Why Give

You can help fulfill the camp’s mission of “Reaching Outward to Connect People with God’s Abundance.” Your generous gift will help allow this camp, which has served children for over 100 years, continue to serve children for many years to come. In today’s increasingly technological world, people are less connected to the beauty and simplicity of nature and lack fulfillment of the innate need to connect with the natural world, both physically and spiritually. Our camp allows people of all ages to unplug from the fast-pace and high-pressure of their increasingly complicated daily lives and find their own mental and spiritual path in the tranquil setting of our wooded camp. Your gift will make the abundance of the beautiful Southern Indiana woodlands available to future generations of campers, allowing your legacy and the legacy of the camp to carry on for generations to come.

There are many options for giving to the camp. You may sponsor an adopt a project or wish list item by clicking on one of them below and then contacting us for more information; click on the Give Today button and use the drop down menu to sponsor one of these projects or make a monetary donation via Paypal, credit card, or debit card; or you may send a check directly to the church office. If sending a check, please specify that the check is to help the camp or identify the specific project the check is to be applied to.

Please retain your cancelled check or credit card/Paypal receipt as proof of giving for tax purposes or for church contribution records. If you require additional information, please contact the camp manager.
