Send a Kid to camp!

Express Yourself for God’s Glory!! This year our camp theme is all about Emojis! Love them or hate them, they are all around us! And the kids love them! We will be teaching what the Bible has to say about a variety of emotions including: kindness, anger, greed, sadness, courage, love, and joy!

The cost of the camp we have rented the past 7 years has gone up yet again, so we are going to try a smaller camp, a bit farther away. We have used the camp in Campulung before and it is much more rustic and much smaller, but it’s location is great for field trips and hiking. We are planning to rent a bus to take the campers to Rarau Mountain, a famous site in the area.
We are currently planning 3 1/2 camps this year. Our first camp is for children from the Dorohoi Orphanage. These children are no longer allowed to attend Christian camps and activities. But are told to be wise as serpents and gentle as doves……40 children and teens from the orphanage will come and to camp and experience God’s love.

For our next camp, we are taking 40 children from Stroiesti village and children from the special needs orphanage. The children attending this camp are children we work with on a regular basis, whether at Sunday school or in the orphanage. We have a full schedule of activities and Bible lessons.

Because of our scheduling, we are able to host a mini-camp for children from another orphanage that we have recently started working with. We are hoping to find local sponsors for this camp, but we may need your help as well.

Finally, we have English Camp. English camp is in partnership with Filadefia School. The children attending this camp are private pay. We are excited about this opportunity to provide a safe Christian environment and share the love of Jesus Christ while teaching English. We will be teaching English through Bible stories, Bible verses, songs and activities, and conversation. This camp will be in Vama because we will have 80 campers this year. We are asking for only 8 sponsors for this camp. We have selected 8 children who could really gain from this specific camp.

Each camp is 5 nights and 6 days (with the exception of our mini camp which is 3 night and 4 days). The cost of camp is $120 (the same as last year). That $120 provides one week of camp; 3 good meals (prepared by Bogdan and his kitchen crew) plus 2 snacks each day (this is more than they get at home); transportation to and from camp on the train; toiletry items; craft projects, game and sports time, prizes, solid Bible lessons twice a day, and a great team of Romanian and American believers to supervise and guide these young campers!

Camp dates are July1-July 20 2019. If you are interested in volunteering at one, two, or even three of our camps, please let us know. There is still space available.
