The Summer Spectacular is a much needed summer day camp for the children in our community. Most children are from refugee families. Since the early 90s, approximately 50,000 refugees who have faced hardship and persecution in their homelands have been resettled in our community by the U.S. government. These families are now seeking to build a better life in America.
Since most families of refugee children work during the summer months and daycare is sometimes difficult to be secured, our camp provides opportunities for the children to be cared for – and have lots of fun, too!!
Due to the multi-ethnic nature of our community, the camp is an excellent opportunity to experience what it would be like to live cross-culturally without going overseas. Every year, we had have children from many different nations at our camp, including Bosnia, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Burma, Vietnam and Eritrea. We have a unique opportunity to share God’s love with those from around the world.
We are currently looking for college male interns for this year’s summer camp who have a heart for kids and families and a desire to serve the nations. Intern orientation will begin June 3rd. For more information and to apply, please see the “Get Involved” page on our website.
