This organization has been ministering to mentally challenged adults, ages 18 years old and older for 30 years. Briefly, it was started when citizens of group homes attending churches in the Palestine area questioned why they had never been invited to camp. From that spoken need the camp was organized by the then Palestine District Superintendent, Dr. Williamson, the chairperson of small membership churches, Mrs. Marjorie Jordan, and the pastor of LaRue UMC, Rev. Steve Goad. In 1994, William Newcomb was asked to help for just one camp. He states, I was hooked. It's been a God thing ever since.
