The caliber of volunteers and donations of those who have tirelessly worked to help kids attend a camp that allows them the chance to change and and grow in the the love of Christ and in following the path is humbling and wonderful. I have seen kids who have become better and stronger people. The camp counselors and staff are dedicated to providing an environment of learning and fun for all youth.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The camp has helped kids form friendships, and to form a personal relationship with Christ.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have a longer camp.

As a founding board member, I have been involved with 2000 Strong Youth for Christ at an intimate and personal level. All board members as well as others involved are volunteers, and almost all of us have regular jobs. Hence, we could probably all say that we wish we could have given this endeavor more time, but in reality and in all honesty, I believe that I and others have sacrificed and given about as much as humanly possible. We're planning for our 5th annual summer camp right now, and it's an awesome feeling to be able to look back and see what has been accomplished. Having said that, I also know I can say that I could have always done more, and we might have done things differently. It is my heartfelt belief that we'll never really comprehend the much of the fruits of our labors; however, what we do see excites us and motivates us to do even more for the young people who are the recipients of the work of 2000 Strong.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

. . . feedback from our campers, staff and parents, and the feeling and edification that comes from knowing one has been part of something bigger than oneself.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

. . . find a way to fund-raise greater financial contributions so that every young person who wants to attend camp can come regardless of personal financial situations.

2000 Strong Youth for Christ is dedicated to bringing youth to the knowledge and teachings of Jesus Christ found in the scriptures. Our organization has been privileged to serve youth at the annual 2000 Strong Adventure Camp which provides the opportunity to have fun and build friendship bonds that will last a lifetime. The youth become each other's support group and they help each other stay committed to living a life of integrity and honesty.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

It has been my privilidge to witness youth commit their lives to Jesus Christ and find peace. Most of the youth 2000 Strong Youth for Christ serve have never had the opportunity to enjoy a camping experience with other youth.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to sponsor more youth to the annual Adventure Camp.
