Gift of Camp Campaign 2019

Few things make us happier than changing the lives of urban youth one smile at a time. Providing engaging camp experiences for urban youth is the bridge that will connect people from potentially painful places to their purpose. Sometimes youth have to be geographically displaced and uprooted from the norms of your everyday life to come alive and see clearly what is possible. 

 

During the summer months, with hours of idle time on their hands, many youth are recruited by older gang members and often fall prey to dangerous activities. We have found that most urban families are overwhelmed at the thought of needing to pay $350 for an experience to escape their hood, have the freedom to embrace nature, hear the voice of God, and be loved by a staff that loves them.  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 wants to bless His children by alleviating the financial stress for youth to attend camp.

 

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. We are now at a critical juncture and need your help to send 200 under-resourced urban youth to summer camp.   Over the last twelve 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.
