Build the Bridge: A note from the Board of Directors of Miracle Camp
Dear FEC Church Family,
As you may have heard by now, the current health crisis has already had a huge impact on Miracle Camp. Due to the stay at home order, and for the health and well being of our guests, we have cancelled all Man Camp and Women’s Retreat events for the spring, which spanned over 6 weekends and included around 1,000 guests. As of now, we are planning on holding Summer Camp but, as you can probably guess, those plans may change. You may not know this, but over 90% of camp’s revenue comes from guests and campers. This leaves us in a very challenging financial situation as our camper and guest revenues have dropped to zero.
In light of this, our Board of Directors and Executive Director have authorized a special campaign to help camp through this time. We are calling this our “Build the Bridge” Campaign. The goal is to develop additional resources that will create a bridge to and through the summer (the next 3-6 months). Our objective is to raise $150,000. This will help ensure survival and a healthy camp as we come through this crisis.
We are intentionally and aggressively cutting and minimizing every expense possible and our staff team will most certainly be affected in some way. Our hope is to minimize this impact and to keep our core staff team intact so that we can still have a full summer and fall of youth and family programs.
Our team would greatly appreciate your prayers for wisdom for our Board of Directors and our staff team as we make decisions during this unprecedented time. If you are able, we also would ask that you would prayerfully consider supporting Miracle Camp with a financial gift to our Build the Bridge Campaign.
