Welcome to Upon the Rock!!!
Upon the Rock is a Christian Camp for kids and families. Our goal is to bring the life saving good news of Jesus Christ to the lost, while providing the opportunity and the tools for the saved to develop a deeper relationship with their Savior.
This non-profit organization is Christ-centered, and is not affiliated with any particular denomination because our goal is to minister to anyone who desires to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Upon The Rock is needed because the pressures of society are causing people to forget their "first love." With the hurry-scurry of life, God is taking a back seat in the lives of children and adults. Upon the Rock provides a setting and a program, which helps participants to focus on what is truly important.
For the past seventeen summers, we have rented a facility for our elementary and junior camp programs. This time of renting a facility has made it possible to develop our program operation skills, but more importantly, God has used the last seventeen years of camp to show His faithfulness, and to make Himself and His Word real to the campers and the staff.
In 2007, God provided the funds through numerous generous donors to pay off the 120 acres that He led us to here in beautiful La Veta, Colorado. In March of 2009 the Master Plan for building was approved by the county. In July 2010, $25,000 of underground electricity was installed. This past September, the well driller came to the property and found that there was no water in our first drilling attempt. We are now developing Plan B for the water well, and look forward to drilling again this year. Currently, our Capital Campaign is underway for our first building... The Cornerstone Lodge. This campaign is close to being fully funded so work is being done to develop the working blue prints and plans are being made for the official ground breaking on this project! These are exciting times for Upon The Rock, and our prayer is that you will choose to be part of this ministry in some way.
Serving Christ Wholeheartedly,
