Camper Stories

Every camper that comes to Portage Lake has a story, and one amazing aspect of the camp experience is seeing how their unique circumstances can lead to an encounter with God while they are at camp. Each summer, we sit down with campers who had a life-changing moment at camp to hear about their lives and how Christ impacted them during their camp experience, and as we get closer to summer 2018, we will be sharing more and more of those stories! Check out the videos below to hear more about how Jesus changes lives at Portage Lake!
