This year we are celebrating two major milestones–
40 years of camping ministry at Ebert Ranch and
25 years as Cross Trails Ministry offering summer camp and retreats
at Camp Chrysalis, Ebert Ranch, and throughout Texas!
There will be great food, music, entertainment, live & silent auctions, and fellowship.
You are invited to come & enjoy a wonderful time while you help to keep camp affordable for everyone!
Following the event, Summer Staff Alumni guests are invited to stay and attend an “After the Gala Homecoming Social” at our event venue.
If you cannot join us in person, we want to invite you to participate from the comfort of your home.
Our silent auction and other fundraising opportunities will be held online here beginning February 26th.
Our goal this year is to raise $45,000 and we need your help to get there!
Why Participate in the Gift of Faith Gala?
The gala helps raise funds for Camperships and to help keep camp costs low!
Camperships are scholarships that campers & families can apply for to help lower the already subsidized cost of camp to ensure the opportunity for anyone that wants to come to camp, can do so! Last year, about 10% of our summer fees were covered by camperships & discounts. Our goal is to raise $45,000!
Sponsors, Donors, and Participants are essential to the success of this event and to our sites and programs. The event will be held as a hybrid event. There will be a gathering at The Courtyard by Marriott in New Braunfels on March 4th where there will be great food, music, entertainment, live & silent auctions, and fellowship!
