to the Core!
The Wilds Christian Association, Inc. is an
independent, nondenominational, nonprofit,
501(c)(3) organization created for the purpose
of operating Christian camps and conference
centers. We are fundamental in our beliefs,
Bible-centered in our philosophy, and
evangelistic in our outreach.
The Wilds Christian Association, Inc. presently
operates a Christian camp and conference
center in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western
North Carolina that is open year-round. The
camp has a carefully selected and trained staff
and averages over 20,000 campers per year. In
2009 The Wilds of New England began ministry
at our campsite in Deering, New Hampshire. In
this peaceful, rural setting we experienced good
growth in attendance at our summer camps as
well as in our limited fall schedule programs.
We anticipate a continuing steady growth and
expansion of the ministry at this New England
location.
In addition to providing a God-honoring music
publication service as an integral part of our
ministry, The Wilds Christian Association, Inc.
has also established the CampsAbroad program
to assist others in the formation and operation
of Christian camp ministries around the world.

he Wilds has six Core Values that
we treasure! Our six Core Values
are things that should never change as
long as the Lord sees fit to keep this
place around for His glory.
A Core Value is the DNA of a ministry and, by definition, “that which is inside,
nearest the center of a thing.” With most of our Core Values, we hope that
a picture may immediately come to your mind and you might say, “Yes, I’ve
seen that happen” or “felt that feeling at The Wilds.” If I said that one of the
Core Values of The Wilds is faithful to the Bible, I hope everyone would
immediately relate to that being a proven core of anyone’s experience at
The Wilds. But, what if I say, “One of the Core Values of The Wilds is a

refreshing enjoyment of life in Christ”? Huh? Would that resonate? We

certainly hope so! In this NewsLetter we want to take you

in God’s presence as He speaks through it when we’re

on a thoughtful and maybe even slightly zany tour of what

former campers about a refreshing enjoyment of life in

God’s people. The Wilds is the ready place for enjoyment,
but the refreshing enjoyment is all brought about by the
hope that life in Christ brings to each of us.

Part of refreshing enjoyment is being in a totally
different, out-of-the-ordinary environment.
How refreshing it is to be “away from it all”—for
instance, beautiful, majestic surroundings that
display the power of God in creation.
Refreshing enjoyment is hearing God’s Word
and works magnified in singing and preaching.

The freshness and

enthusiasm this group
brings to The Wilds
is amazing. What a privilege it is to work with
dedicated young adults who were certainly
examples of people who embodied this
refreshing enjoyment we talk about! In

surveying the summer staff, the word joyful
was used over and over to describe their

experience at camp. Here is their take on
refreshing enjoyment of life in Christ:

• Closeness, unity,
family atmosphere, and
comradery of the staff
• Funtime
• Hiking to the 4th Falls
• Tubing the creek
• Spiritually uplifting and
Christ-honoring music
• Preaching that
communicates love for God
and others
• Scriptural philosophy grounding
everything we do
• In a few short minutes, being able to
go from 100% craziness in a game to
counseling a camper from God’s Word
• Beauty of the campsite
• Joyful attitude of the full-time staff

CampsAbroad
Summer 2014 has been one of the busiest on record for

CampsAbroad—which makes it a challenge to fit everything into
one brief article. I’ll have to settle for giving a few highlights
from each trip. Our summer trips encompassed Africa, Asia,
Central America, and the Middle East.

Lebanon • August
Our first camping experience in the Middle East was greatly
blessed in many ways. The culture and setting presented some
unique challenges, but the Lord overcame it all.
The camps in Lebanon will always be small because the churches
are small, but there is great potential to multiply ministry by adding
camp weeks at the beautiful property the Lord has provided.
At least two young people trusted Christ as Savior—a radical
decision in that culture—and two children from Muslim homes left
camp seriously considering the claims of Jesus.
God is working in Lebanon!

Mexico • July
Pastor Ivan is seeking to establish a youth camp for churches in
the Vera Cruz area of Mexico. Ever since he was a counselor at
one of the camps that CampsAbroad assisted in Monterrey, he
has been burdened for this ministry.
Camp was held at a rental property on a high mountain—as in
10,000 feet high! It was downright cold in the evenings.
The staff did an incredible
job throughout the week,
and the Christian young
people were greatly
impacted by God’s Word,
especially gaining better
understanding of the
significance of the gospel
for them as believers.

