According to Barna Research, 48% of the young adult population lacks Christian identity, belief, and practice. And the local church is not immune to this crisis. In fact, research shows that we are already losing the majority of youth growing up in our churches. 59% of Christian youth disconnect from church life after age 15 – either permanently or for an extended period of time.
Only the transforming power of the Gospel can change the trajectory of our nation's youth. . We must help kids connect with the message of Jesus in a way that leads to life-change and life-long commitment. That's the focus of SpringHill and the reason we want to reach 260,000 kids a year with the Gospel.
Our goal is aggressive because we believe the opportunity to impact a whole generation depends on allies and partners that believe the love of Jesus has the power to make all the difference.
"We are failing to make new disciples. We are losing folks from every generation…we are losing six or seven out of every ten evangelical teens."John S. Dickerson (Author, The Great Evangelical Recession)
SpringHill is reaching more kids in more places, but only because of the generous support from donors like you. Here are the ways you can partner with SpringHill:
Because of generous supporters like you, we provided over 5,000 camper scholarships this past summer. Change the course of a child's life by giving to the SpringHill Scholarship fund.
As SpringHill grows, new housing units, renovations, and expansions are needed to continue creating life-changing experience for kids. Support towards our General Fund will be used to improve programming, facilities and activities as well as need-based scholarships for campers.
Everyone has an estate. We have developed a partnership with PhilanthroCorp, a Christian planned giving services organization, to help you in planning your estate or establishing a planned gift with SpringHill Camps or another worthy charity. This service is free to you.
Let's change the world together

"SpringHill is near the top in the work they do. They're a targeted outreach to kids at a critical stage. We have four kids. All of them chose to go to Christian colleges and we think their SpringHill experiences played a key role in that."SpringHill Donor
