A festival in honor of the King will commence in the fair months of summer hence and all the young lords and ladies of the land are invited to attend! It will be a grand celebration held in the courts of Camp Elim in the highlands of Colorado. Though we live in perilous times, there will be much joy and merriment in the encampment!
In days of old, knights in shining armor kept guard over the inhabitants of the nearby castle lest the enemy should overtake them. In the same way a wise king admonished his subjects:
“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” - Proverbs 4:23
Your heart is your greatest asset, for it can do more for you than anything else. It is much more than the muscle beating seventy times per minute in your chest.
The direction of your heart determines the direction your life. Blessing or grief in your life depends in large part on ruling and training your heart. If you direct and instruct your heart with godly inputs, there is no limit to your potential success before God and men.
For 58 years Camp Elim has been about the task of training hearts. Under the guidance of our highly trained and well supervised staff and counselors, your child will learn lessons that will help establish their path by the counsel of the Word of God. In the process many enter into a personal relationship with the King of kings and the Lord of lords!
Join us this summer for the grand adventure of a lifetime. But don’t delay lest the spaces be taken!
