You have opened the door for hundreds of African kids to have the best three days of their life! Thank you from the staff of Young Life Africa.
There is nothing like Young Life camp in Africa…for three days African kids gather with their Young Life leaders and friends from their neighborhood to have the best time of their lives. On the last night of camp, kids receive an invitation to begin a relationship with Jesus Christ. After camp, these kids return home a new creation and, along with their leader and friends they experienced camp with, they begin their Christian journey. Together, we can make an ENTIRE CAMP happen in Africa…join our team!
