The Power of The Cross

Taking time to reflect after Easter has gone

The Power of The Cross

During this time of year it's important to reflect on the goodness of God and His love, and it's very easy to do this during the Easter holiday.  However after the day has gone, after the children have endulged in chocolate bunnies, and everyone is back to 'normal life', do we just forget then about this very special season?

Many times in life we just need to stop and realize this fact. We need less of ourselves and more of the "Cross"! Today and for the whole season may we be reminded of 3 simple facts about...     Continue Reading | Leave Comment

Summer Internship at Lake Williamson

We're looking for the right person to join the Eagle Crest team!

What has surprised me most is when individuals from as far away as New Hampshire, Florida, and Texas contact me and say that Eagle Crest Adventures is being talked about at their regional conferences and in their universities.

Each summer Eagle Crest Adventures provides internships to one or two individuals. Most of these interns have aspirations to work fulltime in conference and camp services. Many have a des...     Continue Reading | Leave Comment
