Youth Camp in Kenya 2016

Meru, Kenya

August 15, 2016 - 12:00am EDT to August 22, 2016 - 12:00am EDT

It is in a rural setting with a view of snow capped mountains that are not so far away from the site. You can see this view on a clear day. Also the Meru National Park and Lewa Conservancy (which hosts an annual marathon run) are both near by.

Activities and Dorm Life

Every morning we will have a Christian living class and Bible study conducted by different speakers. Then we will have other activities: e.g hygiene classes, team building, life-skill classes, knitting, volleyball, football and many others.

Housing for the campers will be primarily in tents owned by the Church, but we do have private rooms just next to the Church property that cost 1000 Kenyan shillings per day (about U.S. $10). Meals will be prepared in our kitchen at the Church property. We also have a large playground.

Transportation

Most of our youth will use both public and private transportation to arrive at the site. For those using public transportation the fares could range between 2000 Kenyan shillings (about U.S. $20) to 4000 Kenyan shillings (about U.S. $40) depending on where you are coming from. For internationals who would like to participate, you will need to fly to Nairobi through Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Arrangements can be made to pick them up from there.
