                                                                    (Colorado) – have consistently brought 12 – 20 US
       youth                                                        team members for 7 years to facilitate the camp
       To shed light in dark places

       To deepen their walk with Christ

       To see healing: spiritually, physically & emotionally

Goal for 2009

       180 – 215 youth at camp for 4 nights/5 days. International
       youth across Europe: church, missionary, non-churched &
       refugee youth. Camp dates are 27-31 July 2009.

Why send youth to this camp?

       Youth are energized and inspired when they get together with other believers.

       New talents and giftings are birthed/inspired as a result of being in His manifest presence with Godly teaching.

       It’s healthy to connect together with the body of Christ and make new, long lasting friendships.

What we need from you:

   1. Your support to help promote and build the European Teen Camp that will compliment
      your local church youth ministry.

   2. A contact from your church that would help recruit local teens, work with your youth
      pastor, and help meet necessary communicated deadlines as camp approaches, 27-31
      July 2009.

   3. A deposit of €25 per student by 25 January 2009 to help secure the camp facility for
      your youth.
The Ideal Meeting Place

Removing youth from their current environment– allows focused ministry without distractions of everyday life.

Facility Needs
4-5 Meetings rooms, fields for sports activities, pool (optional), basketball courts, auditorium with stage, sound system,
easy access by public transportation (trains, buses, etc.), onsite lodging, onsite food services. (We have found that
when kids are active and interact in team building activities, it enriches our nightly services. It breaks down fear
barriers when responding to altar times and praying with one another.)

Potential Location:      The Sport Center- und Feriencenter                Fiesch, Switzerland (hosted 5 times)

Camp Host Fee – Fiesch       Cost €120 – 4 nights
