Weeks 3, 4 & 5—Angel Tree Summer Camp
Help kids find Jesus through summer camp. Every child has a story.
For 2.7 million children in the U.S., that story may be filled with the abandonment, loneliness, and shame that come from having a mom or dad in prison. For many, it may also include following their parents down the same destructive road to incarceration. Angel Tree®, a program of Prison Fellowship, reaches out to the children of prisoners and their families with the love of Christ. Every Angel Tree parent’s family is also given access to a free, easy-to-read copy of the Bible (available in English or Spanish). And while Angel Tree starts with a Christmas gift, the connection doesn’t end in December. All year, Angel Tree helps to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of families in your community. From Angel Tree Camping® to Angel Tree Sports Clinic™ to mentoring opportunities, there are so many ways for churches, organizations, and volunteers to have a lasting impact on the lives of Angel Tree children, their caregivers, and their families!
One way Christ Memorial will help to extend the Angel Tree ministry is to donate funds to allow prisoners’ children to attend a Christian summer camp. Camp can be one of the most life-changing experiences that children of incarcerated parents have. Camp gives children an opportunity to have fun, fellowship with their peers, build relationships with caring camp counselors, and experience the love of God in the great outdoors. At camp many children will make a first-time decision to trust in Jesus Christ or deepen their commitment to Him.
