Change the Lives of Children in Poverty Through Camp!
This year, give a gift that will help provide a summer camp experience for children who could not otherwise experience camp.
Many of you heard that our trailers, supplies, and equipment have all been stolen. This has been incredibly discouraging, and though we have filed with the police and our insurance, we will still need your help to recover.
Please help us continue to offer a high-quality summer camp program to children who would not otherwise be able to afford it.
Ways to Give:
This year our campers need items like arrows, slingshots, crayons, tents, canopies, and other items that help them have an awesome camp experience. You can purchase items from our Amazon Wish List and give fun experiences to up to 1440 campers in 2020! Because of the major theft we experienced, our wishlist is more important than ever, and is updated with most of the things we need to replenish our supplies.
We want to give every child who comes to CITC a Bible in their own language. We need 1400 more for next summer. Each Bible bought through our Wish List is around $2 each, and every Bible purchased goes straight into the hands of a child who needs it. We have given out over 2000 Bibles so far, and with your help we can replenish our supply so each camper who needs a Bible can receive one at camp. We will teach them how to find verses during their camp week.
You can donate funds directly to Camp in the Community through our Theft Recover Fund, Annual Fund, or Adopt-A-Camper Fund. A week at camp costs $120 per camper, but because of donations from people like you, no camper is ever charged to attend. Your gift helps us give a child in poverty an experience they wouldn't have without you. Gifts at all levels are appreciated. Our advanced special number is 869. You can also mail checks to: Camp in the Community, PO Box 850 Alcoa, TN 37701.
In Honor or Memory Cards:
If you would like to give a gift in honor or memory of someone you care about, after purchasing the gift please fill out the short form (link below) so we can send a cute card to the address you choose. The card will detail the difference the gift is making in the lives of children in poverty. Thank you!
