GIVING INFO

The spiritual and relational benefits that Family Camp offers come with financial price tags attached. However, we don’t want finances to be a barrier for families. Therefore, the only required payment is for meals and accommodations, and these fees are set to cover the costs of providing these services. The bulk of the costs associated with family camp, including the various ministry teams, is raised in free will offerings taken during the evening services. The construction and maintenance of the facilities is primarily financed through donations, small and large, of those who have benefited from the camp and want to see its ministry continue for future generations. In accordance with the New Testament practice, individuals and families are asked to contribute towards the camp offerings according to their means rather than their consumption.
