Camp Flying

Imagine your first ride in a small airplane when you are only two weeks old and going home from the hospital!

 

That’s the only way to travel home to a village in 86% of the villages in Alaska.

 

Now, you are old enough to go to Bible camp and, again, the only way to get there is by small plane.  SEND North helps to transport camp kids to three different Bible camps in interior Alaska serving three distinct areas.

 

Brooks Range Bible Camp (BRBC) is north of the Arctic Circle and brings in children and teens from surrounding villages.

 

Kokrine Hills Bible Camp (KHBC) is on the Yukon River, children and teens traveling there by boat and airplane from several villages along the rivers.

 

Tanalian Bible Camp (TBC) is located in Pt. Alsworth by Lake Clark and serves a wide area: south to Bristol Bay and into the interior on the Kuskokwim River. Children and teens fly in on small airplanes.

 

For many village kids, Bible camp becomes a safe place to hear the gospel and be encouraged to accept the Lord as their Savior.  It is an environment where they can grow in their faith and they look forward to returning year after year.

 

How might you partner with SEND North camp flying as we work alongside Bible camps in Alaska? For more information about flying a child to camp or SEND North, click HERE.
