Saving Camp Grace

Saving Camp Grace is a restoration effort by the Elevate Project Foundation (EFP), a non-profit, who purchased the facility when they found the property was to be divided and sold to developers for a shopping mall. Camp Grace, established first in 1940 by the LDS Church and later Mission of Grace, will be to help youth of all ages locally and throughout Arizona. Raising funds through a yard sale Oct. 19 to refresh the property were numerous hard-working volunteers. From left front row: Luke Killian, Matthew Killian. Back row: Ronnie Hatch, Josh Howard, Shannon Howard, Danielle Prein, President and Founder of EPF Jennifer Brimhall, Wayne Walters, Kadan Brimhall, Gabby Cadiente, Annalyse Brimhall and Terri Jensen.

What a great event. So nice having the community come out to support the rehabilitation of this historic camp. Camp Grace is back, baby! Can't wait until the Spring event and Grand Opening!
