Thank you for supporting our many events this past year. You have helped us receive more than 1600 summer campers, train and mentor 70 plus staff, and host over 250 schools, church and para-church groups. This last year has seen several major successes such as establishing a capital fund and ending the year with a positive balance sheet. It is because of you that campers can continue to come to Camp Arnes.
All funds raised through our events help us keep our fees at a reasonable rate for all to afford, providing an encouraging setting to develop in Friendship & Faith, and in Leadership & Life. We look forward to continued growth in 2017, and seeing you at our next event.
