  The Fund for Camp Needs Your Help
Supporting the Ministry of the Pueblo Presbytery Summer Camp

“In the special setting of Summer Camp, children, youth and adults encounter God in ways that do not happen in worship, Sunday School, or youth group.  Something happens that is unique and extraordinary.”   ~ A Presbyterian Pastor

For the past 33 years, the Pueblo Presbytery Summer Camp has been a significant ministry in the lives of hundreds of children, youth and adults.  Invite your congregation to participate in the “Fund for Camp” second-mile offering in 2014 to help keep Summer Camp going for another 30 years!

What you can expect:

  • Videos, bulletin inserts, posters, and social media connections to help you promote and explain the “Fund for Camp” second-mile offering.
  • Resources for worship planning on “Fund for Camp” Sunday, such as sermon material, liturgies, music, and guest speakers from the Summer Camp program who can share their personal experience with your congregation.
  • One “full-ride” scholarship to Summer Camp for your congregation to award to a camper from your church to attend the upcoming camp that year, as our way of saying thank you for supporting the Fund for Camp.

Why we need the Fund for Camp second-mile offering:

  • Due to budget cuts, there are no longer funds available in the Presbytery’s budget to fund the Summer Camp program after 2014.  Campers currently pay $340 to attend camp for a week.  Unless we raise this fee to $450 per camper or charge our volunteer staff $340 per person to come and rent the camp for the week, the Summer Camp program cannot be self-sustaining. The Fund for Camp will allow us to continue to operate the program with little or no financial impact to campers or volunteer staff and keep this successful ministry going.

Long-term goals of the Fund for Camp:

  • Raise a minimum of $7,500 each year to provide the basic funding needed to operated the Summer Camp program.
  • Utilize funds received beyond the minimum needed for operating to create a subsidy that will help keep camp affordable for families and to create a Scholarship Fund that will allow us to help more kids come to camp.

How the Fund for Camp offering works:

  • Choose a Sunday prior to March 1 as your “Fund for Camp” Sunday.
  • Prior to “Fund for Camp” Sunday, promote and advertise this second-mile giving opportunity using the resources provided.
  • On “Fund for Camp” Sunday, have fun with a ‘camp’ theme in worship and collect the special offering.
  • Send the collected funds to the Presbytery office as soon as possible.
  • Award your free camp scholarship to the excited camper of your choice!
