In 1965 the vision was seen and in 1968 the site was purchased. There was a threefold purpose for the land site:
1. Develop a children’s/young people’s recreational camp in order to bring them under the gospel ministry.
2. Establish senior citizen’s condominiums providing care and the fellowship of spiritual community for their latter years.
3. Establish a conference centre.
a)To provide a setting in nature for all groups of people to experience a meaningful encounter with God through times of recreation, reflection, worship and service.
b) To offer camp programs which take into account the spiritual, physical, social, emotional, and educational needs of children, adults, and families.
c) To promote retreats nurturing Christian discipleship and personal growth.
d) To promote respect for the natural environment through modeling, and training for appropriate lifestyle decisions.
