Support Camp Scholarships during the Big Give 2022

Encourage one Another and Build Each Other Up at DWTX Camps

The Camps & Conferences Department of the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas will participate in the The Big Give 2022, an online day of giving and supporting nonprofit organizations in South Central Texas beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 22, through 6:00 p.m. Friday, September 23. Our three camps offer a variety of summer camp and year-round retreats for children, adults, and families. Our diocesan camps are premier providers of experiences in the outdoors, grounded in the Christian faith and Episcopal tradition, where children, youth, and adults work, play, and grow together as they develop a community of trust, openness, and sharing.

Proceeds from The Big Give 2022 will fund camper scholarships, helping diocesan Camps & Conferences continue providing safe opportunities for members of our congregations to deepen their faith and experience the transformative love of Christ through our programs - this year, and for many more years to come.

Church leadership, members, and camp participants are invited to participate in The Big Give 2022 in three different ways:

  1. ‍Donate on September 22 - 23 - The Big Give has added more time for you to make your gift this year. Mark your calendars for 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 22 to make your gift online, at Giving continues through 6:00 p.m. on Friday, September 23.
  2. ‍Personally Invite Your Friends and Family to Give - Help support our scholarship program by personally inviting five of your friends and family members to give via email, text message, or social media to support DWTX Camps for the Big Give 2022. We understand this can be intimidating, so we've provided a sharing toolkit below.‍
  3. Engage and Share on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter - Spread the message with your network by posting the donation link on social media, updating your profile picture to a photo from camp, and sharing promotional posts from our Facebook and Instagram accounts in the days leading up to the Big Give 2022. Make sure to add a personal message to your post by sharing why you choose to support our camping ministries.

Together we can equip young people and families in our community with the emotional, social, and spiritual tools to transform the world and sustain the future of the church with a donation to the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas.
