Reduced stress

As a pastor and wife, this has been a wonderful time to relax, unwind, pray, retreat, and think outside the box. It is amazing how much these five days have reduced stress and helped us to be ready to begin again. Praise the Lord!

Lillibeth

It was our first time here, and it was amazing what we saw. The cabins were perfect, the conference room as well.
The youth group wants to come back! They got closer to God (mainly). But also to one another. Made new friends and they're excited to come back and as a youth leader that inspires and motivates me to always be involved and do more.

A very special time in my life.

I have very fond memories attending, children's camp, youth camp, and during the winter snow camp. I grew up attending camp from my childhood when my mother would come as a counselor and bring my younger brother and sister. I made so many friends attending camp here. A very special time in my life. I am in my 50's and am happy to know that this special place is still being enjoyed.

Kimberly

Wonderful Experience

Our Deacon's Retreat was a wonderful experience that brought us closer to God and to each other - the setting at White Oak Lodge was a constant reminder of how great our God is! Everything was perfectly laid out for us and all details were well thought out. Staff did a great job! Thank you.

Staff was very helpful...extremely happy with entire staff!

Your staff was very friendly and helpful with the zipline. They were very attentive that all of the kids had enough time to do multiple zips. I was extremely happy with the entire staff for the length of our stay. I was approached multiple time by staff to see how we were doing and making sure we were having a good time. I hope to come back and stay soon!

Servant Heart

Everything was great. Jenness Park staff has always been very friendly and hospitable to the groups that come here! Thank you for each individual person, whether it's cooking, cleaning, or selling the treats, each person had a servant heart and we greatly appreciate the Jenness Park staff.


Very hospitable

Jenness was very hospitable and very quickly dealt with any issues that were brought to their attention.


Fabulous Christian example!

The kitchen staff was continually helpful, pleasant and going out of their way to help with issues in and out of their area. Having a student who became ill, they helped me with an appropriate meal and offered to call first aid. This happened even while they were incredibly busy. The attitude expressed was as if they could give me all the time in the world. What a fabulous Christian example.

My heart is overwhelmed with joy hearing the testimonies of our 11 young people who were there last week(July 28-Aug-2).

May God continue to use you and empower each one of you for His glory. God Bless you and your family.. - LIFE Saving Christian Fellowship Youth Ministry.

Incredible Gift From God

Have been up several times for the Mother-Daughter retreat. Such an amazing, beautiful campus. Great food! Cabins are comfortable. Such an incredible gift from God - a gorgeous natural environment in which to seek Him and grow in your relationship with Christ.

Christy

Life-Changing

Thank you for sending me to camp. Being a 16 year old girl and not believing in God, I did not want to come. Now, the week is over and I've never wanted to be so far from home. I've been opened up to the many truths of God. I let Him engulf my soul and I let christ come into my life. If I could do this week over again, I would. But I wouldn't change a thing. I've learned what it means to be a real Christian. And I hope I can profess my faith to everyone.

10th Grader

My Experience

My experience here changed a big part of my life. Through the games and message, God gave me answers to questions that I wasn't even seeking at the time. I will definitely come back next year!!!

Gabe

Forgiveness

Our group dealt with forgiveness and without the camp setting, this probably would not have happened.

Brian

The whole family feels welcome

Our family looks forward to the Jenness Park Homeschool camp every year. Our children get fed Biblically based history with the Learning Stations provided. The camp has wonderful food and makes the whole family feel welcome to join in the activities, even the toddlers. Our family will be there for years to come.

Tara

Christ centered and God exalting

My children thought the cabin bunk beds were better than a trip to Disneyland. The teaching was Christ centered and the worship always God exalting! All the activities are for the ENTIRE family to do together. Mom's with strollers and backpacks and Ergo's ABOUND. We are so blessed they do not split up the family and send the kids to their own activities.

Laureen
