Everyone’s watching – hoping you will bid!!!

“You won…”

Doesn’t it feel good to get something you were hoping for but weren’t sure you’d get? EBay revolutionized the notion of “winning” an item that you bid on. Well, Fort Family, Fort is taking this to another level with our first Silent Auction! 150+ Items are ready to view NOW here.

Unlike many auctions, proceeds at ours bless campers of all ages through the Fort Future. Would you help us by sharing this with your friends also?

About the Silent Auction:

  • Bidding starts May 1st – anyone can bid. Items range from $10 to over $5,000! Register here.
  • There’s something for everybody: beautiful art & quilts, Fort food, vacations, trips and more.
  • Banquet seats are here – less than 30 left!
  • Bidding ends at 7:29PM & 59 seconds May 11th. You do not need to be present to win.
  • Prizes can be picked up that night if you attend or delivery options can be set up – depending on the item.
There’s something for everyone. ANYONE can bid!

Furthering the ministry of horses

The Silent Auction, Banquet and Golf Classic will help move along the new Stables:

  • As many of you have heard, the Stables building has been sinking for some years. 
  • Originally built for about a dozen horses, Fort has over 40 now.
  • Will increase usability of this long-standing and beloved program.
The Fort Future increases opportunities at the Stables


Fort Future Update:

  • We are pleased to share that the Fort Future Campaign has reached 81% of the goal. Thanks for giving and praying.
  • Summer Staff & Volunteer Housing – booked for staff in June!
  • Trails Project and Playgrounds moving ahead. More coming.
  • Upgraded Stockade 80 online this summer!
Lots of hugs coming soon at summer camp!

Will we get to see you this summer?

For our staff, the anticipation of summer staff and campers arriving shortly is a little like Christmas! Yes, the work and preparation, and YES, the great joy. God is going to work. He’s always working. Thanks for standing with us through prayer, bringing friends, giving, and joining in on the Silent Auction fun!

But Jesus answered them, “My Father is working until now, and I am working.” John 5:17.
