Dear Miracle Camp Friends, Families and Churches,

If you are reading this, you are most likely a friend of camp or camp has had a significant impact on your life, the life of your kids, family, or loved ones.

We are asking you for your prayers and financial help as we navigate this unprecedented time. Due to the mandates and guidelines issued by state and federal agencies, all of Miracle Camp’s ministries are closed through the end of May (at least).  And, it is possible that this could affect our summer season as well.

Since over 90% of our revenue comes from campers, this leaves us in a very challenging financial situation.  Our camper and guest revenues have dropped to near zero.

Our Board of Directors and Executive Director have authorized a special campaign to help camp through this time.  We are calling this our “Build the Bridge” Campaign.  The goal is to develop additional resources that will create a bridge to and through the summer (the next 3-6 months).

We are working diligently with our staff leadership and Board of Directors to craft a “financial contingency plan” to bridge the gap to the summer and beyond.  To that end, our objective is to raise $150,000.  This will help ensure survival and a healthy camp as we come through this crisis.

Will you prayerfully consider making an immediate meaningful donation to help Miracle Camp!?  This can be in the form of a one-time gift or as a monthly pledge over the next 3-6 months.

We are intentionally and aggressively cutting and minimizing every expense possible.  Our staff team will most certainly be affected in some way.  Our hope is to minimize this impact and to keep our core staff team intact so that we can still have a full summer and fall of youth and family programs.

We want to ensure that we come out of the current crisis healthy and able to continue our 55 year legacy and tradition of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with young people and families.

You can make a real difference now! (Please click on the button below to make a donation.)

Thank you so much for your continued prayers, partnership and support.

In Christ,

Camp is a powerful place and experience for a number of reasons. First of all, it practically gets kids (and adults even) away from what they’re used to. It pulls people away from the busyness of everyday life and the stress, anxiety, and worry that accompanies the regular flow of school, work, and other commitments. Any number of these factors can distract someone from fellowship with God and easily take the form of an idol. Allowing people a place to practice the spiritual discipline of retreat is a beautiful gift. We love helping people engage personal spiritual disciplines like solitude, prayer, Bible reading, resting in nature, — and communal worship like gospel-centered discussions, corporate worship, and fellowship over meals. Camp is powerful because it helps us all take a break from idols such as tech and work so that we can spend meaningful time with God.

The power of camp is also found in church partnerships. At its core, Miracle Camp is a parachurch ministry. We are not trying to take the place of local churches, but to support the Church as the bride of Christ. We want to be a place where people are encouraged in their faith and comforted by the gospel. We desire to be a ministry where relationships within church communities are both formed and bolstered. And we know that the relationships and the transformation that starts at Miracle Camp doesn’t stay here. The relationships and conversations started on our campus reap a gospel harvest back in local communities. In other words, Miracle Camp is a catalyst–a starting point–where faith decisions are made. As people have transforming encounters with Jesus here, we take great comfort in knowing that that transformation will continue on as they go home.

If you believe in the power of camp, would you consider helping us build the bridge? If your live has been positively impacted the gospel message through Miracle Camp, would you please help us continue that same ministry for the generations to come?
