Mission Statement
To inspire Christ-like change through: Outdoor Adventure, Authentic Relationships and
Biblical Truth

The makeup of our community determines a large part of what it is like to live and work here.
We have about 80 people who live on-site year round, comprised of: full-time staff, their
families, gap-year students, and interns. Since we are so far from any large towns or cities, all of
our full-time staff live on-site. One example of our distance from town is that it takes 1 hour and
15 minutes to get to the closest Walmart in Kerrville. Camp Eagle is a beautiful place with many
natural resources but calls for somewhat remote living. Our staff is fairly active and involved
within our community and ministry. Generally we like good food, playing outdoors, working hard
as we are very passionate about our mission statement. We encourage applicants, at a further
stage in the hiring process, to visit and ask many questions from various staff about what it is
like to live and work here. Camp Eagle recently went through a fast growth period and is
seeking to be excellent in all we do and become a leader in our industry. However, just like each
of us, we have many shortcomings but hope to use even those to serve Jesus Christ. Does that
sound like something you want to do?

We Believe
? The Bible is God's written revelation to man; and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative
and without error in the original manuscript.
? Jesus Christ is God's Son, born of a virgin. His sinless life, miracles, death on the cross
to provide for the redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, present
ministry of intercession for all who believe, and his return in power and glory.
? God's Holy Spirit performs the miracle of new birth in an unbeliever and indwells
believers, enabling them to live a godly life.
? Man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, was alienated from God. Only
through faith in Christ alone for salvation, which was made possible by His death and
resurrection, can that alienation be removed and eternal life secured.
