Christian Camps Reaching Out
Jenni Parker of AgapePress is reporting today that Christian camps throughout the Southeast - and some as far away as Wisconsin and Minnesota - are making their facilities and food supplies available to Hurricane Katrina evacuees, relief workers, law enforcement personnel and utility workers.

Bob Kobielush, president of Christian Camp and Conference Association (CCCA), says this generous assistance is for many camps "a natural extension of their hospitality and outreach to families all year round." He points out that many facilities are "making significant financial sacrifices, canceling paying guest groups indefinitely to house and feed Katrina's victims." CCCA is connecting those member camps, conference centers and retreat centers that are opening up their properties to evacuees with member organizations in other parts of the nation that wish to contribute funds and supplies. Information about the Christian camps' relief efforts is being regularly updated on the organization's website.
