Summer Bible Camp
Light of the Village Summer Bible Camp is six weeks of Bible study, games, music, sports, skits, crafts, water, and especially, new faces. Each day, we have the opportunity to share Christ with over 350 children from high-crime, low-income communities while providing them with a safe, positive environment in which to spend their precious weeks away from school, all at no cost to the individual. Additionally, Summer Bible Camp gives us the opportunity to interview and employ more than 25 young teens each summer as TeenLeaders who work alongside our college interns planning activities and mentoring campers.
Our vision for this program is to replicate the existing model of our Summer Bible Camp to serve multiple high-crime, low-income areas for the sole purpose of spreading the Gospel. We are currently operating in 5 locations: Alabama Village, Chickasaw, Plateau, south Prichard, and Juarez, Mexico. These programs are implemented by Light of the Village staff and interns who have worked within the model and have gained valuable experience and expertise in running such a program.
