Through these crowdfounding, we seek to pay the enrollment of 4 children or young people in need into the 29th edition of the Lusitanian Church Summer Camps

In 1989, de Youth Department of the Lusitanian Church (DJIL – Departamento de Juventude da Igreja Lusitana) went out,to the Madalena camping park, with a group of30 young people, for the first edition of the Summer Camps. Since then, the Camps have never stopped.

In addition to recreational activities such as dance, music, games and extreme sports, this Summer Camps provides a meeting space with God and educational values.

Every year we receive young people from North to South of Portugal, belonging or not to the Lusitanian Church, divided in two camps, each one n one week - the first for Group I, the youngest ones (6-11 years) and the second for group II, the oldest (12-18).

During these 29 years of existence, more than 2000 children and young people that have passed through the Summer Camps saw, with a feeling of gratitude and reciprocity, their one life touched and transformed by the values we transmit.

As a Church, the organization of these Summer Camps have always been characterized by the social strand…

Over the years we have received children from several social institutions (as Lar do Pastor Machado, AJUDARIS or our one social projects as PÉS NO RISCO [FEET AT RISK]), and we want to continue to receive more and more participants in need of support.

We need to ensure the enrolment of those who want to participate, but who cannot afford the cost associated to it. This is the case of young people who have already participated and who show great willingness to repeat, but also the case of those who want to know the Summer Camps for the first time, and the payment is an impediment to their participation.

Every year we do a careful analysis of these cases, and these year for the 29th Edition of Summer Camps, we have already 20 flagged cases that need support.

Last year, through donations and fundraising, we could afford to support 12 children and young people in need.

We have developed this campaign so that we can touch as many hearts as possible and, with your donation, support the participation of 4 children. In this way, this experience can reach more young people and children.
