Man Up! is an initiative through Back 2 Basics Ministry to bless young men in foster care. This event includes a week-long day camp held at various locations each day and concludes with an Affirmation Dinner.
StoneBridge Day Camp – June 14, 2019
StoneBridge will be hosting a day camp on June 14th for young men in foster care where they can learn more about and be inspired by what a man looks like in God’s eyes. Camp will include different activities like team-building exercises, outdoor activities, learning about different types of careers, and more.
For more information about this event and how you can help, contact Brian Dunn or stop by the lobby table on April 28th, May 5th, 19th or 26th.
How You Can Help
One of the major roles StoneBridge plays in the Man Up! inititive is to outfit these young men for their Affirmation Dinner. We are currently looking for ties and belts along with suits and dress shirts in youth sizes 8 – 20. Please no adult sizes at this time.
Suit, shirt or tie donations can be brought to the lobby table on April 28th, May 5th, 19th or 26th or dropped off at the church office.
We provide day camp attendees a BBQ lunch (morning session) or dinner (afternoon session) after their camp rotations.
Please click below if you are able to donate food. Donation need to be dropped off in the Cafe on June 13th.
Volunteer @ Day Camp
Camp Day at StoneBridge is full of activities and the highlight is being able to choose an outfit for the Affirmation Dinner. Whether working the morning or afternoon shift, volunteers will start as “personal shoppers” being paired with a young man and accompany him through the different clothing areas to help him choose a suit, dress shirt and tie. The volunteers will then proceed to the cafe to help serve a hearty BBQ meal to the campers as they conclude their day with us.
Please click the button below to sign up. Volunteers need to be 18 years or older.
Financial donations are used to sponsor young men to attend the day camp and purchase food or suits for any sizes that are not donated.
