SAYING GOODYBE TO AN AMAZING COUPLE
Over 18 years ago Chuck and Cindy Vincent felt a call to serve full time at Camp Cascade. They quit their jobs and sold everything they had to move to Donnelly and manage the camp. When they began there was almost no salary, a small apartment, and a lot of work to accomplish with very few resources. There is no question that Camp Cascade could not be what it is today without their hard work and dedication. Over 10,000 adults, youth, and children have been blessed by their service. Words cannot fully express our gratitude and appreciation for their sacrifice and years of service. We will miss their smiling faces, laughter, amazing food, and their servant’s hearts.
Although they are “retiring” and moving to Salem Oregon, Chuck will be working with their son DJ in his Church at the Park ministry. No doubt Cindy will be serving in a variety of ways as well!
They will be joining us on October 24th during our morning services and hanging out in the lobby. Please take this opportunity to express your love and appreciation as they move on to the next chapter in their lives.
If you cannot be here but want to express your appreciation, you can mail a card, drop it by the office or email a note

Thank you for your interest in Camp Cascade.
We are currently in the process of a significant change at Camp Cascade. Chuck and Cindy Vincent, who have managed the camp for 18 years, are retiring. We are so grateful to them for their many years of ministry at Camp Cascade and their heart to serve others. They will be greatly missed, but we are happy for the opportunity that God has provided them, and we wish them happiness as they move on.
As a result, we will not be able to host camps for the remainder of 2021 and winter/spring of 2022. We are actively pursuing new managers and are hopeful that we can be back up and running for the summer season. Our desire is to have new managers in place no later than April 2022. This is a unique role and ideally needs a couple who have the gifts and abilities as well as the desire to do ministry in this way. If you know of someone that might be interested in learning more about this opportunity, please have them contact us.
If you did not know, Camp Cascade is owned and operated by Deer Flat Church in Caldwell. We will continue with the care and maintenance of the camp during this time. We will not be accepting camp requests until after we have successfully hired new managers. Please check back for updates at the beginning of the year.
Thank you for your ongoing support of Camp Cascade. We hope to see you again in 2022.
