Support Redberry Bible Camp
With summer camp fees only covering a small portion of the cost to attend camp, every year Redberry needs to raise an additional $300,000 in donations. As the year comes to a close we are behind in our donation goals for the year. If you are interested in supporting us have a look below for some example on how your donations will be used.
$20 - Feed a camper for one day
Redberry has become synonymous with great food. A donation of $20 ensures a camper gets to enjoy one day of fantastic meals.
$30 - Feed a Horse
Our campers are not the only ones who need to eat, so do our 4 legged friends. A donation of $30 provides a bale of hay.
$50 - One week of arrows
One of the camps most popular skills is archery, unfortunately arrows are not cheap. $50 ensures that the camp is supplied with enough arrows for one week.
$100 - Climbing gear
Another favourite camp activity is the climbing wall. Ensuring safety is paramount to this skill which means new climbing gear is purchased every year. A donation of $100 purchases various climbing gear.
$300 - sponsor a child to go to camp
Sending a child to camp is expensive for many families. In 2016 the camp raised over $15,000 for kids to go to camp. $300 will send one child to camp.
$500 - support a summer staff member
In addition to room and board Redberry hopes to give honorariums to many of our summer staff. $500 supports food, lodging and a small honorarium for a staff member for 1 week.
Redberry Capital Projects
Any larger capital project that Redberry undertakes is fully funded through donations to the camp. In 2016 the camp board and staff created a new strategic plan that will bring the camp into the next decade and beyond. Capital projects are a large part of this new plan. Some of those projects include:
- New shower & washroom building
- New storage facilities
- New year round meeting spaces
- Long term underground infrastructure
- Rebuilt and relocated horse corrals
