Julian Oaks is a Christian camp which ministers to children who have been removed from their homes for reasons of abuse or neglect. With the help of many volunteer counselors, children between the ages of 9-18, who desperately need love and hope are touched by Jesus. They are invited to come to camp for a week in the summer, a weekend in the winter, and attend other gatherings throughout the year.
Developing relationships is key to the long term success of the camp program. In the summer we maintain a ratio are 2 children per counselor and only 20 children per week. In the winter months there are 12 children , with 1 child per counselor. Campers are invited back every year until they graduate from High School. Many return to serve as Junior Counselors!
Julian Oaks offers activities including hiking, music & drama opportunities, crafts, swimming, games, worship, bible studies and most importantly, an opportunity for the healing of deep emotional wounds. This healing comes through the love of Jesus Christ that is shared with the children by the counselors & staff throughout their stay and beyond, with opportunities to reunite and be encouraged throughout the year.
