Sacred Playgrounds & HoneyRock Partner on 1.25 Million Dollar Grant Project

We’ve got incredible news to share.

In partnership with Wheaton College’s HoneyRock Center for Leadership Development, Sacred Playgrounds is embarking on a 5-year initiative, a project titled Rhythms of Faith that will engage more than 25 camps, 500 congregations, and 10,000 families in learning, training, and mutual support surrounding family faith practices. The project aims to develop and refine strategies for family faith formation to disseminate through various channels, including coursework, graduate education, articles, books, and consulting resources.

The $1.25 million project is funded through Lilly Endowment’s Christian Parenting and Caregiving Initiative. The aim of the initiative is to help parents and caregivers share their faith and values with their children.

We are grateful to our camping ministry partners at Lutheran Outdoor Ministries, United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministries, and the Christian Camp and Conference Association for joining us on this exciting project!
