Missions Project

Super Summer Arkansas is proud to be working with The CALL (Children of Arkansas Loved for a Lifetime) and Arkansas Baptist Children's Homes as our ministry partners, helping address the growing needs of the Foster Care system in our state.

Did you know?

  • There are more than 5,000 kids in Arkansas's foster care program on any given day
  • One out of every 4 kids doesn't have a foster bed to sleep in
  • If 1 family from each church in Arkansas became a foster family, we could solve the foster care crisis in our community
  • If out of every 10 churches, 1 family adopted a child from foster care, all children whose parental rights have been terminated would have a new forever home!
  • Adoption Matters!

    Galatians 4 says: "But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children."

    For those of us who are believers, adoption is part of our story! God adopted us into his family. God is passionated about children. God is passionate about adoption and taking care of children. No matter your age, location, or life stage, there is a role for you to play in what God is doing right here in Arkansas.

    What can I do?

    Super Summer Arkansas has met with The CALL and the Arkansas Baptist Children's Homes to understand specific, immediate needs and how we can make a positive impact.

    It's simple!: We are asking each student and adult coming to Super Summer to bring one of these items: (You can bring more if you'd like!)
  • Pairs of new socks in your size and gender
  • Pairs of new underwear in your size and gender
  • $5 gift card (ex: McDonald's, Sonic, Starbucks, Target, Walmart, etc.)

  • Pick up one or more of these items on your next trip to your favorite store and then bring them with you to camp. It's that easy, but makes a huge difference!!

    What about after camp?

    We don't want this to be just a camp experience, so at Super Summer, you will learn about what you can do after camp to make a longer term impact with the ABCH and/or the local CALL chapter in your county.

  • Can I get my church involved?

    ABSOLUTELY! We would love for your local church to get involved in collecting these items. This is a great way to encourage more involvement at the church level, and is an opportunity that your student ministry can be leading the way!

    How do I get my items to Camp?

    It's up to you on whether you bring all of your church's items to camp, pre-collected, or if you let each individual student bring his/her own items. Ultimately, the most important thing is that each student has the opportunity to tangibly feel as though he or she is a part of making a difference in the life of another student in our state. Obviously the items need to actually make it to Camp, but whether you collect the items in advance or let your students individually bring them is completely up to you!
