Since 2002, youth from several Harrison County churches have been able to attend church camps as a result of scholarships from the Lucy Hornbeck Bless the Children Fund, which is held by the Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF). This year, funding is available for youth once again.
The 2017 Lucy Hornbeck Bless the Children Fund church camp scholarship application is now available on www.hccfindiana.org/lucy-hornbeck-church-camp-scholarship/. Church representatives can complete the application on behalf of youth wanting to attend a church camp.
Completed applications can be mailed to Derrick Grigsby, Chief Financial Officer, at Harrison County Community Foundation, P.O. Box 279, Corydon, IN 47112. They can also be emailed to him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, March 22.
The Lucy Hornbeck Bless the Children Fund provides church camp scholarships to Harrison County youth who might not otherwise have been able to attend the camps. Priority is given to youth who have a financial need for this support. No preference is given to any particular denomination or church.
The fund was established in 2001 by a friend of Lucy’s who wanted to honor Lucy’s love of teaching and children, as well as her strong religious commitment.
