Fill the Bus Fund

It is Young Life’s hope that finances never stand in the way of a kid getting on the bus and going to camp. To make it possible for more and more kids to experience a life-changing week at camp, donors are invited to help underwrite transportation and camp costs. You can fill an entire bus, half of one or as many rows as you please. Every seat you help fill can mean one more life changed for eternity.

If you'd like to find out more about the Fill the Bus Fund, please contact Janel Wren in Development Services at (719) 381-1884.

Granting a Wish of a Lifetime

By Stacy Windahl

Young Life Area Director Joyce del Rosario serves a start-up area of six small and diverse cities. One community is predominantly Caucasian, but another that’s just five minutes away is 60 percent Asian. Armed with the Fill the Bus opportunity, del Rosario and her volunteer leaders collaborated with two churches and a private school to take a full bus to Wildhorse Canyon. One boy named Reno thanked del Rosario for giving him the opportunity to come to camp. His dad died in the spring of 2007 in the Philippines where his mom and siblings remain while Reno finishes school. "One of his dad's last wishes was that Reno find the Lord. Reno stood up at the Say-So and told the camp how the week helped him understand Christ more," said del Rosario.
