Love as Big as the Whole Outdoors

This fall, just over 1,000 kids came back to school with a very different story about what they did on their summer vacation. Leaving the sweltering streets of New York City, these inner-city children took advantage of scholarships provided by the American Bible Society to spend a week at Camp Tecumseh in New Jersey.
Camp Tecumseh welcomes these children to a remarkable community, opening an invitation to experience both the beauty of God’s world and the power of God’s Word. Wading through rivers, sleeping in cabins and playing new games was balanced with the discovery of practical, biblical principles and critical life choices.
And more than a story for school this fall, children here acquire friendships and foundational lessons to last a lifetime. As Brittany reported about her time at Camp Tecumseh, “I was asked to attend Camp and I loved it. I now work at Camp Tecumseh.”
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
