Packs & Paddles Benefit Fundraiser 2022

Mar 2, 2022Events, Support

Kids Need Camp.

This statement has never rang more true than in the midst of our ongoing pandemic. We have been grateful to be able to provide kids with safe community and exciting outdoor adventure in the midst of so much disappointment and isolation.

In summer 2021, Amnicon was grateful to welcome more participants into Grace-filled adventure than we have in nearly ten years. Summer 2022 is shaping up to potentially be even busier. That means more kids finding safe-space; more kids growing in new and renewed relationships; more kids feeling accepted and claimed as capable and loveable children of God.

Your bids and donations through Packs & Paddles go directly to our Campership Fund to provide the needed camper scholarships to ensure more kids have these opportunities. 

Thank you for your help in making Amnicon adventures possible.
