Treasures of Heaven family camp 2019

Dear brothers and sisters,

This year’s European Treasures of Heaven Family Camp will be held from 7th to 12th of August 2019 in the Netherlands. This annual family event is for Blessed Children (aged 16 and over) with special needs and their parents, supported by volunteering buddies.

The TOH ministry has been set up to give special attention and support to our 2nd (and further) gen. brothers and sisters with special needs, either physically or mentally. They usually cannot take part in general youth activities for 2nd gen and therefor have little opportunity to experience the joy and atmosphere of togetherness of joint activities.

Since 2011 we have held TOH summer camps for 5 times now, which had a very deep, joyful impact on everybody who was involved. As some of the participants need special care, we always request at least one parent to be at the workshop as well – a unique addition. Not only does it give the parents a chance to share with each other, have some free time and fun as well, but it also creates strong family bonds among all participants through daily shared moments like morning service, games, competitions, music or dance and evening programs.

For participating families, there are only a few spaces left! Please register here before the 15th of June 2019. If finances are holding you back, please get in touch with us. Please wait with booking your travel until you have received a confirmation from us.

For volunteers

Are you looking for a chance to deepen your heart and experience how rewarding it is to really live for the sake of others? Come support as staff at our camp so we can together build a true family atmosphere.

As a buddy you will be assigned to a specific participant, which means that you bond with him/her and are responsible for his/her enjoyment, comfort and safety. Of course you will not be alone in that, as all activities are performed as a group. You will focus on supporting the participant and becoming friends with him/her. The only qualification you need is dedication and enthusiasm!

Additionally, we also look for people who have experience or even professional training in crafts, art, music, dance and the like, to lead a group activity and create an exciting program together.

Last but not least, the external welfare makes a big impact on the workshop experience as well – therefor we need people who will enthusiastically support the kitchen staff and spoil our physical needs.

For any questions concerning staff roles and support, please contact Joyce Baron-Koetsier ( joycekoetsier@gmail.com )

Let us know how you want to support and sign up here! Please wait with booking your travel until you have received a confirmation from us.

Please support via a donation

We are kindly asking for help from our families in communities throughout Europe. With the financial support received, we will be able to offer some subsidy to participating families and the essential volunteer staff.

Please donate by bank or Paypal transfer or make a cash collection in your communities. A representative from each community can then transfer it or pass it on to one of the staff members directly.
