One of Pennsylvania’s finest camping ministries for at-risk youth.
The program is designed specifically to minister to the needs of kids from disadvantaged backgrounds.
A close counselor-to-camper ratio ensures that our campers will get the individualized attention they need and crave. The highly relational program ministers to “survivors” of the next generation, unlike many camp programs that cater to the “achievers”. The hope Jesus Christ offers is presented in a winsome way, and many children find Christ each summer at camp. Activities at camp instill self-confidence and help our campers develop team-building and relational skills.
Perhaps one reason for Promise Camp’s success is the unique makeup of our kids.
Camp is usually our children’s first opportunity to go away from home, even if only for a week. This is often the first time in their lives children start to form their own ideas and plan their own lives – what they believe, what they aspire to, what kind of life they want to lead. They’re asking the questions for which only Jesus has the answers.
