In January 2018, we hosted the first-ever Empower a Child camp! The week-long camp for the children and youth was packed with fun games, sports, talent show, food, small group Bible studies and amazing worship. Kids and youth had the opportunity to let loose and just be kids as well as learn more about God and who He created them to be. It was a huge success so we decided to make the camp an annual event for the children and youth.
There are three ways that you can be a part of this memorable and life-transforming camp this holiday season.
1. Pray like crazy:
Pray for the team that is in Kenya and Uganda preparing for camp, pray for volunteers flying from all around the world going to volunteer at the camp, and pray for each child and youth attending camp that they would grow closer to Jesus Christ and deepen their relationship with him.
2. Send youth to camp:
Sponsor a child to attend this life-changing camp! It is only $70 for camp accommodation, 3 meals a day, snacks, transportation, and camp activities. If you are able to bless another child or two with a camp scholarship you can double or triple up your donation.
Empower a Child Kenya will be having the camp in early December. If you sponsor a child in Kenya the deadline for paying for the camp is November 10.
Empower a Child Uganda will be having camp after Christmas. If you sponsor a child in Uganda the deadline for paying for camp is December 8.
3. Volunteer at camp:
We need your help, your friends', and your kids' help! We are estimating 500 + children will attend this camp! If you, a family member, or friend would be interested we could use the help. We need help with camp counsellors, worship, AV, prayer, photography, videography, sports, and more. This will be a great opportunity to serve with your whole family!
