Christmas Giving Focus
We have had a great relationship with Camp Wi-Ne-Ma for many years. Hundreds of children and students from Crossroads have participated in camps. We have also sent many people from Crossroads as volunteer staff at the camp. Many people have been saved as children and students through camping ministry.
As you can imagine, there is a great deal of upkeep and cost associated with running a camp. One of their main financial objectives is to keep camp affordable for families while providing a quality and safe camp experience. Many camps charge $500 - $800 per week (per child). Wi-ne-ma charges $245.
One source of income for the camp is rental fees from three beach houses on the property. They would like to update the homes to make them more appealing to people looking for beach vacation rentals. This is a great opportunity for us to partner with them to increase this sustainable income stream for the camp.
Another objective that the camp has is to update several of the camper cabins. Each year there is a lot of wear and tear on the cabins during camp and as a result of the coastal weather.
They have a goal of raising $30,000 to accomplish the updates. We would like to raise half of the money ($15,000) toward the overall cost. There will also be volunteer opportunities for work crews to go over in the spring to help with the updates.
