Camp Echoing Hills

Imagine never being able to meet your fullest potential because society isn’t ready to accept you with what it views as your limitations.

Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

The sad truth is that in reality, this is how most people with special needs are viewed. God sees a lot more for these individuals however, and He loves the people that society doesn’t value because of their handicaps.

At Camp Echoing Hills in Ohio, people with special needs are normal, capable, and valuable. They get to do things that they can never do anywhere else. And more importantly, they get to see the love of God in action through the love, care, and service that volunteers bring.

But you know what’s really interesting? Through the daily interactions, volunteers end up learning more about God than they expected, and we come back with a deeper love for God and others.

Our church will be sending a group of people to serve June 29–July 5, 2019, and we would appreciate your prayers and support.

For those interested in volunteering, the only requirements are an active Tetanus vaccine, a TB test completed within the past year, and a servant’s heart! Children under age 14 must be accompanied by a parent. If that describes you, please contact the church office to let us know!

About Camp Echoing Hills*

For over 50 years, Echoing Hills has supported thousands of families, friends and neighbors through our outreach to people with disabilities. We believe in creating opportunities for individuals with disabilities and assisting them in reaching their fullest potential. Our journey began with Cordell Brown’s dream of serving people like himself, with only $300 and a handful of friends who believed, Echoing Hills became a reality. From that humble beginning and two rustic cabins in rural Ohio, we now serve individuals with disabilities all over the state of Ohio and internationally with camping, travel, residential and healthcare and adult services. Our services all support our beliefs that all individuals can live purposeful lives with dignity and respect.
