"The Power of Camp” Seeks to Provide an Experience in Nature to Kids Overconnected to Tech
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Christian Camp and Conference Association (CCCA) launched The Power of Camp, a nation-wide campaign to send thousands of underprivileged kids to camp. The campaign also helps spread the word about the wide variety of camps available for kids and families.
“Imagine the impact if any kid, anywhere could go to camp regardless of their ability to pay. Imagine if kids struggling with their identity, longing to be loved, faced with huge peer pressure or thoughts of self-injury could experience in a beautiful place the love of a God who has a plan for their lives,” said Gregg Hunter, CCCA President/CEO.
More than five and a half million guests go to a CCCA member camp each year. Camp provides incredible opportunities that kids might not have access to otherwise. At camp, kids get to spend 10,080 minutes away from normal pressures of life. Camp offers positive adult role models, freedom to be unplugged from technology, high-adventure environments and a place to build lifelong friendships.
