The Campership Legacy Fund
Reaching thousands, one at a time
â€œIf a man owns a hundred sheep and leave the 99 and go to look for the
one wanders away, will he not one that wandered away?” — JESUS CHRIST M AT T H E W 1 8 : 1 2
Our Plan Young Life is working to double our reach from 1 million to 2 million kids annually through our Reaching a World of kids program.
“Young Life’s Reaching a World of Kids initiative is a worldwide movement to extend our reach from one million to two million kids annually. We know that this will happen only through the power and provision of the One who loves every kid everywhere. We also know that we’ll need great friends to reach this goal – friends whose legacy will be their desire to give kids the opportunity to experience and understand the love of Christ at Young Life camp. Thank you for your partnership in this great endeavor.” — Denny Rydberg, Young Life President
Go into all the world and preach the good news â€Ś MARK 16:15
The Problem The enemy is winning the battle for their attention. They are surrounded by the â€œwhitenoiseâ€? and the chaos of life.
Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear â€Ś M AT T H E W 1 3 : 1 3
Godâ€™s Provision The solution to the problem is Jesus. Young Life camp provides the opportunity for kids to STOP, and consider the truth about Jesus. Itâ€™s more important today than ever.
Be still and know that I am God. PSALM
Investment Promise #1: Itâ€™s Strategic. We are going after first-time, UNREACHED kids that may never have the chance to go to camp unless we help. For many kids, the barrier is purely financial.
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. J O H N 1 5 : 1 3
Investment Promise #2: Itâ€™s Intentional. Kids are recommended by their leaders through a written application process and reviewed at the local and regional levels.
Whatever you did for the least of these, you did unto me. M A T T H E W 2 5 : 4 0
