The Teepee Times   November 2019

But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Luke 18:16


Happy Thanksgiving to all our Campers, Parents, and Volunteer Staff! We pray you have a wonderful week celebrating and being with family.  We appreciate your daily prayers for the camp, its volunteers, the winter campers, and God’s provision for this ministry.


We want to make you aware of two upcoming events, a short reminder about City Market Community Rewards, and give you the dates of all our activities next year so please read on!


We will once again be participating in Facebook’s fundraising day: Giving Tuesday. Here’s the info.

Facebook's match for Giving Tuesday 2019 begins at 8:00 AM Eastern Time (5:00 AM Pacific Time) on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Donations are matched dollar for dollar on a first-come, first-served basis until the match is met. ... Facebook will match up to a total of $100,000 per nonprofit organization.

  • Here’s how: go to https://www.facebook.com/TepeeBibleCamp/ as early as 6 a.m. Mountain Time on Tuesday December 3, 2019 and donate any amount you wish to the camp. The best times to ensure your donation will be matched are between 6 and 8 a.m. You may give any time that day and any day until December 12, but funds will only be matched on Dec. 3rd.  You will receive an emailed receipt from the entity Facebook has chosen to collect the funds. So, watch your email to enable you to claim your giving on your yearly taxes.
  • How much money will we be attempting to raise? $3500 What will the funds go toward? The funds will go toward gathering maintenance supplies for:
    • Re-siding the west side of the long house- $800
    • A new deck for the craft house- $500
    • Two or more loads of road base and gravel for the parking area and driveways $500
