WHO WE ARE
Horse Camp for Urban Foster Girls
Calvary Horse Camp is a program offered by Double J Ministries, Inc.—a non-profit organization created to serve others with the love of Christ. Calvary Horse Camp was founded with the goal of providing a place for urban foster girls age 10-13 to feel safe and have fun while learning to ride and care for horses. We believe that God designed horses and girls to connect, and we hope to give our students a chance to do so with their horse during a six-day horse camp. We hope that through bonding with their horses and with other campers and staff, the girls will feel safe, happy, and encouraged. It is our mission to bring kids to Christ, give them a chance to do something that they otherwise may have never been able to do, and ultimately to change lives for the better.
CAMP DATES FOR 2021: Coming soon!
"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden."
As the founder and president of Double J Ministries, Katie Johnson (pictured above) has assembled an all-female staff. Katie decided that Calvary Horse Camp's frontline staff , those working most closely with the campers, should consist of teenage, female volunteers. She settled on this kind of staff because of her personal experience attending two outstanding residential camps -- TeenPact Leadership Schools and Worldview Academy. Both of these camps are staffed by teenagers who are strong in their Christian faith and well-equipped with relationship-building and leadership skills. Katie is assembling a similar team of staffers for Calvary Horse Camp.
While the teen staff will be building relationships with campers and leading all camp activities, there will be also be a team of adult women chaperones who will be with the girls and teen staffers at all times. Additional women volunteers include a camp nurse, cook, and horse assistants for the riding lessons.
