Methodist Family Health helps children in their care enjoy camp, their own Bibles

A summer camp experience is something every child should have a chance to enjoy. For children in the care of Methodist Family Health residential group homes, camp is not only a place of spiritual growth and making memories, but also a highlight of their summer.
Methodist Family Health (MFH), the management company of the 115-year-old Methodist Children’s Home and other programs, sponsors the annual Reverend Robert Regnier Memorial Church Camp at Camp Tanako, the United Methodist camp near Hot Springs. Now in its 14th year, the camp held each June is not only a treat, but also a major therapeutic benefit for the children and youth who live in the eight MFH group homes around the state.
The camp is made possible by contributions to the Methodist Family Health Camp Fund, managed by the MFH Foundation. Churches, groups and individuals may support this effort by giving generously to the MFH Camp Fund.
Likewise, every child in the care of a Methodist Family Health residential program is provided an age-appropriate Bible or Bible Storybook. This effort is supported by the MFH Bible Fund.
“United Methodists around the state can make a difference in the spiritual lives of these youth by donating to these special funds,” says Maggie Beeler, Methodist Family Health’s Director of Development.
To give to the MFH Camp Fund or Bible Fund, make checks payable to Methodist Family Health and mail to Methodist Family Health Foundation, P.O. Box 56050, Little Rock, AR 72215. Please indicate “Bible Fund” or “Camp Fund” in the memo line. For more information, contact Beeler at 501-906-4220 or mbeeler@methodistfamily.org.
