Camp Scholarship Made For Incredible Summer

Dear NACOP Donors,

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity in providing our daughter an amazing summer camp opportunity at Red Cliff Bible Camp! Campers had a great week of weather, including thunder and a hail storm the first day! Christina enjoyed the game times and night games along with chapel times the most. She was also able to go on a trail ride and to the lake for a day at the beach. Christina also met some friends that she plans to remain in contact with! Thank you again for making this incredible summer camp possible for her!

In gratitude,
Larry and Marcy K.
