Join us for 12 days of giving, December 1 to 12. Our goal is to raise $1,000 each day to help us reach our six month goal of $200,000.
Your continued and generous partnership in ministry will ensure we reach next summer, and the next, so campers and counselors may return once again to sing by a campfire, run through the fields, swim in the lake, look up at the stars, and build community together - for decades to come.
The Lord has provided us with wonderful gifts, that we may proclaim the gospel boldly through Caroline Furnace Lutheran Camp & Retreat Center.
Give the kind of holiday cheer that is sure to last all year long!
