Frontier Camp partners with Psalm68five Ministries to offer Timothy Week: a wonderful week of summer camp for the fatherless at Frontier Camp!
Most of us have fathers. They teach us life skills like how to tie a tie, how to drive a car, how to succeed at that job interview, how to follow God. But what about the millions of kids whose father is absent? The statistics tell us that many of them will grow up to become drug addicts, school drop-outs, alcoholics or teen suicide stories. We believe God has a better plan.
We are thankful to be able to provide a free camp experience fatherless kids so they can hear about their Heavenly Father and His love for them. If you know of a fatherless child that would benefit from Timothy Week, you can register them here [registrations open in Spring]. If you want to help us financially by sponsoring a Timothy Week camper, you can give here.
See below for common questions regarding Timothy Week. If you have further questions, please contact us at [email protected].
Timothy Week Frequently Asked Questions
A: Boys and girls ages 8-15 who are growing up without a father in their lives. Their father may have passed away, been incarcerated or may have abandoned the family. Children who are currently in foster care also qualify. While our heart goes out to children of divorced parents, the Timothy Week scholarship is not specified for them, unless they have very little or no contact with their father. (Note: if your child is in a home where a divorce has occurred and financial resources are limited, please contact the camp to determine whether other camp scholarship funds may be available.)

A: We love having campers here at Timothy Week! And we love moms, too! Being a mom is hard; being a single mom is even more challenging. But God is always with us! We understand the importance of relationship. Relationship with God and relationship with others.
That’s why we have a special time just for moms during Timothy Week! 1 Thessalonians 5:11 says “encourage one another and build each other up.” Our prayer is that you leave refreshed, encouraged, and empowered with tools to navigate single motherhood to help you better walk in the power you have as a mom!
So join us on Thursday before you pick up your camper! Come connect with other single moms and enjoy lunch, friendship, and fun!
