Our number one goal is to bring everyone that comes to Eagle Sky, closer to God. Everything at ESO is designed to point guests back to the message of Jesus Christ. For over ten years, Eagle Sky has been preparing for camp. Settled on 5,000 acres near beautiful Piedmont, Mo, the land sets the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable summer experience. Our staff is committed to providing the very best experience possible to each visitor who walks through our gates. Our main focus is sharing the love of Christ with kids, youth, and guests from all over the world. We believe you are never too young or too old to hear the message of Christ.

What is a Christian Challenge Camp?

Our fully programmed camp sessions are designed to help each camper grow to reach their highest potential, we believe this is best achieved by challenging each camper to step outside their comfort zone in three main areas. Each of our activities and programs has been specifically created to challenge the campers in a spiritual, mental, or physical way, all within a safe and encouraging environment.
