Prayer Portal – June 2020
Camp in a Box!
This week, our campers that had signed up for our first session of camp should be looking back at their photo albums and memories from camp a few weeks ago. Fortunately, we came up with an idea that gives our kids some camp experiences, just at their homes: Camp in a Box!
Join us in covering these boxes and deliveries with prayers. Pray that our campers feel loved, enjoy opening a new activity each day this week, learn new songs from their MP3 players, watch videos made especially for them, and, above all, be reminded that God loves them always and will never leave them!

Onward & Upward is our weekend-long retreats for 13-15 year olds. The retreats use a curriculum focusing on character traits of godly men and women. We began this semi-annual program in 2004 with 39 teenagers and 46 volunteers.
SUMMIT is our weekend-long retreats for 16-18 year olds. The curriculum focuses on skills that will help them function better as adults. Examples include managing bank accounts, completing job applications, & mock interviews. We began this semi-annual program in 2007 with 12 teens and 16 volunteers.
RISE is a weekend-long retreat offered in April for teen boys and November for teen girls, ages 12-18. OFC will continue to use a 2:1 teen to counselor ratio at RISE, and the curriculum and activities are designed to help teens build self-esteem and navigate gender-specific issues.
Our Father's Children exists to provide HOPE to children of abuse and neglect in North Texas. We accomplish this mission through camps for young kids, retreats for middle school and high school students, and mentoring for teenagers. We recruit volunteers from a variety of cities, churches and organizations who have a heart for offering these kids hope in Jesus Christ. Whether as a volunteer or donor (or both), we would love to have you join us in providing hope to these kids!
