We Will Go Summer Camp

Camp Hope 2018 

 

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing that by the power of the Holy Spirit you will

abound in hope and overflow with confidence in His promises.” Romans 15:13

 

What is The Fountain on Farish?

The Fountain on Farish was owned by the YMCA and was leased to We Will Go Ministries for a few years
before God provided a way for We Will Go to purchase the facility! We desire for the Fountain to be known as
a Christ-centered building, serving downtown Jackson and more. It is our desire to steward this multi-
functional resource well. We have asked Jesus to expand and multiply our dreams and expectations of what is
possible with Him!

The Fountain on Farish is currently open weekdays from 8-5 PM, with activities for all ages!

 Hands & Feet Ministry: Tuesday-Thursday 8:00-9:30 AM is open to all friends and neighbors
who are in need of prayer, food, clothing, etc.
 Fountain Afternoons: weekdays 3-5:00PM is open to share Jesus with our neighbors. We
open the gym for basketball, teach the Bible, homework, playgrounds,
swimming etc.
 Special events: mission teams, volunteers, small groups, etc. (by appointment)
 The Urban ‘Sip: weekdays 7-5:00PM is open as a Christ-centered coffee shop
and retail store, where signature drinks and WWG Arts products are sold daily

 Housing: sectioned off for missionary and hospitality use
 Gardens: year-round garden/nursery

We would love to offer you and your church/ministry/group an amazing opportunity to be a part of reaching

Jackson, Mississippi with the Gospel of Christ!

What is our goal for Summer 2018?

 We hope to run an 8-week summer day camp with your help! Camp Hope is a Christ-centered camp
where children and youth can encounter the love of Christ, and be ‘fed’ in the Father’s House daily!
 Our desire is to build relationships with other ministries/partners to operate fully as the body of Christ!

What will Camp Hope structure look like?

 Camp Hope will be open weekdays from 8AM-5PM at the Fountain on Farish!
 Camp Hope will be open to all kids & teens currently enrolled in school! Ages 5-11 will be on location for
the entirety of each day. Ages 12+ will potentially begin at the Fountain, and then participate in a soft-
skills training course following (estimated from 9AM-2PM), before closing at the Fountain!
 Everyone attending Camp Hope will have the opportunity to encounter Jesus’ love daily!
 We will provide 2 meals a day, breakfast and lunch, and two snacks.

Summer Interns Needed!

 In order to fully staff Camp Hope, we are looking for a minimum of 6 Summer Interns ages 18+ who have
a heart for missions and are interested in leading and mentoring through Camp Hope 2018!
 Summer Interns would live on one of the WWG bases and go through the process of applying to serve at
We Will Go, just as long-term missionaries do!

Duration of Summer Internship: May, 24-August 4, 2018
 The cost for participating in WWG Summer Internship is $1,500, we recommend interns to find
sponsorship ahead of time!

What does sponsoring Camp Hope look like?

We are asking each ministry or partner to seek the Lord about what sponsoring Camp Hope looks like for you!
You don’t have to sponsor alone! You can support in many ways, below is a list of “Sponsorship Levels” that are

available as a guide!

Level 1: Facilitate a Week of Camp Hope

 All 8 weeks of Camp Hope will be hosted at We Will Go Ministries at the Fountain on Farish
 Camp Hope Dates: June 4 – August 3 rd , 2018
 Churches/partners would be facilitating 5 days of a VBS-style program: Christ-centered lessons,
activities, worship, etc. (schedule will be given by WWG Missionaries)
 Bringing crafts, leading in worship, games & activities, lots of JESUS’ joy and love
 Bringing volunteers/team/leaders to serve
 Ideally we suggest 3-5 leaders per age group = 10-15 volunteers to come from each group
 We would require teams to participate in Camp Hope from (8AM-2PM)
 If the number of volunteers is higher than 15, we will consider ministry schedule rotations -
- so all areas are covered well & that the volunteers don’t outweigh campers
 WWG Missionaries & Summer Interns will be on site during the entirety of Camp Hope –
leading, hosting, facilitating discipline, serving, mentoring, etc.
 We also ask that each church/sponsor commitment to providing 1 snack daily for campers.

Level 2: Sponsor Financially

 Sponsor an entire week of Camp Hope, covering cost of facilities, expenses, food, etc. Suggested:
$50 a child per week; $50 per child X 90 kids max = $4,500 per week
 Sponsor a child to attend Camp Hope for the entire summer! This requires a $400 scholarship for
one child to fully participate!
 We’re praying for approx. 20-30 kids/teens per track = availability 90 children total
 We are charging a camp participation fee of $80 per child to each parent/care giver
minimum with scholarships available to families that need them! (This equals $2 a day ‘fee’
to attend Camp Hope with all expenses, food, materials, etc. Included.)

 Sponsor a full-time WWG Missionary: WWG Missionary (6 Month Commitment) = $3,000
 Sponsor a summer intern to serve at WWG & Camp Hope: WWG Summer Internship = $1,500
 All our ‘staff’ live by faith, so this would be a great opportunity to sow into them, and the
vision God has put on their heart for downtown Jackson.

Level 3: Donate Time & Resources

 Sign up to volunteer on weekly basis, serving alongside WWG missionaries and WWG summer
interns – would require weekly commitment for the duration of Camp Hope
 Donate materials needed for various craft, sport, or Bible lesson activities
 Sponsor a Camp Hope "Fun Friday" by helping to financially support and/or organize special
events and field trips to local museums, venues, or activities!

Thank you so much for your consideration of Camp Hope 2018! We look forward to running together with you, to

Sip coffee shop, meet with your staff/team, and answer questions. We would love your response as soon as

JESUS is worthy,
