2024 Campership Drive Raised $20,000

A BIG thank you from all of us at Walcamp! Your support means we can provide more campers with the gift of summer camp this year!

Our annual campership drive through Give Dekalb County raised $20,954.47 through your donations and the additional bonus pool money. We are blessed to have this event in our community which helps raise awareness of the needs of the local non-profits and the work that we all do.

We believe that all children should have the opportunity to attend summer camp no matter what their families' financial abilities are. These donations give us the means to provide the staff, services, and support to make that happen for any camper in need. We will serve the community with confidence, knowing that God is blessing this ministry with the support from our friends; YOU!

60 Years of Serving

We are reaching the end of our 60th year of ministry, and it has been a great year of celebration. We have one more day of fun planned, and we are looking for individuals or groups to volunteer for a few hours on September 28th to make THIS last party a huge success.

To celebrate, we are planning a throw-back to our Fall Festival during the day followed by our annual Evening Under the Stars that night.

Can YOU sign up to serve from 2-4 hours, sharing your time and supporting our ministry? We need folks to help with all types of service from set-up, to food and activity service, and clean-up. Even if you serve, you will still have time to enjoy the event, so email [email protected] for more information.

Spring Outdoor Education

What a great season! Here is a summary:

  • 20 schools visited in 9 weeks
  • 453 students attended
  • 8 Outdoor Education instructors shared the love of Jesus
  • 1 GOD was given the GLORY for all of this

Our team is looking forward to the Fall season of Outdoor Education in September and October. Without these amazing servants, we could not support the students in this program with such great energy and love. Thanks to:

  • Turtle

  • Adobe
  • Cycle
  • Shasta

Please consider this request and add us to your monthly budget. These ongoing gifts allow us to plan confidently as we seek new ways to serve our community and share the love of Christ. Click HERE for more information and to sign up.

You Can Provide for a Camp NEED!

Walcamp has additional needs that are not always covered by our monthly budget. Examples include items for programs like outdoor education, youth group retreats, and summer overnight and day camps. Other items may be for use in guest services, the office, or general camp improvements. Please consider purchasing any of these items and helping us continue to provide outstanding programs and services to all of our guests.
