Dear Friend of Trout Creek,

I am amazed at the Lord’s faithfulness for the last 75 years! Not that I am necessarily shocked or surprised that He is true to His character, but rather, in awe! Decade after decade, year after year, month after month, and moment after moment, He provides, He protects, He sustains, He supplies, and He renews the ministry here at Trout Creek Bible Camp. The Lord has been transforming and renewing the lives of thousands of children and youth since 1945! His faithfulness is amazing!
This past year was no different. The Lord was faithful in the smallest details of the day-to-day operations of our summer programs; in providing excellent summer staff, in bringing many campers, in changing hearts and lives, in providing amazing facilities, the list goes on and on.  When all is normal and under control, or even not so normal, He is here sustaining the entire ministry. He is indeed, faithful!
Because of the Lord’s amazing faithfulness and the work of our counselors and staff, we were able to interact and serve over 3,200 campers this summer. We are also excited to report that 748 campers trusted Jesus as their Savior for the first time or a made commitment to follow Him more closely. The Lord has been faithfully blessing and using Trout Creek for the last 75 years to transform and renew the lives of thousands of children and youth! His faithfulness is amazing!
Because of the Lord’s amazing faithfulness campers had life-changing experiences! Here are some personal testimonies to that truth:
"What I love about trout creek is that it's super fun and you get to learn about God. this week I learned that He is your savior. and camp is just really fun throughout the entire week and other kids should come to camp cause it’s a really fun experience to learn about God and have fun with your friends."
-Torrance, 12 year old camper
"Amazing summer camp. Our son raves about this place and has been coming back every summer. Great staff, lots of activities, and a safe fun place where the kids are welcomed. He'll be back again."
Kevin, Camper Parent
"It is the highlight of my son’s year! This year is his 11th as a camper."
Rachel, Camper Parent
Because of the Lord’s amazing faithfulness, we are very close to starting the construction of the new volunteer staff cabins. We have received land use permits and we expect the building and sanitation permits to be issued within the next month. When those final two permits are in hand, we will break ground on seven new cabins and a program office. We hope to have all of them ready for our summer staff by June 2020!
Because of the Lord’s amazing faithfulness, the funding for the staff cabin project is nearly complete. We are very grateful to the Lord for His faithfulness in raising the funds from so many sources. We are thankful for the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust for awarding a very generous grant, and for the many generous supporters and friends of the camp who have donated sacrificially to make this project possible!
Because of the Lord’s amazing faithfulness, we have you, our faithful partners in this endeavor of offering hope and peace to so many campers who are struggling in a world filled with strife, and besieged by hopelessness.  Thank you for your partnership!
Because of the Lord’s amazing faithfulness, we have enjoyed many blessings over the years! However, we do not want to reflect only on our past, we desire to keep our focus on the Lord and forge ahead into the future. We have complete confidence that He will continue to use the camp to bring glory to His name, as we are faithful to Him!
"At Trout Creek I learned that God will accept me no matter what. Even if my friends or someone else doesn’t accept me ... No matter how you look or act, God will always love you."
Jani, 11 year old camper
May the Lord direct you as you prayerfully consider your part in advancing the ministry of Trout Creek Bible Camp!  We cannot forge ahead for the next 75 years without the Lord’s amazing faithfulness, and your partnership.

We are thankful for your commitment to Trout Creek and we appreciate your support. May His joy and peace be yours in abundance!
      Amazed by His faithfulness,
