In Colombia, it’s common for both parents to work 12-14 hour days.  Preschool-age children are left alone in their homes with no one to care for them, feed them, or give them the attention they need. School-age children attend public schools plagued by gangs, violence, and drugs. God has raised up the Colombian pastors with a passion to minister to these at-risk children. In their words, “If we reach our children, it will change our country.”

Christ Place Church is thankful for the partnership and the opportunity to have sent two teams in both 2017 and 2018. In 2019, we will send one last team in March. The focus will be children’s programs and construction, and if able, a medical outreach team.

The primary purpose of Royal Family Kids camps is to give foster children ages 6-12 a week of positive memories and royal treatment in a Christian camp environment. They receive the attention and encouragement of an adult camp counselor and his/her “buddy camper”. In addition, each camper is also exposed to a variety of fun activities, designed for their success and to build self-esteem. For most of these children, it’s the best week of the year – a special time when they can focus on having fun and enjoy being a kid.

Teen Reach Adventure Camp (TRAC) is a nationwide program that serves teens in the foster care system through summer camps and mentorship. Teen Reach Adventure Camp consists of two separate, gender-specific camps, for kids ages 12-15, who are or were in foster care. During the three-days, the teens will build healthy relationships with peers and adults, create positive memories, and receive a sense of hope for their future. The TRAC team is made up of caring adults with roles that need specific skills in nursing, behavioral specialists, music, drama, bible teaching, etc.
