make the world a better place

serve your community and save on A.R.E. CAMP SESSIONS

Do you love serving with joy? A.R.E. Camp is ready to reward your efforts to make a positive difference in the world with the Make The World A Better Place service project. Earn money off of Camp sessions (including New Year's Retreats!) by giving back to your community. Share hugs, donate food and clothes to charity, and volunteer at non-profit organizations.



The project follows a simple points per dollars system and depends on the type of service you choose to do:

  1. One hug = one point (one hug per week)
  2. Each food item donated = one point (up to 10 points per month)
  3. Each clothing item donated = three points (up to 21 points per month)
  4. Each volunteer hour = 10 points (up to 30 points per month)
  • 1 point = $1 in your A.R.E. Camp service bank
  • Maximum # of point value to use per single camper per single session: $50
  • Maximum # of point value to use per family: $100
