Christian Appalachian Project’s summer camps have provided a rewarding week of learning to children in Appalachia for more than 35 years. Our summer camps would not be possible without our extraordinary camp volunteers and AmeriCorps members. The kids love the activities, but what they remember most about camp are the volunteers who cared enough to spend their summer with them.
