Legacy was founded on the hope that the business could use its unique resources to help make a difference for those less fortunate.
For Members who volunteer and the Legacy staff, the highlight of each year is "Legacy Beach Camp".
Legacy Beach Camp is a powerful overnight camp experience reserved for disadvantaged children living in harsh inner city neighborhoods. The campers (many of whom have never left their neighborhood) travel to a youth retreat center and experience the beauty of the Emerald Coast. The kids play on the beach, go boating, tubing, fishing, gather and identify creatures of the sea in the marine education program, build camp fires, laugh, hug, breathe the salt air and rest from the streets.
Much more than a trip to the beach, as the kids experience the beauty of creation they learn about their Creator. For many, Legacy Beach Camp is a life-transforming adventure eternally impacting their life and the lives they touch as they live out their own legacy.
Our hope and dream is that many thousands of inner city children will be positively impacted by their experience at Legacy Beach Camp. If this dream has sparked your interest, please call our main number 850-337-8388 x 3 for information on sponsoring a child to the best weekend of their life.
"There was no mention of the cold water, but I suppose if you have never seen the ocean, no matter how cold it is, it is incumbent upon you to swim in it; its power and majesty touches you. I stood barefoot on the warm sand, wishing I had a better camera to capture these beautiful girls splashing in it."
