It takes a lot of crayons, books and other supplies to run a summer camp.  Below is a list of items we need to create a meaningful summer for our participants.  For more information on conducting a supply drive at your church, please contact Chelsea Jones at chelseajones@ctcumc.org or 817-531-6539.

Library Books

We accept donations of new or gently used books appropriate for elementary aged students.  A great way to collect books is through a book drive at your church, school, office or with a sports team.  For suggestions, or to purchase new, please see our Amazon wish list.  Or, to learn more about hosting a Scholastic Book Fair, contact Julie Harding at julieharding@ctcumc.org or at 817-531-6540
