Challenge extended!

Christ the King congregation in Combined Locks challenged you. All gifts designated “Where my gift is most needed” were matched, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000!

Good news: We have met this $50,000 challenge, and we are bringing back our staff! 

Better news: Four more churches* have come forward to provide matching funds, for the next $23,550 to come in!


The challenge extension means not only can we do the work needed to protect these sacred spaces, we can engage in new kinds of ministry. Digital campfires, small group retreats, volunteer work teams, progress on Capital Campaign projects… all of this becomes possible.

Because of Covid-19, most of our spring retreats and all of our summer programs were canceled. Campers are missing out on a summer of important ministry and faith development, but you can make sure they have this opportunity in 2021.


Give now, and your $100 donation becomes $200. Your $250 gift has $500 impact. The campers who are looking forward to Summer 2021 are counting on you.

Donate now, with our secure online portal or mail a check written for Crossways Camping Ministries to 912 N Oneida St Appleton, WI 54911.
