The ministry of Spruce Lake Retreat is supported through the gifts of friends, alumni campers, parents and others each year. These generous supporters are integral to God’s ministry at Spruce Lake of pointing each person toward a closer relationship with Jesus Christ through our five areas of ministry:
- Spruce Lake Wilderness Camp
- Spruce Lake Outdoor School
- Spruce Lake Day Camp
- Spruce Lake programmed retreats for adults and families
- Hosting retreats and events for groups, families and organizations
You can make a difference in the kingdom of God through your contribution to Spruce Lake Retreat, a contribution that participates in introducing Christ, building faith and growing disciples! Spruce Lake is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, owned by Franconia Mennonite Camp Association, Inc. Your donations are tax-deductible according to IRS regulations.
Here are some ways that you can be involved. (You may also go directly to make a secure online donation.)
Become a Living Tree Partner
For those who prefer to plan their charitable giving, you can become a Living Tree Partner by making a five-year faith promise to contribute a specific amount annually to general ministry needs. As a Partner, you will receive regular in-depth communication regarding the ministry progress at Spruce Lake. This also allows Spruce Lake to be good stewards of its resources by planning for long-term major needs such as roof replacements and heating/cooling system updates. Click here for contact info.
Sponsor a Camper
From its beginning, Spruce Lake has made a commitment that every camper who wants to attend Wilderness Camp will be able to do so, and each year provides Camperships to approximately 10 percent of our campers to fulfill this promise. You can help by contributing $280 to bring one more child to camp. Click here for our online giving page
