The Story

The Lord is at Work

Since 1956, Fort is a place where families, youth, staff, and volunteers experience God in His creation, live and grow through His Word and enjoy camp programs and adventure while developing relationships that often span decades. Friendships and community are found here.

Generations of staff, volunteers, and campers have witnessed countless professions of faith, saved marriages, renewed commitment to follow Him more closely, baptisms, and life-changing stories all with the common thread of “the Lord worked through my time at Fort.” Lives are impacted for eternity.

The need for camp - a place to meet Jesus - is evident
Fort impacts the next generation

For the Future Generations

Now, in this specific time in history, in our culture, in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, the Lord is leading Fort to continue and amplify this impact for God’s glory, not only for this generation but for the next – your children and grandchildren.

Yet, Fort’s main campus has many aging and inadequate facilities, which, unless addressed, will limit the future influence on the next generation.

The Call

Together with the Fort Family and all who desire to share in what God is doing through Fort, we are raising the final 20% to reach the overall $9.6M goal. The projects funded by this goal will prepare Fort for decades of fruit-bearing impact.

You are invited to consider making a sacrificial gift to help Fort meet this need for Phase 1 of the Fort Future. Will you partner with others to raise these additional funds?

Progress is already happening

Two-Thirds of the Way There

The Fort Staff, Board of Directors, and the Fort Family have provided nearly $8 Million toward the $9.6 Million goal.

We have completed four critical projects and efforts are underway with several others given the funds raised. We need your help to raise the necessary gifts and pledges to complete the remaining projects without interruption.

Stewardship Matters

Fort operates with a no-debt policy – project commitments are made once funds are secured. This stewardship of resources is in line with Luke 14:28-30:

“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’”

Fort desires to continue to operate with a no-debt policy not only with normal operating costs, but also special campaigns like the Fort Future.

Only after money is secured, does the work begin
Prayer has been and continues to lead the way
