It is our pleasure to update you on Virtual Summer Camps 2021, under the theme,
“God’s Frontline Workers: Armour Up”
Please note the following:
The dates and ages for Camps 2021 are as follows:
- Kiddies July 5-10 Age 6 – 8 years
- Junior July 12-17 Age 9 – 12 years
- Intermediate July 19-24 Age 13 – 16 years
- Youth July 20- 25 Age 17 – 21 years
The age limits are to be adhered to for each camp. Failure to comply will result in campers not being admitted to or removed from the platform.
All Camps will be held virtually on Zoom.
The fee for this year is $1,000.00 per camper which will help to offset related costs.
All campers are to be registered using the online link provided:
Registration is incomplete without payment. Fees can be deposited to our account or paid via online transfer to the Jamaica Baptist Union Special Projects Savings Account – NCB#304533943 – Half Way Tree branch. A copy of the payment receipt should be sent to the Jamaica Baptist Union (firstname.lastname@example.org). Payments can also be made in person at the Offices of the JBU. The deadline for registration is, Monday, June 14, 2021.
Each camp will be equipped with the following personnel:
- Camp Chief (main administrator)
- Camp Chaplain (spiritual guide)
- Camp Secretary (record keeper/liaison)
- Camp Counsellors/Facilitators (male and female)
Three retreats will take place (April 10, May 08 & June 05) for training and planning of the Camps programme and there is an urgent need for volunteers. We therefore invite new volunteers, as well as remind others to offer themselves to serve. Interested persons are asked to register online using the link provided. This is your opportunity to invest in the lives of our Youth. https://tinyurl.com/Counsellor-JBUCamps2021
