Last Year We Sent 90+ Kids to Camp
Since it’s inception in 2015 the Joel Sloan Camp Fund has provided over 500 campers with scholarships. These camper’s needs are diverse. Some are campers whose parents have recently lost jobs. Some are campers whose parents are preachers and teachers and camp is a luxury expense that is hard to justify. Some are campers who have been adopted and their families want to immerse these young people in a spiritual environment.
One thing they all have in common, these are young people who thrive in these weeks of focused social, spiritual and physical development which they could not afford without Joel Sloan Camp Fund Scholarships. The generosity of our committed donors has made these 400 scholarships possible. Your contributions can help make this 2020 season our best year of giving yet!
Help a camper experience the best week of the summer!
What Campers and Parents Say About Their Experience
A Happy Camper, 2019
As a former camper, counselor and FC Camp Director I have the opportunity to see how powerful a week away with like minded friends, where the pressures of being a kid (and adult) are simplified by the atmosphere impact the people at the camps. Bible classes, sports, devotions, talent shows, games, arts and crafts and even the quiet down moments of conversations with friends all contribute to the ultimate goal of a building up a Christ centered person. The fun, laughter, pranks, tears and pure exhaustion are build relationships that are built for life. With four kids, 3 that attend camp we have always struggled to figure out how to insure that the kids can have that escape. Your fund fills in a huge gap and make their weeks through the years possible.
