It is an overnight English youth camp that also focuses on the gospel. The English lessons will be VBS style, using Bible stories, songs and sharing of the gospel.

Camp Dates: Mon to Fri, June 10-14 *
On-site Training: Sat to Sun, Jun 8-9 (STMs to arrive by Fri, June 7)

Sunday school class: December – February: The Book of Genesis Genesis has been subjected to misinterpretation ever since Christianity shed its Jewish root within 200 years after Christ and is misused for polemical purposes against scientism. The objective of this course is to rediscover its pivotal place in the Bible—as the book of origins and the foundation of our understanding of human predication and the need for salvation.
