Rooted in Faith, Growing to Serve

Crossways Camping Ministries Capital Campaign

The Rooted in Faith campaign was first dreamed up 4+ years ago, when staff started to think about the building projects that would help camp move into a strong future. The fundraising goal was set at $1.8 million. We fell a little short of that, but we still raised 1.2 million dollars. 

An Ad Hoc committee made up from staff and members of each camp's Site Team has worked hard to prioritize projects so we can accomplish as much as possible but stay within our new budget. 

It's not too late to contribute. We are still accepting one-time contributions or pledges to help us accomplish as many projects as possible.
