Buffalo Mountain Camp's success in providing
memorable and life-changing camping and retreat experiences relies on
the prayerful support and generosity of our friends. This
generosity is shown in many ways - whether through financial support,
material donations or giving of your time by coming to work at camp -
and we are very grateful for your support.
In Luke 6:38 the Bible tells us:
"Give and it will be given to you.
A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured
into your lap.
For with the measure you choose, it
will be measured to you."
If you feel led to support camp in some way, read
on! There are many ways to partner with us in providing Christian
camping to all that come to the mountain.
Our Biggest Need
More than money, more than material donations, we
need your PRAYERS. We ask for prayer in:
Recently, we have started offering supporters the option of
making a donation in memory or honor of a loved one or group. We simply
ask that you include the name and address of the person you are making the
donation in honor or memory of. Upon receiving your support, we will then
send a card notifying the person that a donation was made. Donations of
any amount are greatly appreciated and all donations are tax-deductible.
