Boys and girls are literally counting the days until The Scott Mission Summer Camp begins. I know how they feel, because I was once one of them.
Not only was I fortunate enough to attend The Scott Mission Summer Camp in my youth, but the counsellors there sowed into me a deep desire to serve others as I had been served. So, at just 15 years old, I started working at summer camp . . . and although my roles changed over the years that followed, I never really left.
Now, as Camp Director, I can clearly see the life-changing impact this experience has on children and youth and the counsellors who serve them . . . and I am humbled by the team God has assembled to make it happen”a dream team made up of friends like you.
Consider this; more than 600 children will attend camp this year. A great many of those boys and girls live in poverty, so the opportunity to go to camp would never happen without gifts from caring donors. This is important because, here, the campers can leave behind the hardship that weighs them down each day in the city, and enjoy the wonder and beauty of the wilderness, while experiencing God”s love through the compassion and care of our staff and counsellors.
