Forest Glen is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that relies heavily on the generosity of donors like you. We recognize that donating is a step of faith in trusting that Forest Glen will be faithful with your gift. Forest Glen is a member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
God has blessed us with continual growth in campers and finances throughout the years because of gracious people telling others about Forest Glen and through generous giving. Our team at Forest Glen consists of 30+ full-time staff, 30 part-time staff, 70 summer staff, and a host of volunteers to make each camper experience an opportunity to hear God’s voice. In 2013, over 30,100 campers became a part of Forest Glen’s Story, and we’re praying that the number keeps climbing!
Programs & Improvements made possible by your donations:
- Star of Hope Week - Each summer, your donations allow us to continue our partnership with Star of Hope, helping inner-city children & youth experience God at camp. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a majority of these kids to enjoy a camp environment and know the love of Christ through our dedication counselor staff. For many, Forest Glen is the place where they will swim in their first body of water or catch their first fish.
- Father/Son & Mother/Daughter Weekends - Forest Glen hosts 2 meaningful weekends each year that are meant to deepen the relationships of our guests. Your donations have helped us create these special memory-making retreats that have truly brought parents and kids closer to each other and closer to Christ.
- NEW Eternity Hall (estimated completion in Summer 2016) - Through your generosity, Forest Glen has been able to build a NEW large meeting room on North Shore. This new facility will give North Shore the ability to host over 500 people at once, allowing Forest Glen to better serve large-scale church ministries, schools, & groups.
- 2 NEW Dogwood Circle Cabins - After over 30 years of use, our Dogwood Circle cabins were in need of a long overdue makeover. Your financial contributions to Forest Glen has allowed us to tear down these old cabins & rebuild newer, larger, more modern replacements. These new cabins feature higher ceilings, more capacity for more campers, beautiful front porch seating areas, and full ADA compliance to serve our guests with physical disabilities. Not to mention, they sure do look cool!
There are several ways you can give financially to support Forest Glen Camps. Additions and improvements made at Forest Glen are possible by the generosity of those who support the ministry monetarily.
Your financial partnership helps us change lives at camp, and ultimately makes it possible for us to continue to provide an environment where people can experience God.
