Camp Anderson is a Christian Retreat and Summer Camp that is centrally located in North Florida on the incredibly beautiful Suwannee River. Our teenagers attend summer camp here and love it! Beyond the great fun and the opportunity for our teens to connect to God, it is also a mission trip. Camp Anderson has been recognized in the State of Florida as the camp for teens that are in the foster care system. Our teens formed relationship and loved on others that are have significant family issues and hurts. We also provided funds so all the foster kids at our camp week would have money in their store account.
As Church of the Lakes launch team prepared for launch day, they took several weeks to visit and partner with other ARC churches. We made a financial investments in these churches and we are very grateful for their hospitality and willingness to host and invest in us.
