Get your graham crackers and chocolate ready because Camp Allen is coming back to Houston for our 16th annual gala, Starry Nights and Campfire Lights! Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 25, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. at The Junior League of Houston. We invite you to join us as underwriters and be part of this fun-filled, inspiring evening!
As an underwriter, your gift enables children of all ages and economic backgrounds to have transformative experiences among the camp’s 1,100 forested acres. At Camp Allen, God’s children come together to find and discover Him in new ways. Starry Nights provides scholarships and program support which gives summer campers the opportunity to grow in their faith and for outdoor education students to develop a new wonder of learning.
Camp Allen is delighted to honor The Hamill Foundation at this year’s Starry Nights gala. Founded in 1969 by Claud and Marie Hamill, The Hamill Foundation is among the ten largest foundations in Houston and has generously supported Camp Allen since 2008. One cannot drive through the camp’s piney woods or across the city of Houston without seeing the transformative impact and legacy of the Hamill Foundation. “We support Camp Allen because it provides a faith based camping experience to thousands of youth during summer weeks plus a place for quiet renewal, Bible study, and respite for laity and pastors during fall and spring weekends,” according to Tom Brown, Foundation Grants Director. We are grateful for the ways that The Hamill Foundation's support has been woven into the mission of the camp and its future.
Please join us in honoring these faithful Camp Allen friends by reserving your spot as an underwriter. Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you at this star-studded event!
