Thanksgiving is over, and the Christmas season is now in full swing! If you are like me, you’ve already had your tree up for about 3 weeks, and you’ve been listening to Christmas music since November 1. Today is Black Friday, and many of you are likely making your list and checking it twice as you hunt for bargains and scope out deals for all your gifts. I heard about this amazing gift idea last summer during a group leader listening session at camp. For Christmas this year, consider giving the kids on your list a $50 deposit to come to CentriKid Camps!
Okay, I realize that in some situations, a $50 deposit to camp might be a little bit anticlimactic, especially when kids are expecting the latest video game or toy, but this really could be a great gift idea to kids from grandparents! You could even consider allowing adults and families in your church to adopt kids for Christmas and pay the $50 deposit for them. This gift idea is something that truly could have an eternal impact on the life of a child.
This Christmas season, as you are purchasing gifts and sharing special moments with family, be sure to take time to reflect on the many true gifts in your life, and give thanks to God for the indescribable gift of his Son.
Even though camp is still about 6 months away, it is not too early to begin thinking about fundraising. Check out these previous posts for some great fundraising ideas.
