Amnicon's Summer 2010 Updates

Dear Friends of Amnicon,

Thank you so much for your ongoing prayers and support of the ministry of this camp and all who come to it, as campers, as staff, as visitors.

We are now in the midst of our 2010 summer season! Every week, excited church and at-risk groups from across the state arrive at camp and are greeted with open arms by our summer guides. Adizokan Village, the newest ministry at Amnicon, is receiving its final preparations before its first groups arrive. A bear box, fire ring and water station have been added to the rustic family and group camp to help those who come feel taken care of.

You, as our invaluable friends and donors, are an integral part of making sure that all our youth, from all backgrounds, feel welcome here, as one camper has already shared this summer:

“I just wanted to take the time to say thank you. I’ve never been here before and already I feel like I’ve always come here. I feel like if ever things get tough for me I can close my eyes and remember this moment, how things are right now. You’ve made me feel so at home.”

Because of your ongoing support, Amnicon continues to make new collaborations with youth programs as well as maintain consistent relationships over many years. Many of the youth from these groups would not be able to afford an experience at Amnicon without the loving support and financial contributions of caring donors like you. Be assured your donation fosters profound differences in the lives of our individual campers as well as the larger communities where they will return.

Thank you again for your generous support!

In Christ,

Alana Butler Simon Gretton Co-director Co-director
