Our history

Faith, endurance, courage, and confidence

Young Ruth McIntyre stood out in the middle of frozen Lake Chateaugay on snowshoes, took in the panoramic mountain view around her and, smiling, turned to her mother and said, “This is it. This is where I want my camp to be.”

camp Testimonials

As the directors, Randy and Sandy don’t have to know who my kids are, but they do.

Let me start by saying that I am not the kind of person who normally writes this type of letter. I don’t normally put my seal of approval or endorsement on any product or service. However, over the last few years of my two daughters attending camp I have been thoroughly impressed by just how much Randy, Sandy and all of their staff care about the kids. As the directors, Randy and Sandy don’t have to know who my kids are, but they do. And I’ve seen and heard years of evidence that they know all their campers by name and take an active interest in all of them. Jeanne D’arc campers are lifers. It is an experience like no other for the campers. I would recommend them to any family.
