AMAZING GRACE OF CAPE COD is a program for children from Cape Cod and the South Shore whose parent is or has been incarcerated. It began in 2014 as a one-week residential camping experience. Over the last three years, thanks to the prayers, financial support and contributed time we have received as well as a partnership with the South Shore YMCA Camp Burgess in Sandwich MA, 54 children ages 7-11 have attended our camp. This year’s camp experience will be August 20-25 and we hope to have 25 children. In 2016, Amazing Grace expanded its program to sponsor children 12+ who participated in Amazing Grace at Camp Hayward’s coed week. Seven will be there this summer. We also added monthly activities for the campers and their families.
