On camp days we typically have 100-150 children which presents a need for 20-30 youth and another 20-30 adult volunteers at a camp. Besides the manpower, there are also the financial needs of funding the transportation and the food. There are also opportunities to help with the camp upkeep and work projects during the week and the off-seasons. Projects available for youth groups.Specific ways you can help:Pray: This is a ministry whose purpose is to win souls for the Kingdom.
