Building Brighter Futures By Reaching Kids Today

Your gift today will give vulnerable kids a life-changing summer at camp

Summer camp is an incredible tool in bringing hope and healing to children and youth. It can be a truly life-changing experience that invests in their future and brings them hope for tomorrow.

We need your help to make sure that no child in need is left out of the transformative experience of summer camp.

THE PROBLEM

Kids and Youth Need Your Help

There are so many children and youth in our city who are in desperate need of help and encouragement. Many are struggling with isolation, hunger, and difficult circumstances at home. They may not have adults in their lives who love them unconditionally; their home may not be safe.

We want to make sure that kids who have never been to summer camp have the opportunity to experience the joy of a week in nature. These are children who have never experienced the joy of singing campfire songs under the stars; they’ve never gone to sleep in a cabin exhausted from a day of fun and breathlessly anticipating the next one. For families who are already struggling with the cost of living, there is no room in the budget for a luxury like summer camp.

THE PLAN

This year, we are hoping to welcome boys and girls who have never left the city, never tasted a perfectly roasted marshmallow, or never sung songs around a campfire. Our goal is to bring 700 children to camp this summer for a total cost of $210,000.

In a tumultuous time like this, these camps are vital for meeting the immediate needs of vulnerable children as well as giving them a sense of purpose, stability, and hope for the future.

Through your generous giving, kids will learn new skills and build confidence through activities like rock climbing and archery. They will practice wilderness skill like building a campfire – for some, it is their first time in nature! Campers will build deep relationships with caring staff in a beautiful environment, make new friends and memories that will last a lifetime.

Summer camp is a life-changing experience that you can give a vulnerable child.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Will You Help These Kids Anxiously Waiting To Go To Camp?

We want every child who registers for camp to be able to attend, and registrations are pouring in! But we can’t do this without you – we need your help to make sure that summer camp is available for everyone who desperately needs it.

Will you consider giving the gift of a life-changing week at camp for a child in need? Thanks to an anonymous matching donor, every $300 you give will go twice as far – providing two children with a week at summer camp.

Please give your generous gift by June 27 so that we can invite the children who are anxiously awaiting an acceptance to summer camp. We don’t want any child who is longing to go to camp to miss out. 

Thank you for your deep heart of compassion.

May God bless you for your kindness!
