Children who come to Ferncliff Camp get involved in a hands-on service project that is fun and practices their faith by helping other people. One evening each week campers have a "Party with a Purpose." They learn about world hunger, put on hair nets, sanitize their hands, and learn now to fill small bags with rice, soy, dried vegetables and a vitamin pack. There are 4 mixing stations, runners, sealing stations, and packing in boxes. The dance music is turned up and the campers party and package meals. Last year Ferncliff packaged 45,000 meals that went to Honduras. This year, by end of summer, campers will have packaged and boxed 50,000 meals. Ferncliff raises $14,500 for the food and supplies to do this program.
25,000 meals packaged that will go to international school feeding programs. Each meal includes rice, soy, dried vegetables and a vitamin package.
