Summer 2015 Season

53 Sloan Scholarships Awarded in 2015

2015 was a great year for the Joel Sloan Florida College Camp Scholarship Fund. In 2015 the Fund awarded scholarships to 53 campers.

The recipients live in ten different states (Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Georgia, Colorado, Florida, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Carolina and Kentucky). Two campers even came from Bogota, Colombia to attend the Florida camp!

The recipients attended camps in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio and Minnesota.

The campers ranged in age from 8 to 18 and are diverse in race and ethnicity. The common theme in all campers receiving scholarships was the expressed desire to enjoy camp with a spiritual emphasis and with kids who share a common faith and belief.

Donations to the Sloan Scholarship Fund came primarily from individuals. The individuals ranged from parents whose kids previously attended a Florida College camp to people previously unfamiliar with Florida College or its camps but who knew kids that would benefit from a summer camp with a spiritual emphasis. Some donors honored the memory of others by donating to the Sloan Scholarship Fund. Special thanks also to Publix Super Markets Charities for its donation.

With a very successful 2015 camping and scholarship season behind us, we look forward to 2016. Thanks for your continued support.

A Very Special Way to Honor Someone

There are many ways to help the work of the Sloan Scholarship Fund. Dean Robertson was a faithful gospel preacher for many years. He passed away in June, 2015. His son Phil is the Director of the Florida camp. Phil generously asked that donations in his father’s memory be made to the Sloan Scholarship Fund. It is obvious from the response to Phil’s request that his father impacted many people. These donors generously provided the funds to award at least 10 Sloan Scholarships in 2016. Phil’s request shows the power of honoring someone in way that truly “pays it forward.” Thanks to the entire Robertson family for their thoughtfulness and generous gesture.

“Music is a gift. It allows us to communicate with each other in a powerful way. The Florida College Friends have been doing this for decades with our friends, alumni and prospective students. We are privileged to share the message and mission of Florida College through one of God’s most beautiful and timeless gifts.” — Adam Olson, Florida College Friends

“You allowed accepted me for the scholarship this year of 2015 to allow me to enjoy the best week of my life. I just wanted to let you know how much I am thankful for that. Before I left for camp I was short in money about $150. I was very scared I would not be able to see and spend time with my friends, but most of all, sing praises to God in a safe environment. Once I heard about the scholarship I was overjoyed. Money has been tight lately…so this was possibly the best thing that someone could do for me. Georgia camp was the best. And I have you to thank for helping me go. Thank you and God bless you.” — A 2015 Georgia Sloan Scholar
