Giving Thanks… for WINTER Volunteers!
Did you know? Good work is happening every week to grow and maintain your camp! You can help! All skill levels welcome – and needed! Volunteer Tuesdays offer a chance to use time, talents, and treasures to make a real difference. Or come on a weekend with a group to bond and do something truly important together.
Tuesday mornings at 9, we meet the team for complimentary coffee & rolls before the day’s tasks (something different every week), returning for hot lunch at noon – then a wrap-up in the early afternoon. Enjoy making meaningful progress for a GREAT cause, alongside some of the best “coworkers” you’ll ever meet!
If travel (or time) is not possible for you right now – but you still want to make this good work your own, you can help fund a project to make it possible! Please call 608-734-3113 to hear about this month’s projects, share ideas, and learn about current needs.
Know of anyone with time and talent to share for a good cause? Or a church property committee / WELCA group / family / coworkers / spouse with energy (and maybe tools?) to lend? Pick a Tuesday, or a weekend – we’ve got options! Dozens of exciting upgrades are on the docket right now. Your help truly makes a difference, to keep Bible camp affordable for kids & families.
Thanks to volunteers, camp staff, generous donors, and God’s provision, over 30,000 contact hours of intentional Christian education happened this summer for youth! WOW!!
Thank you to volunteers, guests, and donors… Your support means your Bible camp can hope to stay strong, relevant, and Spirit-filled for tens of thousands more kids & families in the years to come.
COVID-19: Sugar Creek Bible Camp, a 501c3 nonprofit, is accredited by the American Camping Association. In faith in Jesus Christ and trust in God’s calling to love our neighbors, we continue to honor medical professionals in the CDC and to trust the expertise of local doctors in following lifesaving COVID-19 prevention protocols. Together we can help end this pandemic.
It’s a lot of work, but at Sugar Creek you see & feel that you are worth it! God gives us each the strength to endure – not in fear, but in truth and love – and it is working to keep our campers engaged, participatory, adventurous, faith-filled, fun-loving, and safe!
Your support is crucial while this pandemic continues to affect guest numbers and retreat income sources. Your help makes the difference. It means your camp stays strong to serve even more children and families in your area, who need hope, faith, and connection more than ever.
Your own personal role in building up this Bible camp – financially so more are reached, in prayer so we are effective, and in person – means you can express your faith and purpose in Christ through camp! You empower people (especially kids) with lifelong Christian faith, empathy and compassion, knowledge of the Word, and healthy self-confidence.
For our thousands of kids & families… for creative adult ministries… for the wider Christian Church… and in the name of Jesus Christ, we thank you.
