Your child’s day will be filled with Christian fellowship, friendship, recreation, and fun wrapped all together.  Whether strengthening your child’s faith through Bible study, devotions, trying new activities, or interacting with counselors and other campers, we want them to remember their stay with Jesus at the Lake.  Days are filled with recreation, crafts, activities, singing, and Bible study.  Evenings are the time where all the campers come together to share in devotions around a campfire and getting comfortable sharing their faith with others.

 Be a Volunteer! 

The Lord provided each of us with talents that can be put to use in service to the Lord by serving others.  There are several ways you can choice to perform volunteer service at Heit's Point.    They include...

  • individual
  • part of a group from a congregation, organization, or service group
  • Work/Camper program.  Several individuals (single and husband and wife teams) come to Heit's Point for extended periods during the year, camp in our camp grounds, and perform volunteer work.  Most of these volunteers come during the sumer months, but this type service could be performed at other times during the year.  Camping services and meals are provided free.

Regardless of which category you might choose, your time and work will be greatly appreciated and respected.  We only ask that you coordinate your desires for service with us well in advance of when you want to come.   By contacting us early helps us better align your wishes and schedule with the needs of Heit's Point.
