Support our growing Day Camp and Adventure Camp ministries!

For over 54 years, Pathways has impacted the faith formation of young people and retreaters and our intent is to continue to do so for generations to come. We are grateful for all the support we have received over the years and hope to continue to have your support as we look ahead to the future! Over the next few years, we hope to update facilities and resources for all our campers, families, and retreat guests. These updates range from septic systems to new cabins, transportation and more! This Give to the Max Day, we hope to encourage you to dream with us and support Pathways in our mission to "offer unique environments where God encounters people and renews them to live lives of love."

All funds from this year's Give to the Max Day, will go directly towards upgrading our fleet of vans to provide necessary transportation for our off-site programs. Safety is our number one priority and we need your help to keep providing safe transportation to our campers and staff of all ages. Our canoe trips and adventure programs are an essential part of Pathways' programming, and we need passenger vans to make these trips happen! The community formed and memories made through these outdoor adventures make a positive impact on the faith and lives of our campers.

 We also use vans to transport our counselor teams to day camps throughout the summer! Your donations will help us grow our fleet of vans so we can continue bringing our camping ministry to our synod's congregations and communities. This ministry is vital to many of our congregational partners and reaches a large number of campers each year. Bringing camp to these congregations has been a special part of our ministry for many years, and we look forward to the many years of continued day camp ministry ahead. 

Thank you for supporting Pathways as we positively impact the faith formation in people of all ages, both on-site at Camp Emmaus and off-site on adventures and Day Camps!  Your generosity and prayers make this ministry possible and we can't wait for what the future holds!
