School lets out for Summer in just a few weeks. And that means our annual summer camps are right around the corner.

We’ll be sending 10-12 of our teenagers to YFN in Dallas June 18-22 with the Messiah’s House Youth Group. This is always a powerful, special week for the kids. For several of the kids who have signed up, this will be their first experience at a weeklong youth camp. Cost of camp is $295. We’ve asked each of our kids to contribute $50 toward their week, and they’re hard to earn that money. Mission 2540 is covering the rest of that amount for them to make sure none of them miss out! If you’d like to help us out by sponsoring a child ($245 per kid) or 2, or even helping with half of the camp fee, donate here. Or mail a check to Mission 2540 with the memo “Camp.”

On Sunday, July 1-Wednesday, July 3, we’ll embark on what our kiddos consider the best 3 days of the year. Camp Awesome is a camp we put on for 50 3rd-6th graders at Hidden Falls Ranch. Our kids talk about camp for 6 months after it is over, and then ask about when the next one is for the next 6 months. We hike, play games, ride horses, zip line, swim, learn archery, roast S’mores, and have the time of our lives. It’s an absolute blast, and for many of our kids, the only time of the year they get to leave the city limits. Each year, we have kids who have never spent the night away from their moms. It’s a really special 3 days. Due to the generosity of our friends at HFR, many of the fees a camp like this would incur are donated. Our cost to send one child to camp is just $30.

If you’d like to help us out by sponsoring a child ($245 per kid for youth camp, or $30 for Camp Awesome)  or even helping with a portion of the camp fee, donate here. Or mail a check to Mission 2540 with the memo “Camp.”
