It's that time of the year again! The CGM Summer Camp is just around the corner, and we need your help to make it happen! Every year CGM hosts a summer camp for eight weeks. Our goal is to have 100 children this summer.

The children will be with us for seven hours a day, five days a week. 

We want to provide these children a chance to get off the streets for the summer, be surrounded by Christian men and women that love them in paradigm shattering ways, teach them the Gospel, and provide an amazing summer of fun.

Along with the staff, we also bring in 10-20 college interns to help run the camp.

We budget $400 per child in our camp for grades kindergarten - 8th. The high school students are budgeted at $500 per child because they go on college tours and other trips.

Please consider donating to help us put on our annual Summer Camp! 

a lesson learned

BY C.J. JACKSON

The heftiest Alaskan Bull Moose with the largest and strongest antlers often triumphs during the fall breeding season. However, it is what the animal consumes during the summer months that allow it to bulk up for betterment. Consequently, the battle fought in the fall is really won during the summer.

During the course of our Summer Camp at Common Ground Montgomery, we believe the same to be true with our kids. We strive to incorporate a good balance of academic work and contagious fun nearly every day of the week. We have created a curriculum that sharpens math and reading skills. In addition, there are countless electives and field trips that take learning beyond the classroom — allowing for an education that is hands-on and memorable!  

You see, we know that the fall season will be upon us before we know it — in fact, we only have one month remaining in the Summer Camp — bringing with it all of the challenges of a brand new school year. And the fight for passing grades and the hard work needed for success in learning will not catch us off guard. Why? Because we know what the Alaskan Bull Moose has taught us; namely, the battle fought in the fall is really won during the summer!

Please pray for our team — staff and interns — and our youth, as well, as we push on with the remaining weeks of the summer.
