Equipping youth and families for lives of reconciliation in God’s world.

Dear friends and family of Tall Turf Ministries,

Since 1969, we have impacted the lives of over 10,000 youth and families. We uniquely understand the importance of camp and the services we provide. This was done with health initiatives held to the highest degree. Considering the uncertainties currently surrounding us, and the Governor's Executive Order, we have suspended the 2020 onsite summer camp program in lieu of offsite alternatives.


Tall Turf Ministries is currently working on partnerships with our community that will help live out our mission. We start this process with prayer asking how God will be glorified during this process. Though traditional camp is not a possibility, other opportunities such as morning/evening devotions, arts and crafts, outside activities, and other camp experiences are being developed. We will remain in compliance with all safety guidelines.


Though it pains us to make this change, we remain committed to equipping youth and families for lives of reconciliation in God's world for our 52nd year in service.


Please visit our "Camp to Go" page to register for the 2020 summer program alternative available in conjunction with Neland Church.

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9


"All of this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us to the gift of reconciliation.”      2 Corinthians 5:18                            


The Tall Turf family consists of people that come from all walks of life.
We come in different sizes and colors, with different experiences and worldviews. 
We are united by the shared belief that we are made in the image of God, and through that we all have value. By approaching community this way, we have begun to discover that we can accomplish infinitely more than we ever could on our own. 


Our community is committed to collectively learning to identify what barriers prevent people from knowing their own worth, and then applying ourselves to dismantle systems that perpetuate those beliefs.
