The summer camp program normally enrolls 140-150 children each year. The children that attend are from various communities throughout the city. Many parents cannot afford to send their children to other camps in the city and what New Life summer camp offers is “Hope” for those parents in need. A majority of the children attend the camp for free. The summer camp is a Christian environment, where we take children on field trips; most of the trips are without charge. We teach bible education, were we deal with avoiding gangs, teenage pregnancy, and negative behavior. We also take about 100 children camping for a whole week to camp Garner Creek in Dickson, TN. There are a majority of the children’s parents that cannot afford to pay for them to attend New Life summer camp. We solicit funds by allotting our personal funds and donations. During the summer, we employ 8 staff members and 3 volunteers. We are beginning to see a lot of changes in the children. Teenage pregnancy and gang activity has decreased tremendously. The children are able to recite over 26 bible verses by memory and there are many more accomplishments being made each year. We have so many children in need that its hard when we have to turn them away because we are outgoing our facility and it is limited to only so many.
The estimated cost to run this program for the summer is about $40,000.00.
