Summer 2017 Newsletter

There is something powerful about spending a week at summer camp.

If you ever went to camp as a kid, you know exactly what I mean. You probably remember that initial uneasy feeling of being in an unfamiliar environment. But you most likely ended up having a great time, making new friends, trying new things, and learning some important truths that would help shape your future. You gained a little bit of independence and self-confidence. Maybe you even accepted Christ at summer camp.

This summer, hundreds of hurting boys and girls will get to step away from their difficult circumstances and come to a safe, fun, and loving environment. They'll discover new ideas and learn that Jesus loves them. And they'll have this experience free of charge, because friends like you make it possible for us to provide a camp scholarship for each disadvantaged child who attends our programs.

Your gifts, prayers, and volunteer hours will change lives this summer. Thank you for your ministry partnership!

"The camp gives him the ability to socialize with other children his age that may have been or are going through some of the things he did. It is a place I feel confident to send him. They understand that some kids come from hard places and wouldn't get a camp experience any other way. He is super excited every time he gets to go." - Foster Parent
