Matching Grant

New Life Camp’s 2020 Focus

With a deep commitment from one of our generous partners, New Life Camp is excited to announce that we have been offered a Matching Grant of $100,000.  This grant will be from November 1, 2019 through April 30, 2020.  The match applies to all donations given by new donors or donors that have not given since December 31, 2017.  For those of you who are already partnering with New Life Camp in the area of financial giving, please continue reading. We need your help as well.

With growth comes an increase in demand, and we’ve experienced this firsthand.  There are more children and families now than ever before who want to participate in our programs.  While we’ve efficiently utilized our current facilities and resources, the demand to participate in each of these programs is now far greater than we can currently accommodate. 

We now have opportunities to extend our camping experience for students on year round schedules.  We’ve already begun the process of building a team of staff members to replicate our Summer Camp program in order to extend it into the fall through a proposed Track Out Camp Program.  We share the desire of our matching grant partners in wanting to bring new campers to New Life Camp and we can’t think of a better way than to open up our facilities to children who have not been able to participate in summer camp due to capacity issues.  A portion of the matching gifts will go toward staffing and program development needed to start-up the Track Out Program.  Once underway, we expect the programs to cover the ongoing staffing needs.

This start-up will bring great returns as we continue our mission.

Many of those who are part of our Summer Camp program are from families who are unable to afford a full week of camp.  As we are reminded in Mark 16:15 “And He said, ‘ Go, into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.'”  God has brought the world to us through these young children who hear the gospel every time they visit camp.  They couldn’t be here if these scholarships weren’t available. In addition to the Track Out Program, we also would like to have more funds available to cover scholarships across various New Life Camp programs.

Your gift will enable us to increase our capacity through a proposed Track Out Camp Program and provide much needed scholarships to those who otherwise would not be able to come to camp.  More kids are coming to NLC than ever before, so there has never been a more important time to give.  If this match does not apply to you (you have given to New Life Camp within the past 2 years), we need your help as well.  Please share this information with anyone you feel may be interested in contributing to this match. We thank God that together we will continue to introduce children and their families to Jesus Christ and equip them to live lives that glorify God.
