One night in 1972, Charles Kendrick-Holmes was thinking about some land he and his wife, Barbara, owned in Alabama. He was a pharmacist, but he felt the Lord leading him to do something else. Then it hit him. A camp. Why not use our land for a camp?
Meanwhile, Barbara was out of town on a retreat. She met a man who had a camp and she asked him many questions. Then it hit her. A camp. Why not use our land for a camp? A few days later, Charles met Barbara at the bus station.
