My Family and I are excited to be part of the Heit's Point Ministry team. We bring with us a love for teaching kids about Jesus and an enjoyment of the outdoors. We are so excited to live in 163 acers pristine woodland that is  located on 3/4 of a mile of lakefront on the Lake of the Ozarks. We look forward to seeing you in Heit's Point RV park, hosting your family reunions in our Retreat Center, providing a place for you church events in our bunk houses, and seeing you at Summer Camp! 

May the Lord bless you and keep you on this day and always.

I first came to Heit’s Point as a camper when I was 10, and then came back as a camper and then JC for 4 more years. When I turned 16 I started working in the kitchen, and am now the Kitchen Manager and Front Office Administrator. I love writing, drawing, and taking walks around the camp, and I’m almost always listening to music. This is my first job, but I plan to stick around for a while. See you at your next event!

Hi, I’m Christina! My friends call me Anna. I have been coming to the Heits Point Summer camp since I was 7 years old and I started working at Heits Point year round last summer. I love to be in nature, swimming in the lake or pool, and doing art, especially with my makeup and style. I have made many friends not only working but attending the camp as well. I’m looking forward to seeing what my future with this camp holds!
