In our experience, it is beneficial to the sending church or organization to send a team rather than an individual because team members can build camaraderie and mutual trust. This will benefit them in their cross-cultural experience. Teams meet four to six times prior to the camp experience for pre-field training in conducting the English camp, team building, spiritual formation, and cross-cultural service. Also, a team can build a strong relationship with the sister church or organization that hosts the camp to provide a more sustainable and impactful camp experience.
Adults ages 18 to 75 have served at English camps over the years. One of the benefits of English camp to the sending church or organization is that we need people with a variety of gifts. In addition to teachers, we also need those who can serve as the team leader, worship leader, small-group leaders, activities leaders, and sometimes Bible speakers and cooks.
We need to have an initial commitment from a church 10 to 12 months prior to then English camp date. Seven months prior to camp, a team leader from your church or organization is identified and team applications need to be submitted six months prior to the camp date. Team training sessions and exact camp dates and location are identified at this time.
There are many locations where NEW teams are needed for our camps in Latin America, Eurasia, Europe, and Asia.
