Thank you for considering how you can make a difference in the lives of our local youth!

The kids in our local low-income communities are facing real challenges; pressure to join gangs or sell drugs, violence they see “first hand,” and pressure to become sexually active.  Our kids also face discrimination because of where they live or the color of their skin.  In my years at FVCA we’ve seen teenagers with great potential significantly impacted by pregnancy and gang violence.  Our kids need better alternatives.

The good news is that summer camp gives kids an opportunity to grow in so many ways!  They experience a safe place where it’s ok just to be a kid. They experience new things: canoeing, campfires, spending time in the woods, and learning to live “in community.”  These opportunities help kids grow in their ability to try things that are hard or different or new. 

A study by the American Camp Association suggests that kids who attend camp become more confident and experience increased self-esteem, develop more social skills that help them make new friends, grow more independent and show more leadership qualities, and become more adventurous and willing to try new things. 

Most importantly, camp provides an amazing opportunity to help kids take their next step in their walk with Jesus! True life change begins with a relationship with Jesus and that’s why we are committed to share the Gospel in everything we do!

We’re preparing to serve 750 youth this summer at no-cost to their families.  It costs about $450 to provide a child with a 5-day / 4-night camp session.  I’m asking you today to consider your most generous gift to help sponsor one or more kids to come this summer and experience all that Jesus has for them!
