Golf for Kids was started in 1994 to raise scholarship funds for at-risk campers so that all campers could experience a life-changing camp experience at Covenant Harbor. Antwan Williams is an example of the impact of Golf for Kids. Antwan’s first camp experience at Covenant Harbor was made possible in 1997 by a Golf for Kids scholarship. He later became one of the most respected counselors to serve on summer staff. Tragically, Antwan’s life was taken too soon in 2006 during a car accident. His family allowed Covenant Harbor to honor the legacy he left behind as staff and camper by renaming the Golf for Kids event so others would know Antwan’s story and that more kids would have life-changing camp experiences.
Thanks to the partnership of sponsors and participants of our annual Golf for Kids events and the generosity of many faithful ministry partners, Covenant Harbor has been able to provide over $400,000 in financial assistance through scholarship funds for campers over the past five years. Our 2016 event alone raised over $35,000. Many thanks to all who made last year’s event a success!
Every year, Randy Quanstrom is among the first to register, bringing a foursome from Princeton, IL. When asked why he makes Golf for Kids a priority, Randy points to a quote on his desk that says in part, “the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.”
As the number of youth we are able to serve continues to increase, so too has the need for financial support. We hope you and your friends will plan to join us on Monday, September 11, to ensure that campers, regardless of their financial circumstances, experience a life-changing week at camp!
