China English — Teen Trip

First Boot Camp  June 6—July 26China

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

  1. Can you tell me if China English Camp is still open for summer 2015? I see it some places and not others. How do we know when a team is filled to capacity? Thank you.

  2. Hi, how long does it take to know what team you will be on from the time you register? Will they send you an email?

    • Maddie, An email is sent usually on the day you are registered. If you have any questions, please give the office a call.

  3. I almost forgot, I was also wondering if cargo pants is aloud for girls, and about how many people will be on this trip.

  4. What age group comes through the camp?

  5. What is the availability of this team? Thanks!

  6. When would we have to pay the $4890 by and how do we pay it?

  7. What kinds of doors does learning English open for these kids?

  8. How much communication can we expect from family writing letters back home? Should we even expect to receive letters?

    • Hannah, People can write you as much as they want to. You are required to write two letters home from Boot Camp and one from the field. However, you can also write as much as you want to. You can RECEIVE emails at Boot Camp, but you cannot send emails. The leaders will send the office two reports weekly and they will be posted.

      • But what is the likelihood of actually receiving the letter is China specifically. I was on the Guatemala team last year and letters were sporadic and unpredictable, as with most third world countries, I’m just curious as to if China will be worse.

  9. Hello! Would you mind sharing what city the Joy in the Journey camp is? Also, what does a day look like as a teen missionary in this location?

  10. Will we need to learn Chinese? How will we communicate with the kids?
