Youth Camper Scholarships

Every child is cherished in the eyes of our Creator, and we are committed to ensuring that each one has the chance to experience the joy of Summer Camp. Your generous support can make this dream a reality.

A gift of $250 can provide half a week of camp, bringing laughter, growth, and unforgettable memories into a child's life. For $500, you can send a child to camp who might otherwise miss out on this life-changing experience. Your contribution truly has the power to transform a child's life.

Let's join hands today to make camp possible for a child in need. Your gift not only opens the door to adventure but also serves as a beacon of love and hope in their life's journey.

Friendship Camp Scholarships

We believe that each friendship camper is uniquely created by God, in His image. This week-long program provides an environment where campers can discover their God given abilities and deepen their connection with Christ at their own pace.

CranHill has been accepting respite funds for a long time. However, the changing landscape is placing constraints on the conventional Christian camp experience. 

By supporting the Friendship Camp Scholarship Fund, you actively contribute to creating a more inclusive and impactful camp experience, where financial barriers are dismantled, and lives are continually transformed in the image of Christ. Join us in this ambitious endeavor to make Friendship Camp accessible and sustainable for all those seeking the unchanging love of God.

New Dining Hall

Embark on a transformative journey with CranHill as we build a new dining hall to replace the aging Lodge Facility. The current Lodge faces challenges like sinking foundations and cramped spaces. The new dining hall is a game-changer, addressing these issues and enhancing our food services. It promises improved safety, efficiency, and a better overall experience for everyone.

With increased guest capacity, better kitchen capabilities, and the ability to host events, the hall creates opportunities for connection and shared experiences. Your support is crucial in making this project a reality. Join us as a cornerstone, and with a generous matching gift of $1,000,000, your contribution will have double the impact. Stand hand in hand with fellow CranHill supporters and be part of a legacy that nourishes futures. Click the button below to learn more!


Horses at CranHill are a big part of the memories we create. Summer campers grow with them in our horsemanship program. Families enjoy trail rides, pony rides, and wagon rides together, making lasting memories. Groups come for lessons and learn about horse care.

These incredible animals are an essential part of our CranHill family, and you can be a part of their story too. Consider giving to our Adopt-a-Horse Fund and help ensure our horses continue to be a source of joy and growth for all who visit CranHill. Your support makes a difference in their lives and the memories we create together.
