Camp in a Box
Bringing Camps Home
BCYM is Bringing its Camps Right to Children’s Homes
Not allowing the widespread lockdowns to keep it from ministering to children and youth across Lebanon, the Baptist Children and Youth Ministry is thinking outside of the box by putting its fun and spiritually-rich camps into a box that children can take home and do together with their families.
Providing Spiritual Support in Times of Trouble
After enduring a year of crisis upon crisis, Lebanon’s youth and children are struggling from the enforced lockdowns, school closures, economic meltdown and massive explosion that rocked Beirut. No longer able to gather these children together at their popular camps, BCYM is determined to continue ministering to Lebanon’s youth and children by providing boxes full of creative activities that teach about Christ’s love in a way that kids can understand.
The boxes also include psychological support materials provided by the SKILD Center to help children and youth to destress and process their emotions in the aftermath of the traumatizing explosion that occurred at the Beirut Port in August 2020. Included are the Wise Parenting book, which provides parents tips on how to deal with daily challenges and the Yes You Can booklet, which teaches teenagers relaxation and destressing techniques.
