Agape Fish Fund partners with Southeast Asian Prayer Center (SEAPC) to provide orphans and children in Cambodia with a Christian home and education. SEAPC helped organize a Kids Camp, and these excerpts are republished from their article.
This year there were approximately 500 children from 15 homes attending the Kids Camp. With all of the staff, staff families, and volunteers—both national and international—there were about 800 people attending.
There were seven teams and various individuals, representing at least six different countries, traveling to Cambodia to help. There were so many people that not everyone could fit at the same hotel. The kids and home staff stayed at one location and everyone else slept at other hotels or guest houses and traveled to where the kids were every day.
Camp is a great blessing to these kids. It shows them that they are treasured because we go through the effort and expense. Just imagine what that knowledge does for someone who has been orphaned, abandoned, or in a situation where they felt unloved before moving to the children’s home.
So, what does Kids Camp look like? It is really quite similar to most summer Bible camps that many of us attended as kids. The big difference is that it happens at the beach in Cambodia and that the children (or their families) are not paying to attend.
