Grant Update: Young Lives Camp – They’re On Their Way!

We are excited to announce that 14 teen moms and their children are headed to YoungLives Camp in Michegan! Just over 2 years ago in May of 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic, Caroline Eaton was awarded a TTR grant on behalf of Young Lives of Greater Holland. The grant provided scholarships for 14 teenage girls and their babies to go to Young Life camp for a week. Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, camp was cancelled for both 2020 & 2021.

Prior to 2020, each summer, teen moms and their children headed to YoungLives Camp camp to experience the gospel and the unconditional love of Christ. Mentors accompanied teen moms and their babies to a camp facility designed just for girls to have respite from their daily struggles. Teen moms were immersed in the love of God, built new friendships, and focused on their future along with tons of fun surprises for mother and child.

This morning, after two long years, they are off to YoungLives Camp!
