Founder’s Story

"If you could do anything, what would you do?…"

That’s the question that I (Nicole) asked Kevin in 2013. Without blinking he said, “I’d start a youth camp.” It was in this moment that the dream of Camp Refuge was planted in our hearts, but we wondered if these were the visions of lofty dreamers. We had the heart. We had the passion. But were we called?

3 years later the call was received loud and clear when a man prophetically spoke over Kevin, “The Lord has given you a vision. Go for it. Because the vision is big. It is beyond you. The Lord says, ‘I’m with you on it! Go for it! Don’t waver in that vision and you will see the fruit and results of it.’”

It was in this moment that we began to run towards the vision. Each step in this journey has felt like we were cliff-jumping, but the Lord has caught us each and every time. We are in awe of His faithfulness and miraculous provision. The Lord has left us no room to doubt that He is indeed “with us on it."

Camp Refuge has become more than the simple youth camp we had originally envisioned, but the mission remains true . . . we believe in “radical transformation of relationships.”  Let’s go deep together.  Join us as we climb this mountain in pursuit of the Lord’s presence!


Each year we are in awe of all the Lord has done!
