On the first day of a camp week, campers find themselves in a new place, unsure of what the week holds for them. As they take in their surroundings, counselors are playing new games, unfamiliar peers are sharing meals with them, and worship is held around a campfire rather than their usual church sanctuary. The unknown can be intimidating, but exciting!
As the week progresses, timid singing voices become louder and more joyful. Through challenging faith conversations, campers are given opportunities to grow into their personalities and become confident children of God. Campers leave on that last day transformed by the love of God and given a faith community to return to the following summer, or maybe even for years to come. Summer camp offers children a safe space to learn about themselves and their gifts, impacts their future and encourages them to grow into faithful leaders of the church.
Green Lake Lutheran Ministries firmly believes that everyone who wants to experience a week at camp should be able to. Financial concerns should not be a barrier to participating. Green Lake Lutheran Ministries has established a scholarship fund and has been joyfully sharing these resources through an application process. Each year, we receive over 100 scholarship requests and approve each and every one. To make this possible, we need to raise 100 scholarships of $510, ensuring that camp is available for everyone. This is an integral part of the ministry happening at camp - and you can help.
Please consider sponsoring a camper, which will impact their life in amazing and unimaginable ways.
