SUMMER CAMPS

We’ve got 2 terrific camp opportunities for our kids this summer.

June 13-17, we’ll be sending at least 10 of our Middle School and High School kids to YFN Camp in Dallas with the Messiah’s House Youth Group. Those who went last year absolutely loved it. It’s the one week of the summer they can get away from their every day lives and have some fun, meet new people, and have the opportunity to sit and spend time with the Lord. In addition, they get 3 great meals a day, which is important for them. Cost to send one youth to camp is $250. We’d love for you to donate part or all of that amount, or sponsor more than one teen. Your donation will help a teenager enjoy their favorite week of the summer.

Wednesday, July 6 – Friday, July 8, we’ll be taking between 40 and 50 of our elementary-aged kids to Hidden Falls Ranch for Camp Awesome, our annual 3-day mini-camp. This is the week the kids talk about all year long. It’s their summer vacation and for many, it’s their only chance all year to leave the Amarillo city limits. We hike, ride horses, wall climb, swim, roast s’mores, and have all kinds of fun. Hidden Falls graciously donates the use of their facilities and staff. We pay for the meals, bedding, supplies, and provide every camper with a camp t-shirt. So we do incur costs of an average of $30 per kid. Any amount you donate will help us provide 3 great meals a day for our kids and a shirt commemorating the fun (and a shirt they’ll wear a couple of times a week the rest of the summer).

    I would be willing to help with the backpacks. Just let me know what I need to do.

    1. Thanks Shona! I’ll be in touch with you at the end of the month once I have all the families sign up. Really appreciate it! Brooks

    Excited about tonight’s event. I was wondering what type of attire would be appropriate?

    1. Cynthia,
      Glad you’ll be there! Since there’s a raffle for a workout with Rich after the event, anything from workout attire to business casual is fine. I think most people will probably come dressed for a possible workout.
