About Us

logo_100x100CWAC is a faith based 501(c)3 non-profit camp for young men, young women, and families.

Our goal for the ministry is to help pave the way to a Christ centered life and to build a solid foundation that our children and families can build upon. This is accomplished through our outdoor ministry by teaching, team building exercises, hunting, fishing, camping, archery, bush crafting, canoeing and mentoring. We are currently working with local churches, national organizations like Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Scouts, American Heritage Girls, Trail Life USA and local/foreign missionaries. We also work with Local Courts and Juvenile intakes to reach as many young men and women as possible. If you have any further questions or are interested in working with our ministry, please contact us!

Mission – Our mission is to provide biblical teaching through outdoor activities to support families in raising up courageous and Godly children. We seek to introduce young people to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The focus of the ministry is to teach families about Christ through the outdoors. Our vision is to call upon and create Godly warriors! We are to help transform young men and women by becoming Godly role models. It’s time for us to wake up from the slumber that consumes us. It is time to take on the battle and to use the sword of the spirit, the word of God. We help families establish a solid Christian foundation they can stand upon and put on the full armor of God! (Eph6:10-20)
