Around Freedom - August 2019

Summer Program

We just wrapped up our summer camp program! In the mornings, each grade had the opportunity to attend 2 weeks of English Enrichment. Grades 1-6 also attended an afternoon day camp that focused on the book of Colossians and the concept of  reconciliation. 


God provided us with the much-needed extra hands this summer! Over a 9 week span, we had around 380 people helping us out. We couldn't have run all our summer programs with out their help! Along with our English and camp programs, we also held VBS in several of the villages.  


Teams also play a huge role on the construction side as well! This summer, we had teams painting, laying block, welding, building cabinets, pouring concrete and more! The most exciting thing they helped us with this summer was getting our campground up and running!


We currently have 3 camp pods built and ready for use! Within the next several weeks, we will begin construction on our camp pavillion. This building will contain bathrooms and a common meeting center. This fall, we will hold our first overnight camp for our 4th - 6th graders!
