“A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.” ~ Psalm 68:5
Frontier Camp is excited to partner with Psalm68five Ministries to offer a new week of summer camp at Frontier Camp – Timothy Week!
Most of us have fathers. They teach us things… life skills, 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.
Camp is a special place for all who spend time here. We are thankful to be able to help fatherless kids get to camp so they can hear about their Heavenly Father and His love for them.

Timothy Week Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Who qualifies?
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.)
Q: How do I register/sign up?
A: In order to begin the registration process for your camper(s), you will need to submit a Timothy Week Application. We will review your application and notify you whether or not it has been accepted. If you application is accepted, we will finalize your camper's registration and send you information on how to set up and access your online camper parent account. *Note: Applications for the 2018 Timothy Week camp will be available in January 2018.
Q: What is the cost?
A: FREE! Actually, the cost of this camp week is $375 per camper, but Psalm68five Ministries has partnered with Frontier Camp and graciously provided full scholarships for a total of 100 eligible campers to attend Timothy Week!
Q: Does my camper need to bring spending money? If so, how much?
A: Yes, if they would like to, campers may bring spending money to use in the camp snack shop during the week. We recommend between $10-$30 per camper for the week.
