The Haitian teens in our sponsorship program are invited each year to attend the Christian Leadership Youth Camp.  This summer camp includes a time for devotionals, discussion groups, and recreational activities for about 180 sponsored Haitian teens.  The goal is to encourage and equip them to become mature Christian leaders in their homes, churches, and communities. The Christian Leadership Youth Camp is held each July. This trip needs 24 volunteers who will conduct a three-day camp for our sponsored students ages 13-17.

2017 junior camp Hope for Haiti’s Children (HFHC) held its first summer Christian leadership camp at the Thomazeau Camp Hope facility in June. Forty-two junior campers, comprised of sponsored 12 & 13 year olds from the Delmas, Cite Soleil and Cazeau Christian schools, participated in fun/educational activities mirroring our senior leadership camp week. The senior camp is held each year at Titanyen in a facility HFHC rents from Global Outreach.

This year’s theme, “Mache Nan Sajès” (Walking in Wisdom), encouraged campers to choose God’s wisdom to direct their lives. Lectures, discussion groups, and a Bible Bowl centered around this message. Outdoor recreation activities, craft projects and a talent show highlighted the 4-day event.

Our senior camp was held in July with 153 teens attending. Local ministers assisted in the teaching. Four teens were baptized during the week and more than half of those not already baptized requested personal Bible study upon their return home.

Next summer, Camp Hope will host two junior weeks. With help from Rebuilding Hope 2020 partners, HFHC plans to add to the facilities there. The goal for next year’s camp is to have both a boys’ and girls’ shower house, replacing the make-shift “bucket” bath enclosure. By 2020, HFHC hopes to transition the senior week from the Global Outreach rental facility to the Thomazeau Camp Hope facility.

Teen Camp Highlights

Community

Campers are physically separated from the powerful influences of their home environment and are immersed in a contrasting, Christ-centerd, loving community. 

 

Relationships

The activities of daily camp life teach valuable social skills.  The bonding that occurs through playing, worshiping, facing challenges, and learning together internalizes values taught and translates experience into character formation. 

 

Leadership

At camp, teens are paired with a Haitian young adult team counselor and a U.S. mission team member who work together to lead their small group.  Camps are ideal nuturing environments for developing leaders for church and society. 

Christian Values

Leadership camps powerfully communicate spiritual truths and spur spiritual growth among campers as they spend time in the midst of God's creation, participate in Bible studies, worship, play, relax, and take time to reflect.
