Glen Eden is a youth camp that I hold very near and dear to my heart. I began going to the week long youth camp as a child and on through my teenage years. After becoming an adult I was blessed with the opportunity of becoming a councillor, giving me a chance to give back to childern much like myself as an adolescent. I also do some of the upkeep to the facilities at times. Most people would have a hard time believing the power and energy of these grounds, but let me tell ya, this place truely touches people. I couldn't begin to count the number of miracles that I have personally seen take place on these holy grounds. A very special place that feels more like home than my own.

We have a family cemetary there. We would go up in a big group and depend the weekend cleaning and repairing around . They use to allow us one of the bunk houses and the kitchen to use durning the weekend . We come from all over . We always left the place cleanser than we found it and truly loved doing our part. For years they have not allowed us to stay so we haven't been able to do this. Would love to start up again and help anyway we could . We all have different skills . Please let me know if this could happen.

nestled in the hills of untouched natural forest is a small camp with a huge heart...The soul of Glen Eden was established by its founders Reverend John R Chambers and Rev Caudill. Their dream to give hope to children living in poverty, to provide spiritual foundations and education for those who perhaps had no other opportunities to find them. I grew up on Glen Eden, playing in the creek, climbing beneath the waterfalls, swimming in the river. As a military brat, Glen Eden provided me with an anchor to a "home" I didn't have otherwise. My memories are of singing, exploring, and worshipping our wonderful God. I am looking forward to working there as an adult counselor in the future.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The lives of my family.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The sincere dedication of the volunteers to make Glen Eden as positive an experience as possible.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

From all walks of life.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Improve the housing facilities and the chapel, pave the road (currently gravel), set up better security measures for its guests.

Spent weeks at this Youth Center as a child and teenager. Now I help to maintain the buildings and grounds as a volunteer and board member to continue to make the center available to other youth that want to attend. Many young people have accepted Christ into their lives because of the opportunity given them to attend camps at the Glen Eden Youth Center.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The great difference it makes in young people's lives.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue the work that has been done in the past and continue to improve the facility as funds become available. A large number of regular donators to Glen Eden have gone to Heaven and are sorely missed.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The overall experience of enjoying nature and being in touch with God in his beautiful world, and the joy the children receive by experiencing the camp.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Caring, kind, giving and truely glad to be doing the work of the Lord by providing the camp.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Soar like an eagle. Funds are the limiting factor as to what gets accomplished in this area of Kentucky.

Ways to make it better...

The Glen Eden Youth Center would have had the funds to hold more camps to influence more youth to be productive in the Lord's work.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The distance from where we live to the camp is the greatest challege in the upkeep of buildings and grounds. This also contributes to security of those building and grounds.

One thing I'd also say is that...

We have a lot of problems in the United States. War, Drugs, Economy, Unemployment, etc. but the greatest problem is in our youth. They need the teachings of Jesus and the guidance to make the right decisions with their lives because they are the FUTURE of our country.
