General Fund gifts help support the mission of Mt. Gilead. Operation expenses include the daily costs of running the camp: food, utilities, staff salaries, insurance, maintenance and vehicles.
Having quality staff housing is one of the best ways for Mt. Gilead to combat labor shortages. When we offer housing to new staff, it often makes it possible for them to serve here. A number of staff houses are in need or repair.
Sharing the transforming hope of Jesus Christ through a camp experience is the heartbeat of Mt. Gilead. Financial assistance through our Campership Fund is a necessity for some of our campers.
Mt. Gilead staff members serve with a passion for ministry. Staff members often receive less income than they could earn elsewhere. Your gift designated to a staff member supports their ministry at Mt. Gilead.
With 238 acres of land there are endless ways we can enhance the ministry of Mt. Gilead. The Capitol Projects Fund provides resources for large and costly projects like cabin renovation of 31 cabins.
WAYS TO HELP
There are many ways to be involved in what God is doing here at Mt. Gilead, including: volunteering your time, providing expertise in a specific area (landscaping, interior design, and photography, carpentry, mechanics, just to name a few) or helping us with financial assistance.

Cabin Area Renovation
Currently, we are insulating the ceilings and beginning the interior update...one cabin at a time. All of the new bunks have arrived and three cabins are completed and two more underway!
We were blessed with funds to complete a much needed makeover of the Fireside Room - freshly painted walls, beautiful flooring, a new HVAC system and a foosball table.
