CITYCAMP is a place where creativity reigns, friendships flourish and confidence grows. It’s a place where kids can be kids; discovering new possibilities and endless adventures. The goal of CITYCAMP is to inspire youth to shape their world through a safe, fun summer camp experience. By partnering with CITYCAMP, we’re able to help connect families in our community with one another and our church.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A LEADERSHIP-DEVELOPMENT TRIP WITH THEUNDERGROUND?
1) Hands-On Serving Opportunities
We will be supporting the Muskoka Woods staff, as they run CITYCAMP for children in our community. These kids come from a variety of backgrounds, many of whom will not have attended our church.
This is our chance to connect with hundreds of elementary students from the Oakville/Mississauga region. We’ll create a safe space where they can grow in confidence, make new friends, and share on topics like personal values, character formation and Christian beliefs. Most importantly, we’ll help CITYCAMP guests have an unforgettable week of summer camp.
2) Learning to Lead
During this trip, we will take part in leadership-development training through workshops, guest speakers, service projects, team building challenges and more.
WHO WILL BE A PART OF THE TEAM?
This team will be composed of up to 35 Jr. and Sr High students and five leaders. If more than 35 students apply, preference will be given to Jr High students, as this is their only service trip opportunity with The Meeting House.
This trip is a cross-regional experience; we have opened the application process up to students in grades 7-12 across all of The Meeting House sites.
WHAT WILL THE TEAM DO?
During the day, theUNDERGROUND Leadership Development Team will serve alongside Muskoka Woods staff to facilitate CITYCAMP at our Oakville site.
In the evening, the team will take part in various learning opportunities, including: team building, serving the marginalized, hands on projects, and learning from experienced leaders. We will also participate in musical worship, evening devotional times, and receive training from Muskoka Woods staff to improve our leadership skills.
