Many have found it very beneficial to give to something specific. We have several ongoing projects that you may have a passion for and would enjoy giving toward. Here is our ever-changing list of items or projects that you may enjoy adopting.
We have yet to turn away a child because of financial resources. One of our commitments early on was to allow everyone the opportunity to attent camp regardless of whether they could afford the cost. We have a growing number of individuals who help us with the cost of a week of summer camp for children who could not come otherwise.
Sitting in a red rocker has become a signature part of The Refuge experience. From quiet times looking out over the lake, to times spent in prayer with a friend, these rockers not only add to the beauty of our early 1900 farm houses, but create the "front porch experience" that we feel is so valuable to life at The Refuge.
Canoeing has become a huge part of life at The Refuge. Five years ago we purchased ten canoes on a very limited budget and have seen our canoe adventure program grow tremendously in a short time. We offer father-child canoe trips, men's and women's trips, and day trips all summer long during our summer camps. The canoes we purchased have been repaired several times since and we are now in need of buying canoes once again. This would be a great way to help us offer a fun canoe adventure while also sharing the greatest adventure of all, knowing Christ.
As we finish more farm houses to be used as cabins we have a growing need for mattresses. The Hiding Place is nearing completion and is in need of 24 mattresses that will fit in bunks. We use high quality camp mattresses that can be wiped clean after every group of campers leave.
