Park Springs Christian Camp (run by Piedmont Christian Assembly) is a model for other camps. As with most non-profits, Park Springs operates on a very tight budget, but gets maximum impact. In the last few years every building on campus has been updated and a renewed focus has been brought to providing scholarships for those that need them and dedicating resources to develop leaders. Hundreds of campers a year experience a week away from all the distractions of life to form memories and friendships that last a lifetime because of the great core of volunteers and the dedicated donors that make it all possible.

Park Springs Christian camp has been apart of our children’s lives since they were old enough to attend buddy camp! Our kids are now 13,15, and 17 years old. Not only were they campers, but now desire to serve in the roles of junior counselors and counselors. Our family has attended as campers and served at camp for 10 years. Our time there has been very fulfilling and spiritually uplifting. As parents, it is very rewarding to see your children in leadership roles for Christ which this camp was an avenue for them to have those opportunities. Park Springs Christian Camp and Retreat Center allows kids and adults to soak up God’s creation with the natural backdrop of wooded acreage and water while learning about Jesus and growing closer to Him.
Tim Powell and his wife Sheri oversee the camp and all the logistics. They have done an outstanding job caring for the grounds and reaching out to and utilizing supporting churches to further the upkeep of the facility so that the camp can continue to support the work in children’s lives to further God’s kingdom. We have been blessed by our time there and pray that so many other families get to share in experiences like our family has.

Park Springs is an amazing place where students and adults alike can have fun, enjoy incredible fellowship, and discover more about the God who loves them. In my nine summers going to the camp, it has always been wonderfully maintained by the director. The camp is supported by many area churches who want to see the camp thrive and change lives for the Kingdom of God. Check out Park Springs to disconnect from the world and recharge with the Father.

I started as a camper back in the mid nineties and then began serving the camp as a junior counselor, a camp dean, and now serve on the camp board. My life is touched every time I step fort on campus and have seen God do amazing things at Park Springs.

I have taken kids to this camp for years and now my kids go and they say that Park Springs in their "happy place". They can't wait to go each year. I noticed upgrades last year and I hear more are expected this upcoming summer. I can't wait to see what my kids get to enjoy this year.

I went to Park Springs in high school and it made such an impact on my life that now my own kids have been campers since they were old enough to attend! They call it “their happy place” and it’s the highlight of their summer.

My group had a great time at Park Springs! Tim and Sheri were extremely gracious hosts and even made some changes for us upon arrival to help us have the best experience possible for our retreat. They were also flexible and willing to shift schedules to make sure we were able to enjoy everything we wanted when weather interrupted our original plans. This is a wonderful camp with lots of charm and class!

I was a camper at Park Spring Christian Camp for 14 years and I LOVED every moment! I loved PS so much that I volunteered for 2 summer as a kitchen helper and after those 2 years I became paid summer staff for two additional years! Now I have two of my own children attending PS and a husband that attends 3 weeks of camp as a counselor! As an adult I have been a part of MANY retreats, PS functions and I have been on the camp board for 2 terms. I LOVE PARK SPRINGS and I am thankful that I have had many opportunities to see lives changed and transformed because of PARK SPRINGS!!!!! To God be the GLORY!

This camp changed the lives of the students I serve. They were brought closer to God, experienced the love of God through the awesome staff, and brought a number of great stories home to share with their family and friends.

Piedmont Christian Assembly continues to impact lives in a positive way through Park Springs Christian Camp. They not only provide fun and adventure for students during the summer, but there is also the year-round availability for group retreats for a few days to get away from the busyness of life and be surrounded by the beauty that is nature. The biggest impact I personally have noticed is the way summer camps transform the lives of so many students. A week of camp at Park Springs is full of opportunities for learning and growth. There are students who come to camp year after year, with it being the highlight of their summer, and I believe that is a testament to the greatness of Park Springs. It is important for students to have programs that build firm foundations that cause them to grow up and seek to make positive impacts with their own lives, and Park Springs provides just that.

Park Springs Christian Camp is in the business of changing lives. Park Springs has spent countless hours on being the best camp that they can be. The camp has updated all the buildings in the last few years, they've added a new pool, and they've re-done there gym so it can be used for multiple purposes. Most of this work was done by volunteers who have experienced camp either as an adult or as a child and knows the value of making Park Springs the best that it can be. Park Springs makes a difference in so many lives and they accomplish that by putting God first in all that they do.
