Tuition Fees Getting You Down?

Raise additional support through our Support Raising Program

All staff are encouraged to utilize the Support program as financial support for their summer ministry. Each staff finds prospective donors (25-50) family, friends, relatives and their home church for ministry support.

Camp Arnes will assist staff by providing an informational letter, which will be mailed to each potential supporter along with a personal letter from you.

Each staff member is eligible to receive a maximum of $600/week plus any honorarium paid by Camp Arnes. All donations must be made to Camp Arnes. Please be aware that all support donations will be subject to an 10% deduction for Employment Insurance and Canada Pension Plan. In addition, the employee will be deducted for their portion of Employment Insurance, Canada Pension Plan and Income Tax as required by CRA. Details of the Support program will be provided to all staff.

When asked, most people support Christian young people serving at summer camp. This program has worked well for many of our summer staff.

Prayer Partners

Prayer is vital for Camp ministry. For this reason, we ask you to find ten prayer partners who will commit to praying for you regularly.
