Summer Day Camp Scholarships

Every year, we have numerous families from our community who are facing hardships and extenuating life circumstances that make it financially difficult to send their child for even one week of summer camp. In some cases there has been a long- term job loss, often one of the parents or a family member is seriously ill, and in recent times we’ve had families impacted by Hurricane Sandy who needed assistance. In spite of the appearance of “affluence” in our immediately surrounding community, we encounter families from all financial demographics on a regular basis.

It is the kids in the midst of these situations who perhaps need the power of a camp experience in their lives the most.

DCS Camper Scholarships make that possible. We want to come alongside families to provide the camp experience and to stand with the families in prayer, support, and encouragement.

However, the scholarship program has operated as a discounted tuition program meaning we did not have outside funding, but we simply took the loss on our revenue. The scholarship need far outpaces our ability to take sustained revenue loss, so we are seeking the support of camp families, alumni and community friends who believe in the power and impact of a DCS experience to help us make it possible for more kids.

Time and time again, we have seen God use the unique time and space of this “temporary community” to bring about life-changing experiences for the camper. For some kids, we are their safe place” in the midst of life’s storms. We’ve had parents and grandparents tell us that their kids wear their camp shirt during the year when they’ve had a rough day at school. Kids need camp. Would you consider a tax-deductible gift today to make it possible?

Thank you for partnering with us to help kids thrive and become all that God created them to be!

Parent Testimonials

“Lea loves camp and has been inspired personally and spiritually to want to be a good camp counselor like the one's she has had. She hopes to work there someday when old enough. Thank you for all that all of you do to help our kids have fun and learn about God!”

– 2013 Camp Parent

“I have recommended your camp to many friends and acquaintances. Your camp was everything I hoped for and more. And I was most appreciative that all activities remained outdoors, rain or shine. My children had their first exposure to Biblical lessons and a relationship with God and it was superbly done!”
