Support the Camp

It has been said that one should “never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.” In the early 1960s, a group of dedicated Mennonites had a vision for providing outdoor experiences for children and young adults in their congregations and communities. DCC would simply not exist today had it not been for the courage and faith of a small group of dedicated visionaries. That ministry continues. Investing in Drift Creek not only provides a gift for today, but ensures that the camp experience can be a reality for future generations. DCC depends on your gifts to sustain operations.  We do our best to stretch the value of each dollar you entrust to the organization. Nearly 20% of camp’s operating budget depends on the generosity of donors. Aging facilities and the desire to operate more sustainably, makes giving even more crucial to camp operations.
