Support Camp Hanover on September 30
Due to COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings, Camp Hanover has been unable to host guest groups, overnight retreats, or offer traditional summer camps since early March. As a result, the financial impact on this ministry has been significant. To strengthen its ministry now and set the course for the future, Camp Hanover is holding the Great Camp Give on September 30. They hope to raise $30,000.
