Girl with her arms raised

Strangers paid for my holiday

6th Sep 2018

“She was overwhelmed by the idea that complete strangers would pay for her to have a holiday.”

Over the years many people have very generously given to the Camp Bursary Fund to enable young people to attend camp who otherwise may not have been able to go. One leader gave us some wonderful feedback:

“We had a girl who came this year for whom it was her first holiday for nearly 10 years. She was struck by how friendly and caring everybody was, and didn’t want to go home at the end of the week. It was her first experience of biblical teaching and her first experience of live worship. She was given her first Bible, and was halfway through reading one of the gospels by the end of the week.

“She is desperate to come back next year, but was concerned that she wouldn’t be able to afford the fees - she presumed that she could only get assistance for one year. She was overwhelmed by the idea that complete strangers would pay for her to have a holiday.” 

If you would like to help a child or young person attend camp, please consider donating to our bursary fund here:
