Upon arrival at the campsite, the youth were shown to their cabins where a surprise awaited them inside. Inside, each camper found a tote bag with their name on it. The tote bags held a “youth camp starter kit” including; a tribal t-shirt, a water bottle, notebook, a carefully chosen bible and a welcome message with a QR code taking them to a personalised video. Throughout the entirety of camp we were amazed at the impact these items had on the youth and we would love to share some of these stories with you.
