If you went to a Christian summer camp as a young person, you’ll no doubt remember the positive impact they can have.
The sense of adventure and the opportunity to explore the gospel message - all away from the busyness of home - is often the catalyst for forming and discovering a deep routed faith in Jesus. That's why, for many, summer camps hold a special place in the life of the Church.
As we enter the summer season, many charities are preparing to provide young people with unforgettable holidays. So, we want to share some of our charity partners you can support this summer. Each one offers a unique combination of outdoor adventure, friendship, and spiritual growth that could be the ignition point for a young persons’ faith journey.
