Hi! I'm Gary Hunt, and for the past 42 years I've been a middle school pastor--yep, you read that right. Five years ago my wife and I founded Unclub Ministries, a ministry dedicated to reaching middle school students in Pinellas County. (Why "Unclub?" Because it's all you've ever wanted in a club--and more.)
We are supported solely by donors, and our budget is tight this year. We expect about about forty students to need scholarships in order to attend camp this year, and our budget has NO surplus. That's just the way it is.
We've been going to the wonderful Camp Kulaqua for nearly thirty years, and the place is incredible. Horseback riding, water slides, the "blob" in the natural spring, go-carts, a zoo, canoeing, a climbing wall, a zip line, and spiritual teaching . . . it's truly a life-changing experience for kids who attend. I wish I could let you hear from kids who have gone in the past--so many of them consider their week at Camp Kulaqua as the best week of their lives!
It costs us $350 to send a kid to camp. Some of our students are able to pay their way (with help from their parents, of course), but most are not. Won't you please help us send these wonderful kids to camp? Camp 2017 is July 30-Aug 2, and we need to let kids know that they can go by July 21.
After so many years in youth ministry, I know that sometimes kids need to get away so they can think about important things like life, God, and their futures. Camp can be that time away, when kids make decisions that will last for their lifetimes.
We will be so grateful if you can help us, and I know the kids will be forever changed. Please contribute if you can; any amount will be appreciated. God bless you for caring for others.
Rev. Gary Hunt
