To help the fatherless experience God as Father and embrace their true identity as God’s child through faith in Jesus Christ.
“A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.”
Currently we are offering hope to fatherless children by providing opportunities for them to go to Christian Summer camp so they can unplug from the influences of the world and learn that God is longing to have a “special” relationship with them as promised in Psalm 68:5.
Love of the Father
Most of us have fathers. They teach us things… life skills, how to tie a tie, how to drive a car, how to succeed at that job interview, how to follow God. But what about the millions of kids whose father is absent? The statistics tell us that many of them will grow up to become drug addicts, school drop-outs, alcoholics or teen suicide stories. We believe God has a better plan.
Psalm68five partners with each of these camps to provide scholarships or “Camperships” (our term), to children growing up without a father. If you are interested in applying for a Psalm68five campership, please contact the camp closest to you for information about their process. For Camp Lake Louise, the link below will take you to their scholarship application page specifically for Psalm68five.
