The number of campers at Lake Geneva Christian Center (LGCC) continues to grow year after year and this summer the trend has continued. With the completion of the Dining and Event Center and other updates, LGCC has quickly become one of the premiere campgrounds in the state of Minnesota. In the past 5 years alone, we’ve seen a 20% overall increase in year-round campground usage. This summer Family Camp was again at full capacity, and we also experienced record attendance in our age-graded camps. Over the past dozen years Kids Camps have grown from 1,054 campers to 1,972 campers and Youth Camps have grown from 1,755 campers to over 3300 campers.
Along with the growth in attendance has come growth in spiritual impact on the Next Generation. Children, students, and leaders all come with the expectation of powerful worship, preaching, and extended times in God’s presence. Because of the growth in numbers, the altar is no longer just a space at the front of the worship center, but the entire building is now utilized. Each summer more students come to Christ and experience the presence of the Lord. We hear story after story of those who can point to the very spot where they surrendered their lives to Christ, were baptized in the Holy Spirit, were healed, and called to missions. We are taking steps to increase our capacity at camp, and we believe this initiative will not only impact generations, but eternity as well.
