Speaking of food, don’t forget about all the tasty treats offered in the Snack Shop! Here at Streamside, we firmly believe that one of the ways that God shows Himself to us is through the world around us - our families, our friends, and through His creation. Streamside’s Nature Center provides a controlled environment that allows campers a safe and hands-on experience with critters of all kinds. From exotic frogs, turtles, and snakes, to raccoons, ‘possum, and perhaps even an alligator, each camper will be able to experience God’s creation up close and personal.

To lead the way, a diverse staff of mature believers come from all over the world representing many backgrounds and cultures. Our common desire is for campers to begin an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and to commit to living transformed lives. We believe it is essential to have a well-trained staff who are attentive to the needs and safety of each camper. Our staff and volunteers must complete an extensive application process along with background screening before serving at Streamside. Certified medical personnel and lifeguards are always on duty and secondary accident insurance is carried for all campers. With several camp dates to choose from, there is no need for anyone to miss out on a great time this summer. Between free time at the pool, boating pond, or snack shop, morning activities, evening Vespers, and a camp wide secret mission, there is never a dull moment! Whether climbing the mountain or making new friends on the basketball court, Kids Camp is the place to be! Streamside has four one-week encampment dates available for kids 8 to 12-years-old. Each encampment begins on a Monday afternoon and ends the following Saturday morning.Monroe*Main Site (Streamside Camp & Conference Center)Streamside Camp and Conference Center

Morning Star Ministries - Maternity HomeMorning Star supplies housing and related services to teens and young women facing crisis pregnancies. The need for safe housing in a loving, nurturing environment is crucial to someone who is struggling with an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy. We have found that if given the hope we endeavor to provide, young women are less likely to turn to an abortion as a solution to their crisis. We offer care that begins when the resident arrives and ends when she and her baby have a safe environment in which to return. We not only provide housing, but also help with other needs relating to unplanned pregnancy such as keeping up with education, the coordination of medical care, teaching of life and parenting skills, counseling, etc. As you consider options and how to address the many issues and how they will change your life, you will speak with caring people who are experienced and can offer options for your consideration. In addition to housing and basic needs, the services provided at Morningstar include: - Parenting classes - Birthing classes - Various life skills classes - Assistance with doctor appointments - Help with obtaining medical assistance - Enrollment in the local school district - Earning a GED - Finding employment - Researching suitable housingMontgomeryMorning Star - Montgomery; LansdaleMorning Star Ministries

YoungLives - Support for Teen MomsTeen moms face many challenges because they are truly living in two worlds. They have a desire to be a teenager, yet they have all the responsibilities required of motherhood. They feel alone, and often are abandoned by the significant people in their lives once their child is born. The world sees a teen mom and her child. We see a girl who needs Jesus. YoungLives is about loving teen moms in the midst of the circumstances they're in - no matter what they are. Because we've experienced mercy, compassion and grace through a relationship with Christ, we desire to love teen moms in the condition they come to us.
