Camp GloriousA week that transforms young lives and the lives of those that minister to the young.
The VisionThe vision of Camp Glorious is to use the July- August vacation to meet with 5000 plus children each year. This is being done throughout Trinidad and Tobago at between 60- 65 venues. The main aim of the camp is to share Jesus with the children whose ages range from 5-18 years. Each year there are about 800 volunteers, mainly young people. The season climaxes with the National Close Off. We have had the Prime Minister of the nation attend and speak to the children at two of the Close Off Ceremonies.
Mobilizing the CampsAs one may well realize this is an awesome undertaking that demands much planning, both at the level of the Head Office where region al coordinators are stationed and then numerous meetings in the ‘field’, the regions, with various support volunteers.
PlanningAt the initial planning meeting the regional reps or coordinators are to bring to the table the list of the venues they propose to have for camps in their regions that year. A series of meetings follow. They are mainly in the field where mechanisms are put in place to mobilize the children, teachers, transport and of course incentives for the children.
Behind the scenes much prayer is taking place as Coordinators meet with principals of the schools and business people and the likes. During this time materials for the Character Building Segment of the program is prepared.
