The Reason

There is so much to say...

The current pandemic has taken SABC on a wild ride.  Camp has been shut down to guests and campers since March of 2020.  Still, we are preparing for an exciting summer ahead.  In April, we arrived at another crossroad and were forced to make a decision to cancel youth camps and shift to a Family camp format.  We believe this gives us the best opportunity to offer camp to as many people as possible.  In the midst of this latest pivot (I’m starting to dislike that word) we see so many new, unique and exciting ways to minister to kids and families!  Check out our website for all the details at

As in the past, the R²FAR will continue to raise funds for the All Aboard Fund.  The unique purpose of this fund is to provide sponsorships to children and youth that cannot come to camp because of financial hardship.  This money is not allowed to be used for any other purpose.  We are so thankful for this R²FAR event that allows camp to be more accessible to kids in need.

As we look to this coming summer as well as to the future, we truly believe that for kids to be able to come to a place like SABC is needed more than ever.  Combined with job losses and uncertainty in our world, many parents need financial help to make this happen.  This summer we will be offering sponsorships to needy families to help cover a portion of their fees to allow them to bring their kids to camp.  

Let me reassure you that God is much bigger than this pandemic and we are celebrating the work that will continue this summer, the lives that will be transformed, and the families that will experience SABC together.  Join us!
