Areas of Need

There is never a shortage of “needs” at a summer camp! From general “keep the lights on” kinds of needs to Scholarship funding for bringing more kids to camp, we depend on the generosity of our ministry partners. The Annual Fund helps us meet these needs and cast a vision for how Camp Brookwoods, Deer Run, and Moose River Outpost can best serve future generations of campers. Feel free to keep browsing for more details on these areas!

My gifts, your gifts, no matter the size, will help capture many, many more campers’ hearts for the Lord. The eternal impact of God’s work at Camp Brookwoods, Deer Run, and Moose River Outpost will echo in our world and around the campfire in Heaven.

Types of Funds

General Fund

We do our best to budget for ongoing maintenance expenses at camp; however, budgeting for the unexpected is more difficult. Dishwashers malfunction, equipment wears out ahead of its time, floors need to be painted, new bunk beds need to be purchased, and inclement weather damages property. A donation to the General Fund helps with these kinds of needs by giving camp the flexibility to utilize the funds where they can make the most impact. Thank you for considering a donation to this ministry!

Inspiration Point Endowment Fund

Currently, we have a limited scholarship budget, which is funded by annual donations and earnings from the Inspiration Point Endowment Fund. A gift to the Scholarship Fund or to the Endowment Fund brings kids to camp and allows us to continue our legacy of recruiting a broad array of young people—one that reflects the world we live in.

Scholarship Fund

We desire to maintain the highest possible camp experience, a costly goal. At the same time, we want to make the camp experience accessible to a broader group of campers and their families. The cost of tuition (the true cost of a camper attending camp) is burdensome for some families, including many of our alumni. That is why every summer, over 300 (about 1/3) of our campers receive financial assistance to attend camp. We love saying “YES” to those families who need that kind of help. Witnessing our campers growing in Christ is our greatest reward and most important outcome. We know this is what camp parents desire for their children.

COVID Impact

2020 has been a challenging year for everyone. Here at Camp Brookwoods, Deer Run, and Moose River Outpost, we are thankful that we could continue to fulfill our mission of creating communities where campers could experience the transforming love of Christ. Instead of ministering to our usual 1000+ campers, we hosted family groups in cabins at Brookwoods and Deer Run and for camping up at Moose River Outpost in Maine. We also experienced a significant disruption in our Conference Ministry, hosting only a fraction of our usual 7000 conference guests. All told, we experienced a $675,000 revenue shortfall due to COVID-19. We are thankful for our generous camp family who helped us bridge the gap for 2020. However, there are still additional expenses that we will incur moving forward because of the ongoing pandemic.  If you are able and would like to help, you can give directly here  or investigate other ways to give here.
