Your gift to Chanco transforms lives – Annual Fund

img_6183Chanco changes lives. Your gift makes the difference.  Each year hundreds of campers experience God’s love in Christian community in our summer camp programs while challenging themselves with new experiences, making new friends and having fun. Retreat participants at EYC events, Happening, Cursillo, parish retreats, vestry retreats and more deepen their relationship with God and with one another. Perhaps most importantly, many young people who would not otherwise have a Chanco experience are able to have one thanks to your generosity. Chanco awarded over $47,000 in 2016 in financial assistance including many full scholarships to youth from Boy’s Home of Virginia and ForKids, an organization supporting homeless youth and families.

Chanco depends upon gifts to the Annual Fund each year to make continued improvement to its property and programs and award scholarships so that every child who wishes a Chanco experience may have one.  Click here for Chanco’s 2016 Annual Fund brochure and learn more about what your gift makes possible! img_6012

Chanco strives to be a place for both camp and retreats that is affordable to everyone.  Your gift means that we are able to keep costs low to our guests thus making a Chanco transformative experience a reality for more and more people every year.

Chanco depends upon $85,000 in its Annual Fund to sustain its ministry. Please prayerfully consider your gift to Chanco this year and give as generously as you are able. Help us keep costs low, be able to offer extensive financial assistance to camper families and continue to make the improvements to our property and programs that makes Chanco on the James the best camp and retreat center in Virginia!
