Pray for kids at camp.

Campers are greeted by staff as they get off the bus.

Ryan Brown, UGM Youth Outreach Director, said he loves knowing that people are praying for UGM Camp: “Prayer is so crucial! Many of the kids are in crisis and in spiritual battles – even if they don’t know it. Pray that the work of the Lord is present in their lives all year, with camp serving as a crucial stop along the way. We are praying that through kids’ lives changing, so will families, neighborhoods, and even a generation.”

A week at camp is often the highlight of a child’s summer, but when the bus pulls off the property to head back home, that doesn’t need to be the end. We want UGM Camp to be the beginning for our campers – the beginning of loving and trusting relationships with others and, specifically, a relationship with God.

The staff and children have had a great summer at UGM Camp – swimming, fishing, and praising Jesus. With one month left, will you please pray for the kids who have already come to camp this summer and the kids who are coming this month?

Pray they see beyond their circumstances.

Pray they experience God’s love.

Pray for lasting relationships.

Pray that kids come to know Jesus.
