Camperships

Each summer, Skilton House Ministries helps CRT students to attend a week of Christian summer camp at Conestoga Bible Camp in the beautiful Lancaster area. This is perhaps the first time for these inner-city kids to experience and enjoy God’s creation outside of Philadelphia. During camp, they enjoy activities such as horseback riding, archery, crafts, swimming, and games–as well as Bible study, prayer time and devotions around the bonfire, and singing hymns and songs of praise to our Lord.  It is a wonderful time for fun and fellowship, building up their faith in their Savior. Every year, the kids return home eager to tell their friends about camp and looking forward to next year!

It does cost to send a child to camp, but thanks to our “Camperships,” we are able to help out parents by covering the cost. Our goal each year is to raise enough funds to fully sponsor every student who wants to attend camp. The cost is $150.00 per student. The past several years, we have sent a dozen or more students each year, and the numbers are rising! Any funds over the amount needed for camperships will be applied to transportation costs and to provide sleeping bags and other supplies to students who need them.
