Do you want to discover the difference one summer can make in the life of a child or teen?  For over 40 years Fox Valley Christian Action has been using summer camp to teach at-risk children and teens about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, while also providing them a completely free week of residential summer camp full of crafts, canoeing, games, hiking,etc.

After serving for a number of years on the mission field, my wife Robin and I joined the staff here at FVCA and for the last 3 years have been partnering with the families of the Fox Valley area (about 35 miles west of Chicago) to provide them with an experience they might not otherwise have.  Our local school districts have identified 48,000 at-risk students.  FVCA invites these students to join us for a session each summer where we love, serve, and encourage them while also teaching them about self-discipline and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  It is not only a life-changing week for them, but a transformative week for our summer staff as they as forced to stretch outside of their comfort zone and walk outside the limits of their normal day-to-day routines.
