What is the Living Water Ministries $5k 5k?

Write up from Living Water Ministries


A week of camp can be a powerful experience in the life of a child. At camp kids learn to see Christ in each other and in themselves. At camp kids learn that God is a God of love as they experience giving and receiving that love in community. As our campers grow in faith, practice service, develop leadership and experience community they gain confidence and come to understand that they are partners with God in the work God is doing in the world.


Since 2015, Living Water Ministries has awarded over $213,000 in scholarships to over 660 participants! This bold outreach approach has allowed Living Water Ministries to remove financial obstacles to attendance, and inspired innovation as we've developed new programs and partnerships to create space for all of God's children. 


At Living Water Ministries we believe that a week of camp is a gift to be given, and that experiences of faith formation, service, leadership and community should be available to all. We're hoping you share that belief as well, and we invite you to support our scholarship fund. A $50 entry fee comes with a medal and a t-shirt, and the joy of knowing your participation will bolster our outreach efforts for our summer programs in 2022! Click for more
