Download "On This Holy Ground" on iTunes

Written and recorded as a tribute to Camp Paradise, this song not only encompasses the heart and soul of Camp, it declares God’s hand on it all. With lyrics like “There’s no other place where the stars outshine the sun” and “You met us here, You calmed our fears”, it is a honest compilation of the affect Camp Paradise has had on their family and many others.
