Each year we ask campers and volunteers to help us count down the days until summer camp. We LOVE seeing the photos roll in, and get more and more excited to return to camp as the number of days and weeks decreases! Join in the fun by sharing your countdown photos on social media or email them to and we’ll share them for you. Be sure to tag them as described below so that we can see your wonderful photos! After each camp session, we’ll do a drawing for some fun Camp Encourage goodies!

Download the COUNTDOWN FORM HERE or create your own then grab your camera and help us count down the days to the Camp Encourage magic! To share on Facebook, simply post on our page. On Instagram and/or Twitter, tag us as @campencourage.
