Life At A Christian Camp


Here is a picture of my 7 children and my daughter-in-law, Kristal. Andrew has been in the Navy for 2 years and is stationed in Norfolk, Virginia. We enjoy the rare visits we get to have with them!

I live at a Christian Camp with my husband and our 6 children. We have lived at a Christian Camp for 7 years (6 years at Jenness Park in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California and now a little over a year here at Cedarmore).

What is a Christian Camp? There are many people who, when they hear me say that I live at a Christian Camp, they think that I live at a campground and my husband is the Ranger. Or they think that I live at a religious Commune for hippies. 😉 Neither of those descriptions are accurate. A Christian Camp is a property designed for people to visit for either a retreat or for recreation (or a little bit of both). We welcome church groups, youth groups, schools, colleges and universities- secular and religious. We sometimes have people reserve a cabin for family reunions for the weekend or sometimes businesses will reserve a conference room for meetings. Here are some pictures of what life is like at the camp where we live.

Cedarmore Christian Camp in Bagdad, Kentucky. A beautiful place to live. A fun place for kids to enjoy the outdoors. A peaceful place for a retreat. It’s all here!

That’s my daughter, Lillia, going down the slide. You can see the splash of the water in the background that someone had just been blobbed.

Here I am with the younger one’s, hanging out under the Pavillion, while their older siblings swim in the lake.

More swimming at the lake. Isaac is on the left and his cousin Kaleb has on the goggles.

My husband, Mike, is the Food Service Director. He loves his job!

My husband has a hard-working crew in the kitchen to help things run smoothly.

Here I am with some of my kids and their friends, eating dinner at the dining hall.

Meals at the dining hall!

The kids get to have fun at a Just Dance party each week.

Isaac loves fishing for catfish.

Each night we get to hear awesome music from the Worship Team.

Last week there were over 600 students who came to camp! This particular week there were around 50 students who asked Jesus to be their Savior and around 50 who answered the call to Christian ministry.
