Cottages

We have a total of 21 cottages that belong to the shareholders who as part of the vision make their cottages available for ministry purposes. Two of the cottages have been especially designed as "meeting, eating" cottages where groups can gather together for meetings and meals. They are ideal for pastors, leaders, alphas, marriage seminars, worship and other adult groups. Each cottage is self contained varying in size and style.

Outdoor Camp

"Put the world at a child's feet, he'll take it for granted and trample it, put the world in his hands and he'll treasure it as something precious, take it away from him and he'll never understand its true value."

In many ways technology has created an artificial environment that took the world out of our children's hands. Their lack of knowledge and understanding of the outdoor and nature, results in little appreciation of it. In the outdoor camp we create a wilderness experience where we put the world back into their hands. Nature becomes something precious to treasure; an animal becomes more than just a creature and a desire is created to protect that which is nearly extinct. And with all this they discover the value of each other which has been lost in a world that is filled with selfish ambition.

This is truly a special outdoor experience and facilities include:

  • Room for 6 to 8 tents
  • Outside flush toilet
  • Outdoor rustic shower (cold water only)
