Empowering Existing Ministries

Donate to the ministry
Our staff consists of both professional, salaried staff and qualified volunteers. All staff are trained in the Bible study curriculum, the care and safety of young people, and specialized activities. Leaders are carefully chosen to meet the needs of each age group and are trained to understand and follow the guidelines and procedures of the camping program of Camping and Retreat Commission Summer Camps. Lots of help is needed both in the kitchen and to counsel. Please look over the calendars below and see whether you might be able to help out in any of these areas. Click here to volunteer. 


 

Financial Assistance

Camp and Retrteat costs cannot be eliminated. Camp expenses are quite high, especially for families with several children. Churches often help with these costs to offset the expense. Scholarships are alos available. However some people are very reluctant to ask for scholarships due to many factors: pride, realing unworthy, feeling others need the help more, several children in the family, and other unknown reasons. Many simpley do not send their children or attend an event due to the high costs. Even with a bare bones budget and lower registration costs last year, camp and retreats have been unattainabnle for some. We are searching for ways to encourage  more people to participate in these different life changing experiences. 

The Camping and retreat Committee is seeking generous individuals an churches who would be willing to underwrite these expenses and help reduce the costs to all campers. With a lower cost per participant, it is hoped that many more people will find the camping and retreat opportunities affordable to their budgets.
