With planned camps in Missouri, Colorado, and Kenya Africa, Eagle Sky is on track to be one of the premiere summer camps in the world. Schultz Surveying & Engineering were honored to be selected to develop the entire design for Eagle Sky Drive, the main road into this rejuvenating paradise. They will also be putting their water and wastewater design experience to work making sure Eagle Sky provides campers the clean, safe drinking water while having a minimal impact on the pristine environment of the Ozark foothills.
Eagle Sky has many activities designed specifically for its array of campers. “We will have many water sports such as lake canoeing, kayaking, water volleyball, etc,” stated Eagle Sky Camp Director, Jim Garr. “For those who enjoy staying on land we also have a sports complex for soccer, baseball, basketball, hiking trails, high-ropes, paintball and other land-based activities.”
While Eagle Sky is a first-rate multimillion dollar camp complex, a difference that separates Eagle Sky from many other similar facilities is its vision to reach the world through the teachings of Jesus Christ. Some of the core values of Eagle Sky include:
- Christ-like work ethic: with every thought, word, and deed
- Personal integrity: in both public and private life
- Stewardship: of the Lord's resources in the environment, in the facilities, and in staff and finances
- Safety and Security: providing a program and facilities that focus on safety and security for all participants
Camp Director Jim Garr added, “We are truly committed to the values and teachings of Christ and everything about this facility is designed to enhance the campers ability to leave the daily grind of life behind and have fun while growing in their faith.”

With 4,500 acres of property and a 130 acre lake area, Eagle Sky is bound to grow at a fast rate when more people hear about this unique experience right here in the heartland of Missouri. SSE owner, Stan Schultz, stated “I became an engineer because I wanted to design projects that would improve people’s lives. Roads, bridges and water systems are all projects that I have been proud to be a part of but working with Eagle Sky to design the infrastructure to make the multimillion dollar facility the best it can be is different than a normal project. These facilities will help the campers have an enjoyable stay while they are at Eagle Sky, but the impact they will have on other lives after they leave here can impact and change lives for years to come.”
The Eagle Sky Foundation's Mission is to provide a unique retreat environment where everyone is challenged to grow in their faith and relationship with Jesus Christ.
- Providing quality facilities where guests can retreat in comfort and security while they focus on expanding their faith and relationship with Jesus Christ;
- Utilizing dedicated, talented staff who demonstrate servant leadership and total commitment to Jesus Christ;
- Involving guests in challenging Christian Campaign Programs which strive for quality and excellence in recreational opportunities, ministry development programs; educational programs, and quality Bible teaching;
- Leading guests to engage the beauty of God's creation, the joy of fellowship, and the challenge of growth in their faith and walk with Jesus Christ.
Eagle Sky is planning to open its facilities with more than 1,000 bunks. Eagle Sky has come to the Missouri Ozarks with a vision to build and operate the finest camping and retreat facilities available for utilization by church groups, Christian organizations and businesses. It is their hope that children of all ages and families from around the country will be able to make memories that will last a lifetime, while building a stronger relationship with Christ and learning how to live more in His favor.
