Psalm68five is a Non-profit organization on a mission to help change the trajectory of fatherless kids from very poor statistical outcomes in life, to great outcomes where they learn to understand and accept the special relationship promised to them by God the Father.
Currently we are doing this by providing opportunities for fatherless kids to go to Christian Summer camp so they can unplug from the influences of the world and learn that God is longing to have a “special” relationship with them as promised in Psalm 68:5.
Most of us have fathers. They teach us things… life skills, how to tie a tie, how to drive a car, how to succeed at that job interview, how to follow God. But what about the millions of kids whose father is absent? The statistics tell us that many of them will grow up to become drug addicts, school drop-outs, alcoholics or teen suicide stories. We believe God has a better plan.
Camp For The Fatherless
is a program that provides scholarships to fatherless kids so they can attend a Christian summer camp. The program also sponsors counselors who attend the camp with the purpose of showing the love of God – The Father to the kids who don’t have a father figure in their life.
Camp For The Fatherless currently partners with:
100% of public donations goes toward sponsoring kids and counselors. We have a special and efficient structure with almost all administration and operating costs covered through private funding. As such, 100% of all public donations to Psalm68five go toward camp scholarships and camp counselor costs.

Bruce Johnson is the founder and CEO of an investment firm serving clients throughout the United States and based in West Michigan. Bruce and his wife Margie have five children who have all grown up deeply influenced by their years at camp. Bruce and Margie met while youngsters at camp and years later continue to serve in many capacities. Over the last few years they have had an opportunity to help start the Psalm 68:5 initiative at Camp Lake Louise in northern Michigan as the pilot camp. Having grown up fatherless, Bruce remembers with great thankfulness the many who invested spiritually in him while a young camper, speaking towards the promises found in the “Father heart of God”. Years later, both Bruce and Margie desire to carry on in this next generation what was so freely given to them, through our savior Christ Jesus.
