Fox Valley Christian Action - Summer Camp Ministry

Mar 01, 2018

We’re always looking to grow our summer camp ministry team!

Summer is an incredible time to impact the life of a youth from low-income neighborhoods. You or your church can make a difference!

In Kane County alone, we have 25,000 youth whose families struggle below the federal poverty limit. For these kids, summer is a hard time. It’s hot, dry, and there’s nothing to do. Summer sports and family vacations are luxuries unavailable to them.

In 1977 we began with day camps, and soon began providing overnight camping programs, always at no cost to these families. Today Riverwoods provides opportunities every summer for over 800 youth.

Riverwoods Family Ca

mpus hosts a full resident Summer Discovery experience for spiritual growth. Group Bible studies, daily quiet times and testimonies are shared. Summer Discovery also includes canoeing, biking, hiking, arts & crafts, sports & games, and camp-outs.

Young children have multiple experiences each day to help them grow spiritually including a daily cabin-group Bible study, daily chapel and we end each day with our high energy evening Round-up—a time to share the Gospel creatively with music, puppets, skits and crazy activities on our pavilion stage.
