For many years, camp has been an influential and integral part of the lives of the Streetlight children and youth. It is much more than just a fun place to take them in order to get them out of the city of Elizabeth. At camp they are surrounded by passionate and caring individuals that love Jesus and genuinely love them. Camp is a safe environment where they can learn about Jesus, ask important questions, and observe the example of people of all ages doing their best to follow in Christ’s footsteps. It is also a place where they have formed healthy friendships with counselors and peers that have been a huge encouragement in their own spiritual lives. We have seen so much growth and fruit in many of the kids’ lives since they have been faithfully attending camp. We think it is of utmost importance to make a way for the Streetlight kids to continue going to camp in the summer and retreats throughout the year.
To make this giving more personal and relational, we will give each sponsor a specific child to “adopt”. The sponsor will then be given some background information about that child and a photo! The sponsor and the child will exchange letters during the week of summer camp and can even continue to write throughout the year.
We are asking that you sponsor a child for a minimum of one year. This will allow your child to attend one week of summer camp and two retreats, one in the fall and one in the winter.
A full sponsorship is $40 per month (or a one time gift of $480). This includes the fee for a week of summer camp (plus some spending money), two retreat weekends; one in the winter and another in the fall, as well as food and transportation to and from camp.
