Camperships Offer Life-Changing Experience
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
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.
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!
