There are several ways that you can support JEMS Special Camp.  The first and most important is through prayer.  Special Camp volunteers are sustained by the prayers of JEMS Special Camp supporters, especially during camp week.  Please pray that each volunteer would be renewed and refreshed each day, as the Lord reveals Himself in new ways through our Special Campers.  Please pray that the Lord would sustain each volunteer throughout camp week, as days are long and can be tiring as the volunteers care for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each camper.  Pray that our Special Campers will enjoy their week at camp, adjust well to the site at Monte Vista school, and feel God's presence close to them as we worship Him together as one body.  Pray that the campers' families and caregivers would enjoy their week of much-needed respite from the care they provide to their loved ones the remaining 51 weeks of the year.  And above all, pray that God would glorify Himself through this very special ministry called JEMS Special Camp.

Another way to support JEMS Special Camp is through volunteering as a Special Camp aide.  Many of our first-time aides have never been involved in disabilities ministry before serving at Special Camp.  One of the primary requirements of a volunteer is a sense of “inadequacy”.  This enables the Holy Spirit to teach and use us by God’s grace. Other essential qualifications are to be flexible and to have a servant’s heart.  Volunteers have ranged in age from college students to senior citizens.  For more information on volunteering for Special Camp, click here.
Yet another way to support JEMS Special Camp is financially.  Your monetary gifts can provide scholarships to assist campers and aides to be able to attend camp (Mount Hermon Special Camp Jiane Li Memorial Scholarship Fund) or can help us to meet current-year camp expenses such as facility use fees and aide training/preparation costs (Mount Hermon Special Camp Miscellaneous Fund).  If you choose to support JEMS Special Camp in this way, please make your check out to "JEMS" and specify the appropriate fund to direct your contribution.  Mail to: JEMS, 948 East Second Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012-4382.
