Since its founding by Gary Colvin in 1983, Discovery Ministries has undergone the transformation from a bare-bones campground facility to a fully functioning retreat center. With three lodges, a cabin, a large open-air pavilion and multiple challenge elements, we’ve come a long way, providing the best Christian adventure retreat options in the region. Through the journey the camp has been guided by four different directors, scores of Godly staff and many interns, all with the mission of using DM to glorify God through our challenge activities. Though we’ve expanded our demographic from working with youth and young adults to also ministering to missionaries, men’s groups, and academic institutions, our mission remains the same: We seek to glorify God through challenge-based ministry.
