What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

With countless activities and distractions demanding their time, children and teens have never been busier. But their relationship with God has never been more important. It’s hard for today's youth to find time to stop, take a breath, and grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Camp Sunrise exists to inspire and equip youth to love God, serve others, and impact the world around them. We want every child who visits Sunrise to leave better equipped to grow in their relationship with God and others.

Sunrise hosts summer camps, year-round retreats, and field trips to invest in the lives of children and teens. At each event we provide educational and outdoor experiences, along with biblical teaching and opportunities for spiritual conversation. We seek to build connections with youth and encourage them in their walk with God through each encounter.

Camp Sunrise's 100+ acre facility operates year-round, serving a wide variety of groups throughout the year. Field trips make use of educational opportunities such as a planetarium and railroad. Camps and retreats use a variety of activities including field games and classes such as archery, canoeing, or hiking. Two lodges and a dining hall provide opportunities for longer visits, such as overnight camps and retreats.
Carefully selected staff ensure a safe and welcoming environment for guests. These staff receive training each year, equipping them for their various roles around the camp.

Thousands of children and teens have attended camp, visited the planetarium, or come for a retreat at Camp Sunrise. In the years ahead, we want to grow our impact deeper and wider.
Deeper: We want to invest in the life of each guest intentionally, finding new opportunities to point them to Jesus in every area of life.
Wider: We want to expand our outreach to more children and teens in the years to come. We will do this through camps and retreats that grow both in number and in size.
