The Extravaganza Sends a Bunch of Kids to Camp!

ExtravaganzaOn Saturday, August 28, a lot of long-time friends of the Camp, along with a few new ones, showed up to bid against one another as item after item went on the auction block. Clowns, face painting, rides and activities for the kids, and delicious food prepared by the Camp’s Food Service staff, all combined to make for a wonderful, festive atmosphere.

By the end of the day, more than $54,000 had been raised for the Camp’s Kids 2 Camp Scholarship fund!

By the end of this year, over $142,000 will have been given out in scholarships, helping bring nearly 1500 campers to WBC. We are committed to not turning any child away from camp, especially if the reason they can’t attend is financial. But, it requires funds for scholarships to make this possible. Each year, many people help provide the financial resources so this can happen.

We are extremely grateful to each of our auction donors who gave items to be placed in the auctions. Click here for a list of individuals and business that donated items for the August Extravaganza 2010.

We also want to thank all of the very generous bidders who came to the event. Special thanks go to the people who gave the $11,000 matching funds for the Kids 2 Camp program that doubled the dollars given for scholarships at the auction: Vital-Soft of Stanwood and owner John Overton, Nick and Liesl Gelotte, and two anonymous donors.

More than the money raised, the success of this event is measured in the lives of the kids who will get to go to camp because people came, participated, and gave. Mark your calendar now for the twelfth annual August Extravaganza on Saturday, August 27, 2011!

Exploring your worth in Christ

“For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hands and says to you, ‘do not fear, I will help you.'" Isaiah 41:13 What I do defines who I am. The choices I make define my value – for better or for worse. Are those things true? There are countless times in my life where I believed that what I did defined who I am. One poignant example occurred when I was 14 years old. I ...
