"Linked by Love"

We see God’s love in close friends and family. Through the life and example of Jesus Christ, we will explore what the Bible says about how the love of God changes us and helps us to be His disciples who bring wholeness to a broken world.

We know that such love links our lives, teaching us about commitment, intimacy, grace, and faith. As we seek to create and strengthen life giving relationships, we remember that such love flows from God, links us all together, and we give thanks.


Brochures and posters for you to download and print will be available in January. Make copies to pass on to family and friends. Place prominently on bulletin boards

Camp Scholarships

Want to go to camp, but it doesn’t quite fit in the budget this summer? We have scholarships for that! Everyone should have the opportunity to experience Camp Crystal.

Camp scholarships are an important part of the Christian Education budgets of many congregations.  They stimulate greater camp participation and make Camp Crystal affordable for those who may otherwise not be able to attend.  We encourage you to talk with your church to find out if they offer scholarships and sign up today!

In addition to church scholarships, there are scholarships available from the Fuller Camp & Central Christian Scholarship Funds, available for ANY child or youth who needs assistance to attend Crystal.

For more information, or to request a scholarship application:

ALL APPLICATIONS requesting a scholarship must be returned by MARCH 1, 2024

Volunteer Counseling

There are a limited number of counselor opportunities available at camp this summer.  All counselors and counselors in training must go through a background check and sessions of training in order to work with children at Crystal Conference Center. Counseling gives you the opportunity to develop as a leader and grow spiritually while reaching children about Christ. If you are interested in being a camp counselor or counselor in training, contact Rev. Jill Forton, Crystal Commission Program Coordinator.

Work Weekends

Work weekends each spring are critical to us having the conference center grounds ready for our campers and retreats. Volunteers help open buildings and clean up grounds for the summer season. Please join us for all or part of Spring Work Weekends each year. Or help out closing the camp at the end of September. Reconnect with camp friends, celebrate all things Crystal, be part of the gifts of Outdoor Ministries. Food and lodging provided. We also welcome church groups who make it both a church retreat and work weekend at other times in May. Contact Eric Strommer, Site Director for more information.
