I have been a volunteer for Champions For Life Camp for Five years and come from Florida to be part of this camp. We will again bring a team from our church this July to this camp. This camp is MY HEART just as children are. I was in foster care as a child and this is my way of giving back. Before I went to CFL I didn't understand how this camp worked, until I saw and felt it for myself. In just a few short days, these kids that come to this camp, are touched, as well as the adults. It brings me healing also just by being a part of this camp. What this camp does and the lives it touches is truly a God thing, a touch from God. God is at this camp and in the hearts of the leaders, the staff, and the volunteers. I could write a book on the experiences I have had in the five years I have been a part of this.
VIsion Hope and Champions For Life Kids' Camp is the real deal. I am currently in direct contact with a few of the kids that have graduated from camp and they are successfully pursuing a life of purpose and have a deep desire to come back to the camp to help other kids. Vision Hope changes lives for the better and their influence goes way beyond the weeks at camp.
I have many stories I could tell you, but what is the most important is this…. Vision HOPE has taken on the mission of helping abused, abandoned, and neglected children in our communities who can’t help themselves . They use the tool of Champions for Life Kids’ Camp as a way to give hope and a process for healing. Over 10 years ago, after volunteering at my very first week of camp ever, the director asked me what I thought. Though thoroughly exhausted, my exact words were “you have me – hook ~ line ~ and sinker!” It is that effective!!! I have happily volunteered for Vision Hope's Champions for Life Kids' Camp for over 10 years now because I have seen firsthand the difference in these hurting children’s lives as a result of just spending 1 week at camp. I am honored to volunteer my time and also financially donate to such an effective and worthy charity.
I have worked with Vision Hope doing the Champions for Life Kids Camp for 8 years and have seen the lives of children and adults transformed!! This year I was privileged to meet an awesome young woman who attended the camp as a child and after 14 years in the foster care system said " my best childhood memories were things at CFL camp. Like the mud slide and the polar bear swim!!" Keep making a difference in Michigan!
I have been a volunteer involved with Vision Hope as a staff member of Champions For Life Kids Camp for years. This is the most HANDS ON non-profts I have ever been a part of. They change the lives of children who have been abused, abandoned and neglected in our very own backyard. They are making such a difference in our community and it's such an honor to be able to serve along side them.
