“Angeles Crest Christian Camp has and will always hold a special place in my heart.
Much of my childhood was spent there as a camper which led to becoming a part of the work crew that served those excited for the mountain-top experience. As much as I loved those days, nothing was better than the Father Son camps.
As a child, I always looked forward to October. That’s when I knew I would be heading up the mountain with Dad. Coming from a house of four boys, I craved that time with him. Together we would compete in obstacle course races, worship and pray, climb “the Wall”, and drink endless amounts of hot chocolate.
I truly believe these experiences nurtured my love for the outdoors.
As I got older, my younger brothers would join us at the Father Son camps and even my grandfather would
come. It was quite bombastic to have 3 generations attend together!
Now I am a father myself.
Bringing my 7-year-old son Noah to Father Son Camp was a game changer for me. We had a blast adventuring together, building a derby car, and praying together.
As a child, I knew how important it was to listen to adults. Whether it be a pastor, teacher, worship leader, or my parents. But as an adult and father myself, I believe it’s crucial to become an even better listener. Our kids have things to share, they wrestle with tough stuff. Sometimes a good cup of hot chocolate, mountain air, and the freedom from distractions is just the right thing. Even the farting competitions in the cabins are just as fun.
Here’s the deal fellow dads.
Time is a traveler, and it stops for no one. As men, we have to make time to spend with our kids. I’m grateful for Angeles Crest Christian Camp and their willingness to create a space for dads and sons to explore and grow as people and as Christ followers.
-Daniel Monroe, (grateful father, son, and grandson)
THIS JACKET SAYS IT ALL
In 2019 thousands of students and leaders retreated at Angeles Crest.
This young man came to camp with the Angeles Church. Dave McGovern, the pastor told us:
“The students and staff of Angeles Church Youth had an amazing weekend at Angeles Crest Christian Camp for our 2019 Fall Retreat. God met us on the mountain in a powerful way, and our students came back down to the city ready to turn the world upside down with the gospel of Jesus Christ…so that it will be in LA as it is in Heaven!”
Here’s a big Angeles Crest thank you to Tory and Tyler Ortmann for all the volunteer work they’ve invested at Angeles Crest!
For 15 years Tory has generously volunteered to make an eternal impact at Angeles Crest by working on projects like:
- Installing the dining hall tile floor
- Floating the interior chapel wall
- Building retaining walls in the north area
- Repairing tile in the kitchen
- Pouring concrete slabs and recently remodeling the outside of Pines Meeting Room with new siding.
Like Father, Like Son!
Not only has Tory been a faithful volunteer, but his son Tyler has also been a great help, as well. Tyler started as a summer staffer. Tyler is now an apprentice electrician and has been using his electrical skills to bless both the staff and guests at Angeles Crest.
A big shout out to Tory & Tyler for all the work to make our ministry a success!
You’re the best!!
Dining room entrance gets face-lift.
The truth is, the birds were at camp first.
Although the holes in our dining room walls created a cool ‘rustic’ vibe, we did a little freshening up. Thanks to our generous volunteers from First Christian Church, Newbury Park – we have a new look!
Thanks to Ken Lamont, Chris Syverson, Sam Teeters, Tamela Teeters, Brian Padrick, Rob Kohlhepp, and Andrew Zweigler!
NEW ROOF NEEDED FOR CHAPEL
Do you remember Amy Grant’s song:
If These Walls Could Speak?
If these old walls,
If these old walls could speak
Of things that they remember well,
Stories and faces dearly held…tales to tell
Of sun goin’ down and dinner bell,
And children playing at hide and seek
From floor to rafter,
If these halls could speak.
They would tell you that I owe you
More than I could ever pay.
Here’s someone who really loves you;
Don’t ever go away.
That’s what these walls would say.
Sometimes I stand in awe.
Quietly leaning against the back wall of our chapel during worship or fun games – I think – WOW. The stories this chapel could tell.
Lives transformed by Jesus.
Future leaders called to ministry.
It’s why we create great mountain-top experiences at Angeles Crest Christian Camp.
Our aging chapel roof has become a serious distraction to ministry.
Leaks needed to be repaired.
Your support to help pay the $15,200 bill ensures that the work is done before winter hits.
Would you please consider a generous year end, tax-deducable gift to the ministry of Angeles Crest?
