One Mission. Many Ways to Serve.

Service Spotlight - Summer Camp

Have a blast this summer while making a difference in the lives of Appalachian youth! A week at Camp AJ or Camp Shawnee can transform a child’s life. They have an opportunity to spend time outdoors, learn skills, make friends, and discover a deeper relationship with God all in seven days. While all the activities are fun for the children, they also allow them to learn essential life skills such as leadership, safety, team building, self-esteem, and respect for others. Got questions?
