The Youth Ministry of Calvary Chapel Placerville is having a rummage sale on Saturday, May 25 at 7 a.m. at the Thrift and Gift, 4516 Missouri Flat Road in Placerville.
All funds raised at this event will help finance Camp Calvary 2013.
Camp Calvary is a collaboration between Calvary Chapel of Placerville and A Ranch of Light, a local youth equestrian organization (aranchoflight.com). The partnership hosts a community outreach for local “at-risk” middle school-aged children in El Dorado County.
The second Camp Calvary is scheduled this summer from Tuesday, July 16 through Friday, July 19. It is a free youth horse camp hosted at Stone Cellar Campground, located off Ice House Road near Loon Lake in El Dorado County.
Camp Calvary 2013 will include many of the same events that made last year’s outing so successful.
Horsemanship activities, trail riding, rock climbing and repelling, archery, tightrope walking over a river, camping, fireside stories and activities, team building, craft projects, personal discipleship and mentoring by volunteers that is centered on the life-saving message of Jesus Christ.
Donations for the fundraiser rummage sale are welcome and have a three-fold benefit. Donors can do some spring cleaning, shoppers can find treasures and young people can have a life-changing experience.
Both Calvary Chapel of Placerville and the volunteers of A Ranch of Light hope to help more “at risk” children of El Dorado County with no charge to children or families. Camp Calvary 2013 is funded totally by donations.
