Friends of Van-Es
Friends of Van Es is a group that provides opportunities for individuals and groups to support and enhance the ministry of Van Es through a commitment of time, talent, prayer, and money. Financial donations from Friends play a critical role in the maintenance and expansion of Camp Van Es' ministry.
In the recent past Friends have funded: the building of cabin #7, the relining for the pool, the purchase of a new lawn mower, the building of a sidewalk and the planting of trees. The friends and volunteers are the backbone of our summer camping programs, they give their time to be counselors, nurses, directors, and those who give program support, add creativity, expertise, encouragement and love.
Friends are also ambassadors to our churches and communities throughout the District. They play a vital role in communicating with congregations about upcoming events and news at Van Es. They recruit campers, counselors, and extend our services to groups, who rent our facilities.
Most importantly, your prayers help to discern and understand God's will for the leaders, staff, volunteers, users, and future promise of this special place as we continue in this vital ministry of our Canadian District.
Please consider continuing your support by being a Friend of Van Es. We need your help to make our plan a reality. And if you haven't volunteered with us yet, consider our growing ministry and the part you can play in our future.
Together we can make a real difference .
