First Boot Camp June 6—July 26
Nǐ hǎo! Spend your summer ministering to children and youth as you use “friendship evangelism” to witness to the many campers who attend the Joy in the Journey Camp in northern China. After Boot Camp training, you will fly from Orlando to Chicago, Illinois before continuing on to Beijing, the bustling capital of China. From there, you will bus 12 hours to your project site. You will help run week-long English camps for local children, including games, recreation and other camp activities. Your summer projects will range from being camp counselors and teaching English to construction! After hearing Christian songs, observing your personal devotions and listening to your Bible studies the campers will have questions, giving you the perfect opportunity to share with them about Jesus. Housing will be in dorms; showers are available. Laundry will be done using buckets. A trip is planned to Xi’an to see the world-famous Terracotta Warriors, a collection of life-size clay statues of the armies of the first Emperor of China. Following your project time, you will return to Beijing where you will visit the centuries-old Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, as well as shopping in some of Beijing’s lively night markets for items such as clothing, bags, jewelry, fans, swords and Chinese tea.
Project Expense: $4890 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee
