Making Room: New Hemlock Lodge

Room to grow

Covenant Point is a place of wholeness. We want every camper and guest to know that there is a place for them at camp. They belong, and here they can experience the kind of wholeness God provides in Jesus Christ. Expanding our space for sleeping and gathering in a new lodge allows us to extend our welcome, inviting more people to find a place to belong, more people to taste what a full, whole life in Jesus offers. As several of our key programs are growing, Hemlock Lodge will be a significant addition to our ability to extend this welcome. Updates to the adjacent Aspen and Birch lodges will equip us to offer a trio of fresh housing options. Specifically, we will be better able to keep pace with ministry growth, extend hospitality to guest groups, respond to changing camper and guest expectations, provide for increased needs for summer staff housing and expand accessible lodging. We are making room at camp!
