Eagle’s Wings Camp is a Christian Center in Ergli, Latvia that Brings People Together for Faith, Friendship and Fun.

Faith…Friendship…Fun

For hundreds of kids throughout Latvia, Eagle’s Wings Camp and Summer vacation are synonymous terms. It is simply the place to be.  While the summer camps are wildly popular, the facility is used year around for retreats and various gatherings of all ages.  Eagle’s Wings Camp is a place of faith, friendship and fun.  It is a community where both young and old experience God’s love, have a great time and do life together.

A Brief History – 2002-2014

Eagle’s Wings Camp became a legal Latvian charity in 2002.  The camp property was purchased in March 2003 and soon after camping in tents began. Since then, two camp houses have been built (32 beds, kitchen, dining hall and conference room) that have run camps of up to 100 people. Two houses have been built for full-time staff, a workshop, a sawmill  and two containers have been acquired full of building materials and activity equipment. A 2.5 acre lake was developed for swimming, boating and ice skating. A ropes course has been developed and a sauna cabin built.

In 2008, a sheep farm was started in hopes of providing long-term financial sustainability for the camp. Currently under construction is a new multipurpose main lodge. You can read more about it.
