Summer Campers Say...
First and foremost, I felt Jesus was everywhere I looked. We all had an amazing time. The staff was more than helpful, the accommodations were great and the food was outstanding. I can’t say one negative thing. Can’t wait for our next Stoney Creek Retreat.
– Judy, Church Staff Leader
