Resources for the members of the United Church of God

Youth Camp in Chile 2017

*update* Volunteers have been chosen! Meet them below!

We are seeking two United Youth Corps volunteers, one man and one woman, to serve as staff members at the United Youth Camp to be held in Chile from December 24-31, 2017. Travel buffers and minor sightseeing, before and after camp, will add approximately five days to the visit.

These must be spiritually focused individuals who display Christian living and leadership principles, both by word and example. These participants must have a good grasp on what creating “The Zone” for godly growth is all about. They will be responsible for organizing and implementing camper activities that will provide a skill set or specific lesson to be learned. These volunteers must be patient, self-motivated, and hard working. They must work well with others in a team setting and be able to endure minor hardships without complaint. Participants must be in relatively good health. Participants must speak Spanish.

This program will benefit the youth of Chile, as it will connect them with dedicated young adults in God’s church who display an attitude of service and care for others. The Chilean young adults who serve as staff will also benefit from the relationships built with the United Youth Corps volunteers. Ultimately, the local congregations will benefit from the lessons each camper brings home with them from camp. In turn, the United Youth Corps volunteers will gain a deeper understanding into the value of service to others. They will experience the education of international travel, and see how God’s people live in Chile. They will learn valuable spiritual lessons that can then be shared in their local congregations.

Personal expenses to participants:

Immunizations Visa costs (if needed from country of origin)

Any costs associated with obtaining a passport

50% airfare costs

Good Works will provide housing, on-ground transportation, and meal costs outside of camp.
