want NEED to have fun
Camp is an age-old opportunity for youth to build friendships, learn about God, discover new and exciting strengths and experience those camping traditions so many of us associate with the joy of childhood summers.
Inner City Youth Ministry seeks to ensure that children in Saint John have the opportunity to spend time at camp regardless of financial situation, or access to transportation.
Each year ICYM brings a group of kids to Camp Brookwood, a wonderful, rustic, small Christian summer camp in rural New Brunswick, for Inner City Camp. At camp, children are able to immerse themselves in an outdoor setting and to participate in group activities such as swimming, hikes, and crafts. Children are encouraged to explore spirituality and engage in activities designed to spark curiosity about who God is and their own identity. Trained and enthusiastic camp staff become role models for the youth and encourage young people’s growing independence.
For some of the youth attending our camping week, it is their first time leaving city limits and experiencing a rural environment. Access to nature, and the summer camp experience, is an opportunity we are honoured to be able to provide for the youth of our community.
