Camp with a Conscience
Ferncliff was the perfect first camp on our journey. Their staff welcomed us in and actually helped us to develop our goals for this project more. David Gill, the (former) executive director at Ferncliff, is an innovator and an excellent teacher. Their programming is uniquely focused on stewarding God's creation; it made us more aware of how camps can intentionally teach creation care to the next generation. Their programs not only create a camp experience that is one of a kind, but also serve a missional purpose and make a difference in their community. We especially love their nature preschool program. As they grow, Ferncliff is seeking to develop their staff training and policies to encourage better leadership and equip their team for outstanding ministry.
Something Ferncliff does really well is balance eco-friendly practices with education. It’s one thing to care about the Earth – it’s another to teach others to care even more.
