Helping Children to Understand the Gospel Message
Through small discussion groups, BCYM volunteers have the opportunity to connect more closely with children and develop relationships with them. During this time, volunteers and campers discuss the teachings they have heard to ensure understanding. It also provides a chance for children to ask their questions about the Bible stories and other concerns they may have.
A Chance to Pray Together
During the small group discussion time, children can share their prayer requests with camp volunteers and pray together with their peers as a way of receiving support.
One child shared in small group, “I am a Christian and follow Christ. I want to read the Bible but my parents will not let me have one.”
Through discussion groups, the kids get to know one another and their leaders better. This time shows them that they are not alone and they can feel supported when going through difficult times.
