Since we cannot physically be together at Hidden Acres at this point, we wanted to do our best to bring camp to you. We realize it's not the same. Nothing can really compare to spending time singing, playing, laughing, making friends, hearing Screech Owls calling for the first time, watching the mist rise off of Lake Laverne early in the morning, or understanding for the first time that there is a God who loves us unconditionally. We will miss camp and we know that you will too.
So, we have put together a bag full of camp related gear to help you enjoy your summer at home and also stay connected to Hidden Acres. It will include:
- crafts like bracelet making supplies, origami paper, and more. Along with the supplies there will be instructions or videos to guide them in how to make all of the crafts.
- activities that your camper can do throughout the summer. Things like a "hacky sack", an exclusive HAC t-shirt with a tie dye kit, a length of rope with knot tying instructions and rope trick ideas and more!
- gear such as a headlamp, buff (tube scarf), notebook, pen and more. Lots of things that they can use to explore the natural world around them, both day and night.
- stories and encouragements to help your campers explore faith and the footprints that we leave on the earth as well as the footprints that Jesus left for us to follow after.
While we will be providing many great ideas and ways for your camper to enjoy their summer and connect to Hidden Acres, we are also exploring ways to raise funds for the camp and are offering CAMP-IN-A-BAG as a fundraiser. Since we have closed in March we have lost our rental group income and with no planned programs running this summer and uncertainty about the fall we are asking for your support. Each bag is priced at $125; that's $25 per day for five days of activities. You will also receive a $50 charitable income tax receipt for each bag purchased.
- There is a limited number of bags being offered for sale through the fundraiser and it will be first-come, first-served.
- You can expect to receive your bags around the middle of July.
- We need to know by JUNE 10 if you'd like to order a bag.
We also recognize the challenges that this pandemic has created and that not everyone is in a position to purchase CAMP-IN-A-BAG at this point. If that is you, contact us and we will see what we can work out.
Regardless of whether you purchase a bag or not, we thank you for your continued trust and support of Hidden Acres and its mission.
