Help us raise $50,000 each year till our 50th Anniversary in 2021

Camp Chaparral will be celebrating its 50th year Anniversary in 2021. Our goal, until then, is to connect with every participant that has benefited from our ministry and provide a forum to reconnect friendships and bolster support.

Please look for us on Facebook or twitter and hash tag us at #CampChaparral to upload old camp photos or to tell your story of how Camp Chaparral was a blessing to you.

So what is the 50 for 50 Challenge?  Answer:  We are asking Camp Chaparral Alumni to give $50 or more each month or year until we reach our 50th Anniversary in 2021.  Our Financial Support target is $50,000 each year for the next four years (or $200,000 by 2021).  This money will help us upgrade and expand the ministry to reaching this next generation of children and students with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
