Retro Friday: Fill-O-Pillow

Posted by Sharon

“The Crestridge campership program funded by gifts from friends, parents, staffers, and campers makes it possible for girls to attend camp who might not be able to otherwise.  This program was established in 1970 by a family who gives a camper’s fee each year in memory of their daughter.  Twelve to fifteen girls have attended camp each summer since the Fill-O-Pillow program was started.  Our dream is that this fund will grow, and that many more girls will benefit from it.”  This insert is found in the 1973 yearbook from Crestridge.  We have continued the scholarship program through the years.  For the summer of 2012, more than 30 girls will attend Crestridge on scholarship!  It is amazing to see how God has continued to bless Crestridge!  Scholarship funds are still given by friends, parents, staffers, campers, and Camp Crestridge Alumnae and Friends.  During each session, we give the campers an opportunity to give to Fill-O-Pillow at our Sunday morning worship service.  If you would like to learn more about and give to the scholarship fund, please click here.
