Building a Youth Activity Center (gym) to grow Spruce Lake Wilderness Camp into a year-round Youth Ministry Center for pointing more young people toward Christ!


Your gifts toward the building campaign last fall created the surge we needed to begin the construction of the new gym. With the money received toward the needed 2,600,000 dollars, we started construction in September, 2017, and expect to open for the summer season of 2018.

The project is already 60% funded. Now our focus is on two things: completing the building before next summer, and prayerfully doing so without debt. We need approximately 1,000,000 dollars to finish the Youth Ministry Center, depending on the final construction cost. To see this goal accomplished, a few significant donors have given us a challenge. They have committed to MATCH half of the remaining 1,000,000 dollars … that’s correct!

We have a 500,000 dollar challenge to complete this special building with no debt.

It has been a spectacular season at Spruce Lake, but we believe it is only the beginning of what God has in store for us. We believe this influential ministry is going to impact more and more people each year. The property and buildings create the platform that will allow us to “Point People Toward Christ” long into the future. God is leading us forward, and we are all his laborers.
