Supporting the Ministry
Importance of Gifts
Camp Perkins exists because of the generous gifts of time, talents, and treasures of dedicated camp friends. Each year more than 8,000 hours and $80,000 are donated to continue the vision and ministry in service to our King. Thank you to all who tirelessly serve and generously give.
Fees charged to children and youth cover less than half of the cost of camp. Gifts from congregations and individuals enable us to keep camp affordable for all youth. Other youth need additional financial assistance in order to attend camp. No one is turned away from camp because of financial reasons.
- Provide campership to young people and families who need financial assistance to attend camp.

Campership Fund (For the Children Fund)
At Camp Perkins, we believe that every child, adult, and family should have the opportunity to experience Christ in community with others. Please do not let finances prevent this. The For the Children Campership Fund is set aside to help families with financial burdens send a child or bring their family to camp.
Each year Camp Perkins awards more than $15,000 in Camperships. Please assist us in providing this opportunity by contributing $25, $50, $100, or surprise us! To donate, click on the donate link above and specify your donation to the For the Children Fund. Thank you for your support.

Endowment FundCamp Perkins has a general endowment fund. The principle of these funds is protected while a portion of the interest/earnings will be distributed each year for ministry once the fund reaches $500,000. The long-term health of this ministry is dependent on the growth of these funds and new funds being added to them. Planned giving is one method that Camp Perkins receives new funds into its endowment. For more information on how you can make a gift to Camp Perkins, please contact our office.
