I hope this letter finds you enjoying a beautiful St. John’s Tide!
I am writing to ask if you might consider supporting a child to attend The Christian Community Camp Harmony Lake this summer. The camp, which has thrived for 22 years under the directorship of Rev. Carol Kelly, and is celebrating a 50th anniversary this summer, has been an anchor in the lives of many young people as they move from camper to counselor to supporter. It is truly a work towards the future in this way, and one that is filled with love, friendship, abiding connection and support of young people connected to our movement of religious renewal.
This summer, the camp finds itself in a challenging time. It was forced to close during Covid-19, and it lost its home in Maine. It is now reopening in a beautiful spot in PA, and slowly recovering momentum. Many of the children enrolled are in families who are unable to pay the fees in this time of recession and strain. But we have not turned them away!
We are asking those who can, to donate to cover the cost, or part of the cost, for a child to attend camp this summer. The cost for one child is $1,600. We need to raise scholarship funds to cover 10 children to attend camp.
Please know that your contribution will provide lasting support for a young person from one of our communities to experience the respite, love, spiritual sustenance and connectedness of The Christian Community in a difficult time.
Please make checks out to The Christian Community Camp and mail to 10 Green River Lane; Hillsdale, NY 12529, attn Carol Kelly. Please write camp scholarship in the memo line.
Donations to the camp are tax deductible.
Many Thanks and Blessings,
On behalf of Revs. Carol Kelly, Anna Silber and the Camp Harmony Lake team.
