Beyond the fun times that are fueled by group activities and games, there are numerous benefits for a Christian summer camp. The summer camps provide an environment for making happy memories, which is a rare opportunity for the for poor children in Romania. The 4-day summer camps (conducted each week for 2-3 months/year) provide fun and challenging activities and games, Christian teaching, meals, interaction with other children and adults from other parts of Romania and the world.
For 2014, we plan to host summer camps in 3 locations: (1) Dobrogea which is located in Southeastern Romania, (2) Oltenia which is located in Southwestern Romania, and (3) Gura Vladesei which is our mountain retreat facility in Northwestern Romania. Each camp usually hosts an average of 100 children.
Each donation sponsors one child from a poor family may enjoy a 4 day summer day camp experience, and has the opportunity to "escape" from his/her depressed living conditions. These children are exposed to the Bible teaching according to his/her age and understanding. In exchange you will receive information (pictures and reports) about the development of the project, as well as the impact this experience has on the lives of the children and their families. A monthly subscription sponsors 12 children.
