BENEFITING: CROSS COUNTRY MINISTRIES INC
EVENT DATE: Aug 01, 2011
Every year in the summer, for the last 15 years, many of us from Alabama have traveled to the SW part of Virginia to minister to a small community through friendships, Bible studies and Vacation Bible School. The friendships have grown into lasting relationships which we cherish. But it wasn't enough to spend a couple of hours a day with young people in the few weeks we were there. The answer? A weeklong camp that teens, pre-teens and young adults could "live" together and REALLY develop lasting relationships while learning more about the Word of God.
There has been a great response from the teens and young people in the small community who want to attend the youth camp (which started recently). Many of the students there have never attended a week long camp, so they are looking forward to it. The majority of these youmg people will not be able to afford the tuition of the camp, so we are going to scholarship ALL of the campers. Please join us in our fundraiser to help send a teen to this Virginia youth camp!
If you are wondering if we are new at this youth camp business......we are not. Alabama Youth Camp (or SEYC as we call it) has been around for 22 years. You can check it out on our website.
We anticipate about 50 students attending the Virginia Youth Camp. Tuition is $140 each so our fundraising goal is $7000. Please join our team and donate to this wonderful cause.
