These funds opened the door for over 62 children and youth to attend a life-changing camp experience in 2016. On behalf of these families, and our team, we want to say thank you for making these opportunities possible.
This past year we celebrated our 20th anniversary with the theme, “Why We Love Camp”, and have heard countless stories of the real difference camp is making in lives.
We heard from campers like Naomi who said:
“Before [camp] I didn’t actually know God for who He was… then I realized He was more than just someone who created the earth—He was someone who saved me, cares for me, and loves me.”
In a single-parent home where her earthly father is not present, Naomi has experienced the wonder and love of a heavenly Father who will never leave her side.
Without your support, stories like Naomi’s wouldn’t be possible.
But that’s not all—camp offers countless benefits such as time in nature, which is proven to make kids happier, healthier, and even more generous. Campers build confidence and gain important leadership skills naturally through group games. Most importantly, camp provides a place for children and youth to belong, leading to a greater sense of self-worth, the foundation for a successful life.
Without a doubt, camp makes a difference.
That’s why we’re launching our 4th annual CAMPaign initiative May 29th – June 2nd to pre-fund scholarships for upcoming Summer and Fall camps. Our goal is to help an additional 78 children and youth experience the power of camp in 2017. To cover this cost, we need additional funds to reach our $15,000 goal.
We simply cannot do it without you. As a 501c3 non-profit organization we rely on contributions from local individuals, churches and organizations as we continue to impact the life, community and culture around us.
Will you consider a tax-deductible donation to help this great cause? Would you be willing to make a special donation of $50, $100 or more to help local families facing hardship experience the life-changing power of camp? If your answer is “Yes!”, simply visit www.campgideon.com/thecampaign for fast and secure online giving.
Children and youth are counting on you to make their dream of attending camp possible.
Thank you for partnering with us to impact lives!
