CAMP GRIER’S VISION
Camp Grier is a year around outdoor adventure ministry of the Presbyterian Church USA.
BRIEF HISTORY OF HOW CAMP GRIER GOT STARTED AND WHY IT EXISTS
Camp Grier was started in 1952 to create a space apart where people can connect with the Holy Spirit and each other. We believe that outdoor ministry is a powerful tool to connect people to the Body of Christ and help people grow in their Faith.
