*We operate on Eastern Time Zone

We are a small camp for a small town. A nonprofit, nondenominational Christian summer camp ministry in New Carlisle.


CORE 2:15

Our name was chosen because we want people to get back to the CORE of who God created them to be.
You are created uniquely and differently than everyone who has ever lived and you have special gifts and abilities to use to build the body of Christ!
The 2:15 is in reference to Philippians 2:15, we want God’s people to be those lights that shine in any dark and crooked generation by simply being who God created them to be.

About: Building and Phasing


We have officially launched our bathhouse campaign, the goal is to sell all 1000 pieces of this puzzle to fund the first phase of the bathhouse/pavilion.

Follow the link to our campaign platform where we will keep things updated with the most recent photos, stories and progress.

We are extremely excited to do this with you all, camp has come a long way over the few years we have been out here and it is with out a doubt a project that God has His hand in. Such a pleasure to serve this way.

Would you join us in helping children discover God and develop their gifts in an outdoor setting? Would you prayerfully consider what you may be able to give to help fund each developmental phase of camp? We are so grateful for those who have been able to serve and give to this mission. We LOVE having them on our team!
