2016 Camp 18five

Where: Baptist HIll Assembly - 9519 State Highway V., Mt. Vernon, MO 65712

When: August 01, 2016

In 2008, CFM fulfilled a long time dream of starting a summer camp for the children served in its Treatment Foster Homes and Therapeutic Group Homes. Camp is formative in the faith-lives of all children, because it gives children that retreat experience that helps them to feel the power of God in their lives. That experience was one that the children in care were missing. In order to support the children and make a lasting difference in their lives, summer camp was begun.

This summer camp experience is called Camp 18five. The name comes from Matthew 18:5 in which Jesus says "whoever welcomes one such child in my name also welcomes me."

We expect approximately 100 campers for the 2015 Camp 18five. These will be school-age children and youth who are living on our residential campuses or in treatment foster homes. These children have suffered physical and emotional trauma which triggered behavioral issues. We have selected these children to bring to camp, not because they are the easiest to work with, but because they have the greatest need. For most, this will be their first camp experience.

Your participation will not only change the lives of children and teenagers - it will change your life as well!

It is important to note, that for this direct client contact opportunity, a background check including criminal and child/sexual abuse records) will be conducted.

For more information about this opportunity, please contact Pastor George at 800-264-6224 or george.fulgham@mbch.org.
