The vulnerable children reached by the Baptist Children and Youth Ministry (BCYM) are unable to contribute to the cost of the camps so outside funding is crucial to them being able to hear about the love of Jesus and the biblical principles that are shared at the camps. Please pray about how you can be involved in making a difference in these young lives through the needs listed here:
Camps – $130 per child, per camp; 80 Children per camp
Lebanese-led, these 3-day camps provide an escape for children who generally have few opportunities to play, sing, make crafts, or learn about Jesus’ love for them. Your donation affords Iraqi, Syrian, and vulnerable Lebanese children the experience of a high quality spiritual and recreational camp.
Camp-in-a-Box – $35 per box
BCYM launched the Camp-in-a-Box to deliver spirit-filled, inspirational boxes to needy kids all over Lebanon, especially during challenging times. Your contribution will go toward a storage box filled with gospel-centered books and activities as well as all craft supplies needed to complete them.
Follow-Up-to-Camp Events – $1,000/event; 40 one-day events each year
Follow-up events are held throughout each year to sustain relationships and reinforce what children learn while attending camps.
Ministry to Vulnerable Children – $1,000/event; 24 events each year
