Our vision is to develop and operate a year-round Christian camp and conference center where people of all ages can unplug from the world and step into a serene setting to draw closer to God.
To provide individuals and groups the opportunity to be still and listen to God in a safe, wholesome environment through fun and exciting summer camps, retreats and conferences.
Building Moore’s Keep Christian Camp.
For the past several years our focus has been to put in place the infrastructure necessary to support camper housing and camp activities. Clearing for and building of roads, construction of the entrance to the camp, securing and putting in place permanent staff housing, and the construction of a lumber shed, maintenance building and equipment shed are some of the project that have been undertaken. We are presently working toward completion of the camp sewer system, the pool and clearing, grading and seeding of the Castle Complex before 2017 camps.
Where We’re Headed
We are now poised to begin what we envisioned so many years ago. The Village, to be located in the Castle Complex, will be our first permanent facility to house campers and will include dining and worship areas. The anticipated completion of the pool will provide water recreation activities as well s the large volume of clean water needed for the fire protection system in The Village. The construction of The Village will allow us to expand our present 4 week program to a full 10 weeks of Christian camps with a capacity of 120 campers per week along with other retreat and conference opportunities.
God has blessed us with a visionary Board of Directors, along with a number of architects, engineers, builders and volunteers who have devoted countless hours to this great endeavor.
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
We've reached several key milestones in our vision to build Moore's Keep Christian Camp. In 1986, God prompted the pastor of a small church to encourage his congregation to conduct its own camp for its young people in a rented facility. Two of the volunteers at that first Camp Victory, Tom and Nicky Lewis, experienced firsthand how God could use the fun, safe, and serene setting of a camp to speak His truth into the hearts of those young people. Tom and Nicky had such a desire to be a part of something so special that they went back for the next 16 years. In 2002, both Tom and Nicky felt God's calling to establish a permanent home for the Camp Victory and founded Benchmark Ministries to do so.
A 83,000 gallon, 40’ x 80’ swimming pool and associated bathhouse was completed.
