The summer of 2014 we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the FUGE mission offering. Campers have given more than 10 million dollars over these years. This mission offering goes to support the work of both the International Mission Board (IMB) and the North American Mission Board (NAMB). These agencies have allowed us to target specific ministries with which students can identify.
The FUGE missions offering targets specific people groups and projects chosen by IMB and NAMB. Our partnership with NAMB focuses on the people of Canada. Click on CANADA below for more information about the work being done as a result of money donated by FUGE campers. Our partnership with IMB focuses on Sub-Saharan Africa and the vast needs in that region. Begin praying now about giving to these incredible ministries at camp this summer!
