La Estrella has an exciting opportunity happening next week – Camp Chestnut Ridge is sending counselors and staff to lead a traveling day camp for the children of La Estrella for a 5 day long summer day camp.
In the spring, Camp Chestnut Ridge received a grant for 25 campers to be paid in full ($125 each) and based on registrations, we did not anticipate needing to ask for additional funding.
However, we have had the blessing of two new families joining La Estrella’s ministry in recent weeks who would like to attend this camp, putting our registration numbers up to 35. This means we have ten campers who are not paid in full to attend camp next week and that we need to raise $1,250 ($125 per camper).
We would like to ask you to consider making a donation to help sponsor these children to attend camp. The families of La Estrella are struggling financially, and cannot pay the cost for their children to attend.
Any amount will make a difference, so we ask that you prayerfully consider making a donation so that each child can be paid in full for next week, allowing them to grow in their love of Christ and have an amazing week at camp!
Feel free to share this need with your congregations, and anyone you know who may be willing to answer this call. This is a wonderful opportunity for the children of La Estrella and I know that God will provide for our needs.
All donations can be made out to NCCUMC- La Estrella, with day camp in the memo line, and then mailed to:
