How Can I Help?
Generosity for Generations Fund:
We have been so grateful for God’s faithfulness in growing the ministry at Ross Point. Our prayer is to have continued growth so we can continue to offer our camping experiences to youth and adults for decades to come. Ross Point Camp has teamed up with American Baptist Foundation to provide creative “planned giving” options. The Generosity for Generations Fund was established in 2017 to help expand and enhance the ministries for future generations. In addition to cash gifts, we encourage other ways to give:
- Gifts through Wills and Bequests
- Gifts of Stock
- Life Insurance Designations
- Real Estate and Other Properties
- Charitable Trusts and Gift Annuities
Many campers are not able to attend camps and retreats without assistance. During the 2016 camping season, we were able to offer over $8000.00 in scholarships and discounts to help campers be able to attend camps and retreats.
A number of groups come to Ross Point that fill every cabin to capacity. We would like to add 4 new cabins to expand our ability to serve these ever growing groups. 4 additional cabins would increase our capacity from 140 beds to 188 beds in cabin housing. We are hoping to start building 1-2 cabins this summer.
Ponderosa Building Fund:
We are always working on new projects to update and improve our facilities and ministry capacity. In 2004, we added two new buildings with 6 motel rooms in each building which added much needed space for adult retreats and conferences. In 2007, we added a deck off the dining room. These and many other improvements are made with the help of our donors. You may find a list of completed projects on the ‘History’ page. Looking to the future, we would like to raise $1.2 million to add another 60 bed motel building and expand Mohr Dining Room to compliment Ponderosa Lodge which includes Adam’s Place.
Specific designated funds for improvements to Ross Point facilities as a memorial to someone you which to honor. Please contact the office for specific options.

Camp Journey is a camp providing a community of hope for children and their families touched by cancer. Dealing with childhood cancer can sometimes make “just being a kid” seem out of reach—and out of scope for the whole family. At Camp Journey, our goal is to change that perception and that reality.
To make a donation to help a child who has experienced cancer go to camp, please click on the donate button below. One time gifts may be made or you can set up a monthly recurring donation. You can also help Camp Journey earn donations just by shopping with your Fred Meyer Rewards Card.
