Christian Overcomers Non-profit Org
Christian Overcomers continues to provide a unique opportunity through a week-long camp ministry wherein three times each year (July, August, and October), people with disabilities can retreat from their homes and enjoy outdoor activities as well as nurture and develop friendships, and hear God’s word. The camp is held at Spruce Lake Retreat in Canadensis, Pennsylvania in the Pocono Mountains, a facility that seeks to eliminate physical barriers as they fulfill their mission to “point people to Christ”. Campers with disabilities come to camp from various states and range in age from 17 to 70+.
The participation of a full-time volunteer caregiver for each camper with a disability is vital to the safety and success of this program. The volunteers care for and assist the campers for the duration of each camp. These volunteers make it possible for the camp to accommodate many degrees of disabilities, including extremely challenged individuals. The camp’s success is due in large part to the heart-felt caring and commitment of each volunteer, to fulfill our call to welcome and bless people with all types and ranges of physical disabilities.
In addition to the camps, Christian Overcomers provides coffee houses wherein music, snacks, and social interaction come together. There is a late summer/early fall picnic, a Christmas dinner and a Spring banquet.
We are always looking for volunteers besides donation to the ministry. The donations that we receive will go towards the programs that we provide.
