Forest Home in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ for generations to come. We believe millions will place their faith in Him on these grounds in these coming generations, and we must re-establish our outdated facilities to accomplish the ministry work ahead.

Thank you for your generous support to allow Forest Home to improve our facilities to be a place where people can encounter Jesus, experience transformation, and engage the world. Over 300,000 people heard the Gospel and grew in their faith at Forest Home over the past seven years! Thank you for making this possible.


The Forrester Family

“Throughout our life God has used the generosity of others to bless us, including receiving Camperships to attend Forest Home retreats. God provided these Camperships to us, and now God is asking us to give back and bless others. We love that Forest Home continues to share the message of salvation through Jesus Christ and gives each camper a chance to accept Him. We are confident that giving to Camperships helps even more people experience Jesus and makes an investment with an eternal impact.”

The Hurtt Family

“It is everything to us that the Lord is at work in this endeavor. We want to be a part of what He is doing. I know the tremendous significance of this camp and the thousands of people who have come through it. The ministries that started at Forest Home are some of the most effective in the world. There is no reason we can’t continue to have that kind of impact in the 21st century. God used Forest Home to change my family. Lives are still changed every day on the mountain.”
