Gift of Camp Campaign 2020
We are doing our Annual Gift of Camp Campaign Fundraiser and are hoping that you would make a donation.
Few things make us happier than changing the lives of urban youth one smile at a time. Our ministry has provided engaging camp experiences for urban youth over the last fifteen years.
We have found that most urban families are overwhelmed at the thought of needing to pay $350 for a week of residential camp. We are reminded of the Scripture “He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” ~Romans 8:32. This is God’s great pleasure – to bless His children. Emerging HOPE desires to bless His children by alleviating the financial stress for youth to attend camp. With your help we can accomplish this goal!
How can you say NO to a young person who needs – and wants – this life-changing experience? We need you to help us bless them too! Make a difference in a child’s life and donate today. Over the last fifteen years, the Emerging HOPE has partnered with camps throughout Kalamazoo County to award free camp scholarships to urban and under-resourced children. This year, we need your help to make an even greater impact. We desire that all children have an opportunity to benefit from a camping experience.
Please consider becoming a CAMP HERO by being one of our sponsors.
Here are ways you can help us to provide this ministry to youth:
-A gift of $4000 will cover the cost of four weeks to lease chartered buses for transportation to and from camp
-A gift of $2500 will sponsor a cabin of 20 campers for a week at Beechpoint Christian Camp

“The camp scholarship program is such a blessing. I am a single parent without extra money to be able to afford to send my child to camp. I am so grateful that you offered me the scholarship. I really wanted my child to have something I never had, something that would really impact her life.” — David, Emerging H.O.P.E. scholarship recipient camp parent.
