‘Adventure Camp 2024’ will be running Monday 12th – Friday 16th August. This will be a residential camp for approximately 85, 9 – 14 year olds from both ‘churched’ and ‘unchurched’ backgrounds. Its focus will be outreach, discipleship and life skills, with all the usual excitement and adventure activities.
What to expect
By joining us this summer you will have the opportunity to serve the children of Albania. You will be part of a hard-working and dedicated team of people who want to see these children enjoy exciting, fun-filled weeks full of adventure, bible studies and having a great time with each other and God. Our aim is to match your gifts and experience with the needs of the camp so that we all get the most out of time. Tasks will range from helping in the kitchen to leading the various activities, from swimming and sports to arts and crafts etc., there will be a broad range of possibilities for you to be involved with. You will become tanned and tired! But we know you will be greatly rewarded by seeing the results and the joy you will bring to the children.
Included is a fun cultural half-day excursion in the capital city, Tirana, the Saturday after camp, to experience even more of our amazing country. And this year we are offering an optional extra 2-day bolt-on trip to the beautiful Albanian coast, for sun, sand, surf and lots of fun.
You would need to arrive in Albania on Saturday 10th August, as Sunday is the camp set up and orientation day, and depart from the evening of Saturday 17th August to the following afternoon, flights depending. (Optional Bolt-on is an extended 2 days departing Monday evening)
The food and accommodation for the week of camp, including in-county transport will be approximately £300 / $360. Once all the camp arrangements are finalised we will be able to give you the exact price. The optional Bolt-on is an estimated extra £140 / $170 all-inclusive, but to be confirmed nearer the time when the number of people is apparent.
Other costs: A small sum of spending money. You will need to arrange your own flights to Tirana, and provide your own travel/medical insurance. (Please wait for us to confirm your application before booking flights).
Note: Albania doesn't require a Covid vax for entry.
