Reach Initiative International would like to invite you to participate in Camp Chalutzim 2016! Camp dates are set for 20 July - 2 August, 2016!
This life changing Messianic Jewish sleep away camp serves both believing and not yet believing children and teens from Belarus.
This is YOUR opportunity to join with the young adult team from our Messianic Congregations in Belarus, and participate in effective ministry to teens and children. We have seen in previous camps how the Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit) comes and ministers to the campers as they are experiencing the love of Yeshua. Many of our counselors and camp workers testify to personal life changing experiences as they pour themselves out for the campers
At Camp Chalutzim, you will make international friends, learn together from the Scriptures, pray together and see the Holy Spirit move powerfully! We will also have music, dance, art, theatre programs, and plenty of swimming and other sports.
Who: We have an opportunity for teens 15-17 years of age to join this year's Camp Chalutzim as campers. (Teen campers must be accompanied by a Youth Leader or responsible Young Adult who would come as a camp worker and oversee the teens during travel from their home country to Poland and back.) Young Adults (between the ages of 18-35) you can come and join us as a camp counselor. You do not need to be the leader of a group of teens to participate in this capacity.
When: Fly into Warsaw July 20, 2016 - Depart from Warsaw August 2, 2016
Registration Deadline: 15 April 2016 (Once your application is accepted, please mail your $200 non-refundable deposit which reserves your spot on the team.)
Cost: Cost for camp is $820 per person (This cost includes participation and also helps sponsor needy children to camp). The cost is the same for teen campers (15-17 years of age) and young adult camp workers (18-35 years of age). In addition you will need to purchase your plane ticket, health insurance and a visa to Poland.

Here is what some Camp Chalutzim Participants shared about their experience:
“Not only did God touch and transform my heart, but he also moved through me and used my talents to reach out to the hearts of the campers. All of the girls in my room became very dear to me, and during the camp I saw how God transformed them. As they gave their burdens to Yeshua and let his love wash over them, it was as if the little flowers opened up.”— Alisa, Toronto
“I would like to start by saying that this has been one of the most amazing things I have ever done! I loved the prayer time most of all. I really wish that it wasn’t over, and I feel as though God could do a lot more in my life here. But also know that He can do it anywhere. The Spirit really came down on this place and touched many lives, including my own.” –Spencer, Memphis
“I liked that you had so many volunteers carrying out many different responsibilities and getting to work in their strengths. I really appreciated the leadership of Chantal. Her spiritual leadership, organized leadership, and practical leadership were very down to earth and yet spirit filled.” –Josh, Youth Leader. Memphis
