Camperships Offer Life-Changing Experience
A typical week of LUM Camp involves nature hikes, arts and crafts, boating, swimming, morning chapel, wall climbing, zip-lining, the giant swing, snacks, delicious meals, and diverse and caring counselors. LUM knows first-hand what has been verified by scientific research: a week of camp has tremendous benefits for the campers’ social skills, gross and fine motor skills, intellectual curiosity, positive values, spirituality, and overall positive identity. These benefits of a camp experience are shown to persist throughout a lifetime. This is why Lafayette Urban Ministry has hosted a camp every summer since the 1960’s.
LUM Camp is a scholarship-based camp, meaning we only invite children whose parents are not able to pay for the actual cost of camp. (The actual cost is more than $200 per camper.) Campers’ parents to pay $5 per child, and LUM needs donors like you to cover the rest. Won’t you please consider a gift to support the LUM Youth Programs and send a child to LUM Camp? Here is how your gift impacts our children:
- $200 = sponsor one LUM camper
- $400 = sponsor two LUM campers
- $100 = ½ LUM Camp sponsorship
- Any amount will support LUM Youth Programs
Your camp sponsorship will help pay for a child’s transportation, room and board, camp activities, educational programs and supplies – everything she or he will need to attend LUM Camp 2021. And THANK YOU!
Please note: LUM is working closely with the professional staff at Hanging Rock Assembly Camp, the long-time host site of LUM Camp. LUM Camp is being planned in compliance with and exceeding the guidelines developed by the American Camp Association and the YMCA of the USA. All donations to LUM Camp will be used entirely on the campers’ experience.
