ABOUT US

OUR MISSION

Our mission is simply to follow Jesus into places of poverty, not only physical poverty but also spiritual poverty and help to relieve the suffering. Often when we get there and begin meeting the needs of the physically impoverished, we often find that we are the ones who are spiritually impoverished. Those that are being served always deliver a blessing to those that are doing the serving.

We are so fortunate in America that it is sometimes difficult to believe that other Americans live without adequate food, shelter and clothing. Maybe we can imagine those conditions existing in the ghettos of the inner city but what about within walking distance of our own houses or churches. Poverty is closer than we can imagine. We drive by it everyday without ever seeing it. We have become desensitized to it.

At Camp 151, we seek to educate others on the existence of poverty and how to make a difference by immersing ourselves in it. We seek to train young people in working with their hands and experiencing the satisfaction of seeing a difficult job come to completion knowing that someone's life is better because of you.

ONE week of service is not enough. Jesus calls us to a lifestyle of serving others in his name. What will you do with the other FIFTY ONE weeks of your year; ONE-FIFTY-ONE.
