Imagine - a parent receiving a letter that goes sort-of kind-of like this....
Greetings from Sound View Camp!
Your child has been given an opportunity to attend Camp Sound View - for free. This is a resident (sleep away) camp in Longbranch, WA. This opportunity is compliments of your local Presbyterian church.
While at camp, your child can enjoy these activities:
- ARTS & CRAFTS
- CANOEING & KAYAKING
- SWIMMING IN THE SOUND
- SPORTS & GAMES
- SKITS & SONGS
- MORNING CHAPEL
- HIKES, GARDENING & NATURECRAFT
- ROPES COURSE
- UKULELE LESSONS
- CRAZY AND FUN EVENING PROGRAMS
- GOOD FOOD
- ENTHUSIASTIC LEADERS
- MINI FARMING & ANIMAL CARE
- FUN! (AND MORE FUN)
Please call Kurt at Sound View Camp - 253-884-9202 - (Extension 1) to get your child signed up. Or, if you have Internet access, you can do it online with the sponsorship code. If you need help with transportation to and from camp, please call.
We are looking forward to serving your child at camp.
Now imagine that parent:
- Maybe struggling to stay afloat
- Maybe homeless
- Maybe needing some quality, unhindered time to look for work
- Maybe a refugee
- and trying to be a good parent nonetheless ....
.... and all of a sudden, a chance presents itself for their child to enjoy a wonderful experience away from home, fed, taken care of, in a positive Christian environment. Wow! Isn't this what we are all about as the Outdoor Ministry for the Presbytery of Olympia?
A healthy camp is one that is diverse - full of kids of ALL socioeconomic means who want to have safe, positive experiences in the out-of-doors with caring leaders. $375 sends a kid to camp for a week and at the same time makes a parent a hero.
Please consider donating to our scholarship fund so more of these letters can be distributed.
