Our camps are doing everything possible to make in-person ministry a reality this summer.

Last year, when the pandemic shuttered overnight camping, many of our ministry points shifted to a day camp model. During the summer, more than 3,500 children and youth participated in in-person camp activities and heard the good news of the Gospel!

While traditional sleep-away camps were sorely missed, the Holy Spirit was at work. Smaller day camp settings allowed for extra one-on-one time with campers and deeper conversations about Jesus. Lives were forever changed.

This year, the day camp model will be our go-to once again.

Watch: Bill McCaskell chats with Doug Barr of Ranger Lake Bible Camp about the importance of camp ministry in community.

However, it comes at a financial cost. Families benefit from lower day camp fees but the costs of running camp ministry have stayed nearly the same. This reality makes day camp impossible if not for the financial support of God’s people.

Boys and girls in your community need to hear about Jesus this summer. 

Our goal is to tell more than 7,000 children and youth—twice as many as last summer—who Jesus is and what He has done for them. But only you can make this happen. 

Your support ensures day camp remains affordable and accessible for as many families as possible. Your gift pays for additional camp costs not covered by camper fees. 

A gift of $27 helps cover the additional costs for one child to attend a week of day camp; $108 makes the experience possible for a group of four, $216 for a group of eight. Your generous donation of $1,350 helps cover the additional costs for all children attending day camp during a single week.

Will you prayerfully consider making it possible for children and youth to learn about Jesus this summer? 

We can’t think of a more worthy and important cause than discovering the lasting hope of knowing Jesus!
