Giving Tuesday 2018 - Reaching Higher Toward the Future
November 01, 2018
Campers experience lifelong impact when they come to camp, try new things, and learn together as a community. You can invest in the lives of campers by helping us build a high ropes course at Lake Lucerne.
Our priority in planning this high ropes course was to focus on our mission to build community and equip disciples. We’ve worked with ABEE, Inc. — Wisconsin-based leaders in the high ropes industry — to design unique elements that other high ropes courses don’t have. Some elements of our course will allow up to eight participants at the same time (instead of the usual one or two), working together on the skills of teamwork, creative problem solving, resiliency, and positive communication.
Ultimately, your excitement for our camps and your generosity will determine the size and scope of the project. Our first goal is to raise $30,000 on Giving Tuesday. This amount will allow us to get started by building a 40-foot climbing wall and a 300-foot zipline!
Thanks to the generosity of lifelong Lake Lucerne supporters, we already have a $10,000 challenge grant to help us get off the ground. That means on Giving Tuesday, November 27, your gifts (up to $10,000) will be doubled.
When we pass the initial $30,000 goal, we work toward raising the funds to build the additional team challenge elements. These elements are brand new, never-built-before concepts that allow groups to test and grow their skills together. We’re looking forward to announcing new goals throughout Giving Tuesday.
Mark your calendars now for the Tuesday after Thanksgiving — November 27, 2018. Continue to watch Facebook and email for more information on how to give and to make sure your donation can be doubled.
Together we will all reach higher for the future!
