Meet the Directors

 Camp DirectorsIMG_0025

Dear Friend,

My name is Walter Chastain. My wife Sherry and I are the director of LaVerne Griffin Youth Recreation Camp.  After 13 years at the camp, we are still excited to see what God is doing here at the camp, in our lives and in the lives of those we meet and serve with!

This camp is a special place. It is in a beautiful setting situated on 58 acres of spruce- and birch-covered forest and joins the 125-acre Lake Kalmbach. We have the occasional moose wander through the camp, along with regular visits from eagles. In the summer our family of loons return to patrol the lake. God’s presence certainly abounds here!

We want to invite you to join us at the camp. We offer full-service and self-service use of the facilities year-round for individuals, families, and groups. During the summer we host several camps  for kids and youth. We also have multiple opportunities for mission teams to serve at the camp. We can be your home away from home while you are in the area on mission.

Visit and leave the stress and pressures of everyday life behind! We know that you will find  LaVerne Griffin Youth Recreation Camp to be a place where God’s presence is found, and that it is much more than a youth camp!

In Christ,
Walter Chastain
