Serving the Cedar Point Community since 2011.
Just a few miles south of New Life Camp, there is a growing community at Cedar Point Apartments, a door to the nations of the world. Many families have come from all over to reside in this place. We count it a privilege to serve this community with the love of Christ by assisting the children especially in their education and their individual relationships with Christ. Our programs are open to all residents of the Cedar Point community.
CPCO exists to love refugee families by providing opportunities for physical, educational, and spiritual growth in a way that respects the dignity of all people, to the ultimate end of sharing the Good News and raising up mature followers of Jesus Christ.

Cedar Point Community Outreach connects students who attend our programs to a number of New Life Camp activites. This past year, many students attended Saturday Nights at Camp (SN@C), day camps and overnight camps, and Next Level Basketball. Several have served in New Life Camp's Leaders-In-Training (LIT) program. All participating students contibute financially toward these opportunities. The New Life Camp Campership Fund has provided scholarships for many Cedar Point kids.
A seven-week program aimed at helping students maintain or improve English reading proficiency over the summer. Students are given an opportunity to read three days a week with a tutor. Students who read all three times in a week "earn" a swim time at New Life Camp or on-site party. Learn More Here.
A two-day per week preschool class is offered to 4 years olds in the community on Tuesday and Thursday mornings during the school year. A one-day per week program is available for 3 year olds on Wednesday mornings. Students are exposed to language, literacy, math, and general classroom procedures that better prepare them to enter kindergarten. Many of our preschool graduates have ended kindergarten on grade level.
Four on-site Bible Studies occur weekly at Cedar Point. Middle and High School boys and girls meet in separate studies on Friday nights. An Elementary School aged Girls' Club meets on Saturdays. Each group studies books of the Bible with a focus on sharing the gospel and discipling believers.
We work with area schools to support Cedar Point families with the educational process. This includes assisting families with the enrollment process for new kindergartners, facilitating parent/teacher conferences, assisting with paperwork, communicating student needs with the schools and being involved in extracurricular activies. We also assist students graduating from high school with the application process to college.
