Rooted in Faith, Growing to Serve

Crossways Camping Ministries Capital Campaign

The plans include $1.81 million in projects (including campaign costs) to move the vision of Crossways Camping Ministries into reality. A challenge goal of an additional $886,236 is included to launch even more of the desired vision into reality. The campaign will be conducted with a leadership gift phase and a congregational phase.

Each site will receive significant improvements. Base Goal projects are funded if we are able to reach $1.8 million in gifts and CHALLENGE GOAL projects will be implemented if we are able to reach $2.5 million. In addition to the facility projects listed below, $100,000 will be invested in program supplies, vehicles, playground equipment, furnishings, and other supplies to enhance the guest experience. A 10% endowment contribution is included for the perpetual care of the facilities and a 15% contingency has been factored into prices to account for market fluctuation and unforeseen expenses.
