REFINE. RECOVER. RESTORE.
The Restore Campaign
From the early days of New Life Ranch, Flint Creek and the waterfront have been the central recreational and activity centers for the camp. That remains true today, 63 years later. It is the primary hub of activity year round for swimming, canoeing, fishing and one of the most endearing, distinguishing features for the ministry. We see the importance of the waterfront running much deeper than fun and sentimental attachment, it’s mission critical. It is important to what we do at New Life Ranch and a cornerstone of the New Life Ranch - Flint Valley experience.
With all that in mind, due to recurring floods, encroaching gravel deposits and recurring damage to the infrastructure used to control the water level in the swim and recreation areas, the waterfront is at severe risk. We have received permission and guidance from the Grand River Dam Authority to repair the dam and adjoining spillway.
