KrislundKrislund Camp and Conference Center, located in Madisonburg, PA (near State College), is making plans for its summer of 2018 Mission Outreach Program. This is an opportunity for groups to come to Central Pennsylvania in mission to help repair and improve the homes of needy neighbors while lodging comfortably in the lodges of Krislund and using its camp for recreation, fellowship and worship. Working as the hands and feet of Christ, groups of all types (ages, skills and talents) can grow in faith, fun and service.

The beautiful ridges and valleys of Central PA create the stunning views of woodlands and farms and yet hide the many homes of neighbors and friends who live below the poverty line and are in need of repairs. It is the camp’s mission to minister to these folk by providing teams to assist in the tasks of painting, landscaping, installing ramps, removing trip hazards, etc. Krislund will be partnering with other local churches and social services to identify those the camp can help most and to match the need with the skills and abilities of volunteer groups. And Krislund will be providing those teams with pleasant comfortable surroundings and good meals.

Read and print a brochure here and give it to any group you feel may be interested in creating a mission trip in June. Also check out the Krislund website here to learn more about us.
