This past weekend, I had the chance to visit our friends at Ontario Street Baptist Church in Stratford.  For the past few years, they have "adopted" a local public school.  They support school events and fundraisers, provide clothing and items for families in need, volunteer at the school, and pray for the students and teachers regularly.  They also raise money to send a few lucky kids to Camp Hermosa each summer.  It was great to be able to share with the church some stories of how camp had made a difference in these kids' lives.

The school's Principal came and shared with us how much it meant to her students to have the chance to go to camp.  She has seen real and lasting changes in many of them as a result of their time at camp and she is so grateful to the congregation at Ontario Street for their love and support of her students.

Following that came the big surprise.  The church presented Camp Hermosa with a donation of $20,000 for our cabin fund!  At the time I was speechless.  I still am.  I am so grateful to Ontario Street Baptist Church for their investment in Camp Hermosa that I had to share this with all of you.  We are so much closer to our fundraising goal as a result of their gift and kids' lives will be forever changed as a result.

It's humbling and inspiring to see the whole Hermosa community come together to accomplish big things.  I can't wait for all of you to see the new cabins!

New cabin update - Construction is starting!

Earlier this week we staked out locations for the new girls' cabins.  Tomorrow the excavator arrives to begin the foundation work!  We are gearing up for a building blitz between April 22 - May 4.  Volunteer teams are lined up, but more are always welcome!  We are looking for help both with building and with meal prep for the teams that will be staying at camp during construction.

If you can lend a hand for a day, a couple days, or a week or more, please click here to let us know! 

Come be a part of this fun and challenging opportunity as we build to meet the needs of campers for years to come!

If you would like to help us get closer to our fundraising goal, please donate using the link below.

We'll be posting periodic updates to our Facebook page and Instagram feed.  Follow along to see the progress!
