Camp ECCO exists as a place apart from everyday life for all people to experience the transforming power of Jesus Christ through creation, recreation, and meaningful conversation.
This is How We Measure Success:
Value - It is our goal as a community that the first thing you might experience is the realization that you are valuable. You are valuable to us and our community because of your unique personality, experiences, and calling. We considered ourselves blessed to get to serve you and grow with you. Most importantly, you are important to God and His kingdom. You are valuable just because you are His creation, and we hope to help show you that reality. Unite - Whether you are at the camp for a band camp, a retreat, or one of our programmed weeks, our hope is that you might become united with the people that you are with. That you would develop stronger, lifelong relationships, find mentors, and create lots of inside jokes. We hope also that you might become connected to and encouraged by the body of Christ so that you may be supported beyond your time at camp, and also that you would have a personal encounter with Christ Himself. Empower - Lastly, we are seeking to empower every individual that walks on to our grounds. Our goal is to help them all become more confident individuals with purpose, direction, and a desire to serve. We seek especially to empower our campers to become the light of Christ in their communities and become leaders in the communities they are planted in and for the camp itself.
Camp ECCO will be a consistent sanctuary for believers and unbelievers of every age to come and experience God first-hand through worship, teaching, and personal devotion in a distraction-free environment. Campers, visitors, rental groups, and staff persons will be surrounded by others living a full-time Christian faith, investing in intentional relationships, and putting God’s will first. We will provide a refreshing and encouraging atmosphere where all people may be equipped to fight the good fight of faith in their lives and communities. We will also be innovative; constantly thinking of new ways to grow, be more like Christ, and empower the community and world to know Jesus Christ.