South Africa/
Malawi • June
Dan Brooks flew solo on this multi-purpose survey trip.
First stop was Paardeberg Mountain Retreat to observe
their training and to see the camp in action. There is an
excellent possibility that we may be able to return there
in the future to assist with some training.

served to the day campers. They are continuing to learn
by trial and error. For now, they are sticking to short,
gospel-oriented day camps.

This campsite in a beautifully wild, remote setting is blossoming
through sacrificial work.
About 50 people showed up for the staff training, many of them
traveling over 24 hours to come to camp, and some brought their
families with them! They did well learning the ropes of a brand new
philosophy of camping.
Many of the campers who
attended had zero exposure to
the gospel before coming to
camp—they were mostly rough
inner city kids. About 25 of
the very first batch of campers
made decisions to trust Christ
as Savior. In evaluating the
camp, the campers offered only one suggestion: “extend the days
of camp!”

Around 50 people
from many local
churches across
eastern China
attended the staff
training.
After a month of solid rain, the Lord gave us 3 clear
days for the camp—then it started raining again!
The clear days were a great blessing because the
campers ended up sleeping in tents when the
property owner went back on the agreement to let
us use several buildings.

Mongolia • July

In spite of this, the kids attending had a great time,
and 16 young people professed Christ as Savior!

China • May

Hong Kong • July
More area churches participated in camp this year than ever
before. Wade Peltier ran the program while Mark Herbster
represented CampsAbroad and did the main
speaking for the camp.
Many of the counselors were greatly impacted
by the principles of servant leadership and
expressed interest in counseling again in future
camps.
One young man shared that he now realizes that
he needs to eliminate sin in his life while he is
young so that it does not control him later.

young people all over

whom do not even

value of refreshing
enjoyment of life in
Christ? I sure do!

Life in Christ: The phrase is alive with some wonderful and colorful
theological words: redemption (Romans 2:24); no condemnation
(Romans 8:1); sanctified (1 Corinthians 1:2); triumph (2 Corinthians
1:21); new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17); simplicity (2 Corinthians
11:3); consolation (Philippians 2:1); exceeding abundant grace, faith,
and love (1 Timothy 1:14); and salvation (2 Timothy 2:10).

Camp is a great place to “show-off”
what God has done for you. Think about
it! Once you know that you are saved,
redeemed, forgiven, and sanctified with
the promise of living a triumphant life as
a new creation in Christ that is immersed
in God’s abundant grace and love, how
could you not smile with your eyes, your
face, and your heart?
I wondered why so many campers come
to camp walking like Eeyores but leave
bouncing like Tiggers. So we asked them
four simple questions, and here are their
simple answers.

What do you enjoy at The Wilds of
New England that makes you want
to come back?
* Counselors, encouraging staff,
people who work here
* Everything!
* Preaching, messages, and services
* The Zipline and Laser Tag

What do you hope and pray never
changes at The Wilds of New
England?

* The philosophy, spirit, and attitude of
TWNE
* The music and standards
* Everything!
* Spiritual atmosphere

If you brought a friend to The Wilds
of New England, what would you
make sure they wouldn’t miss?
* Zipline, Laser Tag, and crazy games
* The services and preaching
* The song services and God & I Time
* Everything!
The refreshing enjoyment of life in Christ is a core value
of our ministry. It is a simple way to show all who come to

our camps that it truly is wonderful to be a Christian. I love

What comes to your mind that
brings a smile to you?
* Funtime

* The crazy, fun, encouraging staff
* Everything!
* Friends, food, and so many wonderful
memories

to see it in our ministry, endeavor to see it in my own life,
and know that God desires to see it in your life. Eeyore or
Tigger? It’s your choice.

I Cling to Christ
The words of these meditative, quietly triumphant
songs admonish us "to look to, to rest in, to bow
before, and to stand complete in" one person and
one alone – Jesus Christ, our Savior. These guitar
stylings remind us that we must cling to Him now
and forever. This recording features guitar soloists
Billy Peters and Matt Taylor.
