For our Hybrid Camps there are a limited numbers of spots available for our 'camp classroom' setting. The online campers will video conference in while a small classroom of students will participate with the camp staff. For any campers coming to our buildings there will be a need to follow physical distancing guidelines and extra hygiene practices.

In-Person Camp

Our in person camps are strictly help in person with a maximum number of campers. Much of these camps will be facilitated outside. When inside physical distancing measure will be in place.

With subsidy from the government and our church, the price you pay goes towards quality art and building materials, online platforms and receiving training from local experts. These funds allow us to offer high quality curriculum to campers while cultivating rhythms of community through a parallel youth leadership development program.
