Scholarships News for 2017

From Executive Director: David Campbell, 

smoresEach summer the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas hosts a summer camp for youth entering grades 3 – 12. While the gift of camp can last a lifetime it is often a challenge for many families to afford especially if they have several children. Camp All Saints scholarship fund is intended to insure that no camper will be turned away for financial reasons.  The goal of the fund is to match funds from the applicant, and their affiliated church. The tuition for one week of camp in 2017 is $450.00.  Last summer 139 campers received $51,205 in financial assistance.  While 88 of these campers came from our congregations, 51 campers arrived from other traditions or were in fact experiencing their first Christian Camp.

Thank you notes from some of our campers last summer:

  • First Year Camper:  “Dear Diocese of Dallas, Thank you for sponsoring Camp All Saints.  I am very thankful for letting me have this opportunity to get closer to God and other teens my age.  This was my first year at this camp and it was life changing for me.  Thank you Sooo much for this experience.”

  • Third Year Camper: “Dear EDOD, I thank you so so much for allowing me to have an amazing experience and just be able to come to Camp All Saints.  Camp All Saints has helped me grow spiritually with God.  This was my third year coming to Camp All Saints and I wish to come many more years.  Forever will this camp be my home and safe place where I am able to be myself.”

  • Sixth Year Camper:  “Thank you so much for making this camp a possibility for me every summer.  I love coming here to grow further in Christ and rekindle relationships with counselors, campers and literally everyone here.  Throughout the years, I’ve grown so much into who I am as a Christian and I’ve learned what having faith is, and I know I owe it to this camp and the amazing people here.  My sixth year at camp was a blast, and I cant wait for my seventh!!!! Thank you!!!”
