"The economy is kinds tough, and when the camp can offer a scholarship to the kids, that makes it that much easier for them to come and learn about Christ. Which is the ultimate reason for doing this," says Mark Moldenhaur who attended the event.

Last year the auction raised nearly $18,000 This year they are hoping to raise more than $20,000. The camperships cover 40 percent of the cost.

WESTON (WAOW) - - Hundreds of quilts were auctioned off today at Mount Olive Lutheran Church in Weston. The profits went to "Camperships" or scholarships for Camp Luther, a summer sleep-away camp in Three Lakes.

Many families can't afford to send their kids. Camperships make it possible.
