Camping Scholarships for 9 Students:  Nine at risk children ages 8-12 years old will experience one week of camping involving high adventure, lots of fun, great food and excellent speakers who understand and respect how to translate God’s love.   Innocent Voices is partnering with Today’s Youth Matter to fund a cabin of children and training for one of the three cabin leaders.  The children come mainly from Richmond, Oakland, San Jose and East Palo Alto, and 50% of them are or have been in foster care.  The goal of the camping experience is to embrace their need for belonging, accept who they are and will become, engage their imaginations so they can discover how God’s story intersects with theirs, affirm their worth and mobilize them to become leaders.
