A PLACE WHERE LIVES ARE CHANGED
“Eagle Bay Camp, a place where lives are changed. That’s a big claim, no matter how you look at it. How can a week, a month, or even a summer at camp change somebody’s life? The truth is it isn’t just the camp, it’s God. God’s presence is just so saturated into every aspect of Eagle Bay, that it’s inescapable. And it’s that focus on God and on each and every camper that comes to Eagle Bay that legitimately changed my life forever.”
"I couldn't see God and no amount of theological debate/persuasion could knock me out of it. I was hungry for something real. When I looked back at my life I tried to search for moments where I felt I had "life to the full." The moments I kept going back to were my LIT years at EBC. My experience at EBC gave me hope."
" I came back a different person. I learned that it’s alright to be yourself and to be open with others because those are the moments where God helps us grow most and achieve even greater things through Him."
