Spend the days navigating your way through the ropes course, and soaring down the zip line. There’s also plenty of time to play Frisbee, basketball and volleyball, make crafts, and hang at the pool.  All of this, along with plenty of surprises, awaits you at Camp Buckner.

Camp Buckner FAQ's - details are tentative and based on trips in previous years

We are committed to each and every kid who desires to go to Young Life Camp getting to go.  We work hard with kids and families who need financial assistance to come up with the cost of camp.  There are fundraising and scholarship opportunities for those in need.  We offer this fundraiser:

 The Serv-a-thon is designed to help Lafayette area students raise funds for their participation on a WyldLife/Young Life summer trip while at the same time helping agencies who work with people who are in need in the community.  Students collect donations for their service to the community and then volunteer with a local relief agency.  The donations help send students on a WyldLife summer trip and the students give back to the community. This is a winner for everyone.  We prefer this to a bake sale, car wash, selling candy, etc. because it is a great opportunity for us to serve those who need help in our community and hard work helps build character! All sponsorships are tax deductible.

Action steps: Print out sponsorship letters and form letters (see below), and send them out to relatives, friends, etc.  Show up to the Serv-a-thon work project on TBA (check with your WyldLife leader for details).  Then send thank you notes to those who respond/sponsor.  The letter details what the Serv-a-Thon is and how it works, but you may edit it if you feel like adding a personal touch.

The Serv-a-thon work project will take place in Spring, typically on a Saturday from 8am-11:30am.  Please let us know if you are interested in participating in the Serv-a-Thon.  We will be sure to communicate all of the important details!  If you did not attend the scheduled Serv-a-thon work day but still want to earn money through the Serv-a-thon, arrange a 3-hour service project on your own, get it approved by a YL leader, and after working it, get the "Serv-a-thon on your own" form filled out and send it to the YL office.
