Dear Camp Friends,
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Each year North Georgia Christian Camp tries to accomplish one major project to improve our campground. Over the years, due to the tremendous support of our churches and friends of the camp, we have done some pretty amazing things to enhance the camp. This year, the camp executive board and our representatives have elected to push for a total renovation of our swimming pool and "canteen" (snack/game) area as that major project. This will include the re-plastering of our pool (an absolute necessity as the current pool surface has several large cracks and holes), the resurfacing of the pool deck (also cracking severely), the addition of a splash pad area for younger children (like a fountain/playground), the enlarging of our canteen area by adding a second floor that will increase the area for snacks, give us space to open a camp store, enable more space for groups to meet, give us more space for games/activities for the campers, and finally, a landscape makeover of the entire pool/canteen area (giving us more space for activities like shuffleboard, 9-square-in-the-air, horseshoes, and tetherball).
We are so excited about this project and how it will improve our camp for years to come! The estimated cost for all of this is $100,000. While we know this number may seem a bit daunting, we feel the improvements easily warrant the cost and that together, as a body of people who have seen the work the Lord has done through this camp, the goal will be absolutely achievable!
So, here's how you can help: please consider making a one-time gift to the camp to help us raise the needed funds to complete this project so that the camp does not have to go into debt. This past summer we had a record number of campers - 871. If each family donated $100, we would be well on our way to reaching our goal! We also encourage you to share this with your home church and ask that they help us with a one-time gift! If we can get a thousand people to give a hundred dollars, our goal is met. Already, one of our supporting churches has raised nearly $10,000 to help with this need!
Starting now and going through the end of the year, we will be accepting donations for the "Pool Project." You can send your gift to the camp (531 Christian Camp Lane, Clarkesville, GA 30523), or you can go to our website and donate by clicking on the "donate" tab at the top of the page. This will take you to our PlumFund (an online fundraiser much like GoFundMe) for this project and you can give via credit/debit or even by check/cash! (For check/cash, just enter the amount you wish to give, then click "Pay Offline" - you can print a receipt and then mail your gift in! The PlumFund URL is https://www.plumfund.com/crowdfunding/ngccpoolproject. Remember, all gifts are tax deductible as we are recognized as a non-profit organization by the IRS.
Thank you so much for helping us make a difference in the lives of everyone involved with the camp - children, teens, and adults alike.
