We also need you as ambassadors to tell others about the ministry here at Highland Lakes Camp and encourage those to bring their groups here and to invest their finances and support here as well.

Funds are needed for the ongoing operations of the ministry, development of the physical property, development of various ministries and programs and reduce debt load.

Income from operations of the camp are not enough to cover all these areas which are typical in camp ministry. The camp requires active participation of staff, board members and volunteers to raise necessary funds to properly and effectively serve our associational churches, other local denominations and churches and individuals in reaching, strengthening and refreshing those who use the camp facilities and its ministries.

All areas below are not in effect but they are on the drawing board for the near future. Click on the highlighted titles for links to the areas that are current and as God leads you. Thank You for partnering with HLCCC!

  • Remember, Highland Lakes is not a church—we are a para church ministry. Your tithe should go to your local church. Anything you do for Highland Lakes should be above and beyond your tithe to the local church.
