Over one hundred golfers gathered at the NJ National Golf Course in Basking Ridge, NJ, to golf for the purpose of giving the gift of camp to kids. The sun was out, the wind was brisk, and we had a great time, as you can see by the photos below. Through the generous donations of business, church and personal donations, over $30,000 was raised in hole sponsors that will be distributed to campers who cannot afford the cost of camp this summer. We have many families who have already filled out scholarship applications and we can now contact them and tell them they can come!
The need for scholarship money continues to grow. Our camp director Peter says, “Giving kids a week of camp is also giving them the opportunity to be loved, to be heard, and to feel that they belong… and the greatest gift we can ever give a child, however, is the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. For many kids, this will be the greatest week of their life. It will be the time they meet Jesus. “
Camp Spofford hosts two golfing events each year, and the money raised goes to the Camper Scholarship Fund. The next event is the “Gourmet Golf Outing,” which will be held at Bretwood Golf Course in Keene, NH, on Friday, September 29th. Please visit our “Golf” page on our website to register for that.
