Katie Klinect Memorial Fund Scholarship

This scholarship was established in loving memory of Katie Klinect. Having attended Georgia Mountains CFO since 1993 at the age of 4 years, Katie was an integral part of camp, first as a participant in the children’s ministry, then as a youth and finally as a young adult.  In 2009, she began serving at Georgia Mountains as the beloved youth leader.  She also served at several other CFO camps, both as a youth leader and also as a Rhythms leader.  She cared passionately about Jesus and poured out that passion on the youth of camp as well as so many others. Katie desired to help others develop an intimacy with Jesus and to also convey His great love for all of us. She died from injuries sustained in a bicycle accident April 11th, 2014.  She will be loved and greatly missed by her CFO family.  Her life verse was Exodus 14:14 “The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still”.

This scholarship is available to any first time adult camper and it may be combined with other scholarships.  The scholarship is underwritten by the Zone 8 CFO Katie Klinect Memorial Fund.
