Camp Scholarships

Peak (Kids) and Summit (Students) Camps at Ponderosa Retreat and Conference Center

The Foundation feels strongly about assisting young people to attend Peak or Summit Camps, held at Ponderosa Retreat and Conference Center. Applicants must attend a Colorado Baptists church and be recommended by their church/pastor, which is also financially encouraging the child. After attending camp, the applicant agrees to furnish a testimony of “What Camp Meant to Me.”

Testimonies from Previous Attendees

“Thanks for letting us have camp.  The food was ‘out of the house’.  You truly put others first, then yourselves.  My favorite part was making new friends.  Thanks again and God bless you.”  -C.L.

“Thank you for the opportunity to experience your camp.  I had an amazing time.  It was nice of your camp to let people get together to get to know Jesus more.  I will always treasure the memories.”  -G.B.

“Thanks for giving our church the three scholarships to the PEAK Camp.  I loved being with my cabin friends, on a team with them, and sleeping in the same cabin with them.  I am looking forward to going to that camp again.” – D.G.

Testimony from Calvary Church

Although (the three) Calvary Baptist Church kids who went to PEAK Kids Camp in June (2012) didn’t quite understand where the scholarship money originated, they and their parents were very appreciative for the scholarships that came from the Baptist Foundation and Calvary Baptist.

I accepted Christ at the age of 12 at GA/Acteen camp.  For years, while I served as an urban missionary, I was blessed to take many children to camp during the summers.  This was the first time we’ve been able to take Calvary kids to camp simply because God provided through the scholarships.

The father of one of the children is currently deployed to Afghanistan and the other two are from single parent homes.  It was so great for (the 3 kids) to see peers who love Jesus… to see it is “cool” to live their lives for Him.

Thanks again for the opportunity to partner in discipling these children.

Serving Him together, J.P.
