Youth to Camp Barnabas

Ten youth will be serving as missionaries at Camp Barnabas July 8-15. At Camp Barnabas, perspectives are changed and disability is redefined. Our campers are empowered by the love, acceptance and encouragement they receive during their week at camp. Through adaptive activities, our campers are told “yes”. They can be normal for a week. Our missionaries help to give our campers experiences that will impact them forever. They leave with a new friend and a changed life. Camp Barnabas goes beyond just a week of camp; it becomes life-changing. Please pray for our teens as they serve in this way.

You can send notes of encouragement to our teens by emailing and including their name in the subject line. The teens serving are: Dawson Allen, Anna Allen, Kate Rollins, Anna Ratchford, Sebastian Brown, Tori Long, Alex Childs, Anna Childs, Helena Condon, and Elizabeth Shreves.
