Warm Christian greetings from camp! Thank you for the prayers, love and support you’ve sent our way this year----another year that has been challenging for all of us. Even through the angst of two pandemic summers, we have found great joy, abundant blessings and experienced God’s love, protection and provision for us each and every day.
With all of the challenges Camp Don Lee has faced these past five years, I believe it’s vital to reflect on some of the many accomplishments we have made together through your generosity, much cooperation and hard work. We are most thankful that we have been able to deliver this ministry uninterrupted during the pandemic and with little disruption due to Hurricane Florence impacts.
While our facilities have never been better, we are focused on a number of initiatives to improve the experience for our guests and campers and enhance the comfort, beauty and sustainability of our property and ministry for years to come.
• Raising the funds to replace the two remaining block cabins on the girl’s side of camp
Our first effort will be a Friends of Camp Don Lee Cabin. Anyone who makes a designated donation of $500 or more will have their name listed in the cabin.
• Planting new trees to replace the ones lost through hurricanes and waste water upgrades
• Additional rocking chairs for cabin guests
• Camperships to send children and youth to summer camp
• Gifts designated where needed most during these challenging times.
With the holidays approaching, a gift in honor or memory of a loved one is a meaningful gift that will have a long lasting impact. For any gift amount, we will be pleased to send a special acknowledgment card to your loved one, announcing your gift. In addition, with gifts of $250 or more, you will receive one of our new holiday ornaments, which can be mailed to you or your loved one.
The ministry of Camp Don Lee is a legacy of love and faithfulness where children and youth experience God in new ways. I am always privileged to hear stories of camp from young and young-at-heart---memories of life-long friendships made in Christian fellowship, the deepening of faith and the love inspired for others by this special place. I pray you will consider a gift to this ministry that impacts lives in the name of Jesus Christ. May you and your family experience the many blessings of the Advent season.
We are so thankful for the hundreds of Don Lee donors who continue to help make this ministry possible. God bless you!
