Camp Roger’s Vision 2025 – You Belong Here


Camp Roger has some exciting information about our new Vision 2025. As an important stakeholder – former camper, staff member, donor, or friend of Camp – we know you care deeply about Camp Roger and Camp Scottie. Camp is changing and growing, and we want you to know about it. 

As Camp Roger strategizes and grows, we must keep our core mission and long-range vision in site, using them as a tether to not drift away from God’s good work at Camp. Camp’s heart and mission have not changed since the early days of our camp. The mission is who we are and what frames our everyday work.

Vision 2025 expands our mission into a proactive culture of belonging and accessibility.

Faith & Life Covenant

As a diverse group of Christians, we seek to find our center in Christ for the purpose of serving God together at Camp. We won’t get it perfect. Sometimes we won’t get it right. We’re all on a spiritual journey. But we believe that Christ is the one redeeming the world, and he has invited us to be his fellow workers through his Spirit.

We believe that Christians share some core beliefs and convictions:

  • First, that there is one true God who is made known to his creation through the persons of the Trinity: The Father who created us, Jesus Christ the Son who died for us, and the Holy Spirit who guides us.
  • Second, that the Bible is the true and inspired Word of God, revealing God’s character and redemptive story to his creation.
  • Third, that God’s worldwide church, which includes all Christians, has been called and equipped to co-labor with Christ in building the kingdom on earth.
