In Romania, kids come to summer camp from a wide variety of backgrounds. The children who live in small villages come from very poor families and spend their summer looking after animals or growing vegetables. For many, this is the only vacation they will have all year. Some live in small flats in the city with very little space to play during the hot summer. So their parents just want to get them out of the house. Others come from large families with six or more children or live in a foster homes or orphanages.
Yet, the one thing they all have in common is that coming to a Grain of Wheat camp is the highlight of their year!
Life long memories are made as they play and make friends in the beauty of the forest and fresh air while experiencing the love of a Christian team.
How do we evaluate the success of the camps?
- Number of children who attend clubs, return to camp and/or become leaders as an adult.
- A child’s transformed life is a testimony to family and friends.
