“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.”
In our 80 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 mountain top experience. When you give to Forest Home, you are making an Eternal Impact by advancing the Gospel through the power of camp ministry.

Stories from home
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.”
