Refugee Ministry


 

GREAT COM[MISSION] CAMPS

Since 2007 Hidden Acres has been able to serve hundreds of refugee children through the Christian Camping Ministry.  We have seen the lives of many refugee children changed as well as the lives of many of our “camp missionaries.”  We do this by partnering with organizations who work with refugee families year round.  We work with these organizations in helping them raise funds for campers by finding camp financial sponsors.

Our Great Commission Camps are a mission experience where you can join others in providing a camp experience for the refugee children.  A Great Commission Camp runs from Monday through Friday.  Monday is a day for “Camp Missionary” training, followed by four days of hands-on ministry.  Early mornings and evenings will be devoted to the spiritual growth and leadership development of your group as well as fun times of fellowship. During the day you will have the opportunity to share the love of God with children by leading them and participating in camp activities.

Be a Part of Something Great

Hidden Acres Summer Camps needs people who love God, love people, and want to obey the Great Commission.  If you want to be a part of a camp ministry that will minister to your soul and help you make a difference.

 

  

Our Great Commission Camps are a mission experience for your church group and provides a camp experience for refugee children.  Your group will stay at Hidden Acres Camp for five days of ministry.  Early mornings and evenings will be devoted to the spiritual growth and leadership development of your group as well as fun times of fellowship. During the day your group will share the love of God with refugee children by leading them and participating in camp activities.

For the last five years Hidden Acres has been able to serve several hundred refugee children through the Christian Camping Ministry .  We have seen the lives of many refugee children changed as well as the lives of many of our “camp missionaries.” Hidden Acres invites you and your church to join us as we reach out to refugees resettled in the Dallas area.

How does it work?

Hidden Acres works alongside a refugee ministry to sign up refugee children for day camps.  These children are bused to Hidden Acres for four days of camp.  The number of refugee children who will participate that week will depend on the number of “missionary participants” and the funds raised for the mission week. 

The cost to be a camp missionary is $275* and covers lodging and meals plus a scholarship to one refugee camper.   *This price is based on a minimum of 45 camp missionaries.

Your part

Your church group commits to bring a minimum of 45 mission trip/camp participants and register for a week of camp at Hidden Acres.  Your church leadership team will then work out a program with our Programs Director.  Please contact Tim Carpenter, our Program Director with your questions or for more information.
