Lifeline Children’s Services is excited to welcome 16 children from Colombia as part of our First Colombia Kids Camp in Birmingham, AL!
Join us October 8-18th, 2017 to help host these beautiful children as they have been selected to participate in Colombia’s Vacation Program. This is special opportunity designed by the Colombian government to help children have an incredible traveling experience and to learn more about US culture. These children have been specially selected to travel to Alabama, and they are excited to come learn all about the South. They will be “camping” together along with translators, Lifeline staff and Colombian chaperones. Volunteers have the opportunity to learn about the children and their culture as they interact with them and participate in activities throughout the 8 days of camp.
Our goal is to shower these children with the love of Christ, introduce them to Southern culture, and provide them with great learning experiences. We are so grateful for the opportunity to better get to know these precious children and to be able to advocate for their future forever families. While we are advocating for these children, no family matches will take place during our trip. Once the children return to their homes, we will be able to begin the matching process with families.
This will be such a special time to love and serve the children of Colombia, along with their chaperones. These camps will offer future opportunities to advocate for children while strengthening relationships in Colombia. We are so excited to work together as the body of Christ to love and care for these children!
