Why a Sustaining Model of Support
Outdoor Ministry is a valuable component of faith development. Many pastors and church leaders point to time spent in outdoor ministries as fundamental to their faith development and pastoral call. Research also shows that spending more time in nature improves your health, happiness, and leads to a strong connection to the natural world.
The market rate for a week of camp is approximately $1,200. This cost is unrealistic for many families. We believe it is our responsibility as an outdoor ministry of the Presbyterian Church (USA) to make outdoor experiences available to ALL people. We are grateful to the churches who prioritize outdoor ministry and invest time, money, and prayers toward ensuring our children are connected to nature.
You can support outdoor ministry in several ways as an individual, congregation or organization. Camp Grier has four active funds that all function to improve outdoor access and the outdoor experiences for our youth.
The Capital Fund is used to improve the infrastructure of camp. Examples of projects include building renovations, trail development, equipment purchases, and new construction projects.
The Endowment Fund is focused on supporting the general operating budget of camp throughout the year as well as our Streets to Peaks Program which is a year around initiative in Asheville and Charlotte that helps make the outdoors available to youth with limited access to wilderness adventures.
The Scholarship Fund helps provide full and partial scholarship to deserving families from across the region each summer. Last year over 100 young people received a full or partial scholarship to attend camp.
If you are interested in supporting Camp Grier through these efforts you can contact us at 828-668-7793. Contributions can be mailed to Camp Grier PO Box 490 Old Fort, NC 28762 or you can donate on line.
