Construction to restore the camp property has begun and we are looking for people to aid in the repair process. If you know of skilled workers who may be of use in this project, or you are one yourself, please use the SIGN UP FORM to contact us.


Camp Alandale is a Christian camp for children in the foster care system. Our mission is to introduce abused children to the life changing and healing reality of Jesus Christ and equip them to lead meaningful and productive lives. We accomplish this by providing summer and winter camp programs for children ages 9-18 where they are introduced to the gospel, receive mentorship, experience healthy relational dynamics, and ultimately are impacted by the love of Christ.


On August 20th, Hurricane Hillary passed through Angelus Oaks. Despite preparations, damage still occurred to a few areas of camp property due to flash flooding. The river rose significantly with the rain, washing out all roads to camp, flooding the main residence, displacing and damaging a few cabins, and scattering heaps of mud, logs, and debris.  


Since the flood, staff and volunteers have been hard at work to repair damages and create a plan for reconstruction. The goal is to run camps on our property again as soon as possible with all safety. As of today, two roads leading to camp have been majorly improved, some external damage to the main residence has been repaired, and almost all debris has been cleared. This leaves the damaged cabins as our major area of repair and high priority need.


We are looking for workers to come up and help complete the rest of the repairs and reconstruction. If you and/or someone you know would be willing to assist on this project, please click the sign up button below and fill out the form. We are looking for all kinds of workers, skilled or unskilled, paid or volunteer. We value all help available to get camp property running again and to help fulfill our mission of bringing the gospel to abused children.


AUGUST 27, 2023

August 20th, a week after summer camp ended, Hurricane Hilary passed through Angelus Oaks and all of our onsite staff were able to evacuate safely. Despite preparations, damage still occurred to a few areas of camp property due to flash flooding and high winds. The river rose significantly with the rain, washing out all roads to camp, flooding the main residence, and scattering heaps of mud and debris. Four of the girl cabins were moved by the current, crashing into each other. This was disappointing news to face but we are grateful that the rest of camp property remains safely intact! The areas of camp located further from the river remain in safe condition, such as the lodge, boys cabins, west side cabins, pool, and other key areas. This is deeply encouraging. We know that the Lord is continuing to guide and protect Camp Alandale.

The severe damage to the roads is the most significant issue. The flooding of the river wiped out all the roads leading to camp. Because much of those repairs will be up to the state and county, the timeline for repair is out of our control. In the meantime we plan to work on repairing the damage to camp property and moving forward with the winter and summer program however and wherever the Lord provides.

A MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDERS: Karen and I, Robin, founded Camp back in 1980. Over these 43 years there have been lots of attacks from the enemy trying to close down the ministry. With God’s grace, we have never given in to these attacks and this situation is no different. This is God’s camp. This is God’s ministry. It is our father God’s loving heart that wants all of us to continue to reach out to the hurting. We know God loves these abused children even more than we do. He has a plan for this ministry to continue into the future. Because God is for us we know that no evil force can stand against us.

We, the Board and all the staff, want to thank you for your prayers and support. Thank you to the volunteers that are already showing up to help. God bless you all!
