Why QLC Foundation?

 

Quaker Lake Camp offers a place where participants connect with God and make memories that will last a lifetime. QLC provides a sense of community through Christian fellowship that enhances participants’ feeling of self-worth, strengthens their faith, and encourages them to approach the future with courage.

QLC has grown to over 250 acres and serves over 2,000 people annually. In addition to a residential summer camp, QLC offers preschool day camp, spring camp for middle school students, Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt, Pumpkin Festival, field trips for elementary students and facility rental to churches and organizations.

 

As you might imagine, a significant amount of money is needed each year to staff activities, maintain facilities, keep summer camp tuition affordable, and grow our ministries. NCYM Inc., Quaker Lake’s parent organization, and its two associations of meetings provide financial support to Quaker Lake annually. However, the amount provided has remained the same since 2016 and will not increase in the future. The QLC Foundation was formed to meet this budget gap and provide funds for growth.

 

The core objective of the QLC Foundation is to build and manage an endowment to benefit Quaker Lake Camp in perpetuity, while also meeting the immediate financial needs of Quaker Lake Camp.

The QLC Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors. The following individuals are members of the 2019 Board of Directors:
