    Tearing Down Walls, Rebuilding Lives

    The caring community is what sets The Island apart from other youth camps. Our qualified counselors from Word of Life Bible Institute are committed to helping campers step away from life’s hardships and encounter the hope of Jesus Christ. Students who come to camp with hurts, heartache, and unhealthy habits walk away with biblical truths to help them navigate their daily lives.

    Life Change

    quote icon
    At camp, I was convicted that I need to serve and mentor younger students. Once I got home, I told the middle schoolers at my church, “You guys are the future; you need to start leading now, and we’re here to help.”

    – Camper
    quote icon
    We brought several foster teens, all of whom come from difficult backgrounds. It was wonderful to see them open up and thrive in a safe place free from judgement. One student decided to trust Jesus, leaving her past at the cross. Her brother’s heart was softened also, which was a huge step for him.
