River Road Church’s Offering Goal: $8,000
“Camp gave me hope that no matter how bad things get, I am worthy of love, just because I am. My life has been saved because of all the love I received.” ~ former camper
“For [over] 100 years, Camp Alkulana has been a place for the children of Richmond to experience renewal in a safe, nurturing and fun environment. Each summer Alkulana serves nearly two hundred at-risk youth from the Richmond area, teaching them that they are loved unconditionally. Through healthy relationships with their counselors, a beautiful natural environment, daily Bible study, and opportunities to build their understanding of their self worth through adventure activities, campers can have transformative experience at Camp Alkulana.” ~ Director Beth Wright
To encourage as many children and youth as possible to attend, campers pay a very small percentage of the actual cost to attend a session at Camp Alkulana. The camp relies almost entirely on gifts from churches and individuals to fund its summer and year-round programs.
Now is the time to pray for the success of Camp Alkulana in the summer of 2016 and to give to the Camp Alkulana Offering. You may make donations online (select “Associational Mission” for the fund and put “Alkulana” as the memo) or by using a green envelope in the pew racks of the Sanctuary. [General instructions for online giving are available.]
