Our Partnership with Camp Agape Northwest
About Camp Agape Northwest
History: Camp Agape Northwest has been a beacon of hope and support since its inception in 1997. The visionary founders, Father John Bakus and Bishop Anthony of the San Francisco Metropolis, were moved by the compelling need for children with cancer and their families to have a space where they could immerse themselves in a carefree and memory-making experience. This vision gave birth to the idea of Camp Agape, and since then, it has been a source of strength and joy for families facing the challenges of childhood cancer.
Mission: The mission of Camp Agape is simple yet profound: to provide a nurturing and loving camp environment where families affected by childhood cancer can come together, create lasting memories, and find solace in the support of a compassionate community. Through a carefully crafted week-long program, Camp Agape offers not just respite but also a transformative experience that transcends the boundaries of illness, allowing families to focus on healing, laughter, and shared moments of joy.
Our Commitment: We are proud to be a partner with Camp Agape Northwest, sharing in their vision and commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of those affected by childhood cancer. Our collaboration aims to extend the reach of Camp Agape’s mission, ensuring that more families have access to the invaluable resources and experiences offered by this exceptional organization.
How We Contribute: Through our partnership, we actively support Camp Agape Northwest in their endeavors. Whether through financial contributions, volunteering, or other means, we are dedicated to playing a role in helping Camp Agape fulfill its mission. Together, we strive to create a world where every child with cancer and their family can find comfort, joy, and strength in the midst of their journey.
