Grace recently received a scholarship request from a mother. She was not asking for support for her own children who attend camp, but for her foster child. She shared that this child had lost both parents through tragic circumstances. She went on to say that they hope to give a once-in-a-lifetime camp experience; one in which their foster child will be exposed to Christ and other followers of Christ.
This is not an isolated story. Each week, Grace Adventures receives requests from parents who desperately want their child to experience the hope that comes from attending camp. The stories are heartbreaking. In these challenging times, it is Grace Adventures' goal that no child is turned away from camp because they are unable to afford it.
There have always been people like you who recognize the incredible value of the camp experience and, even more, the value of a child’s life being changed for eternity. Last year, Grace, through God’s people, was able to help over 1900 children and their families by providing over $50,000 in financial assistance. The scholarship request for this year will be at least as much. Would you please prayerfully consider what part you can play in helping one or more campers attend a life-changing week of camp this summer?
Our two daughters, ages 9 & 10, returned from camp just last night and want to go back today already! This is their second year at the Paradise Ranch and they enjoy every minute of it. The Bible studies teach them so much about being a Christian and the atmosphere is a fun learning time.
Thanks so much for taking care of our kids and we hope that they will be counselors someday when they grow up. - Camper Parent
