Service Camp


Join us for the best week of your year! Join students from Munich, Basel, and London as we partner with people from Haskovo, Bulgaria to rehabilitate local parks and school outdoor areas. Each evening we will have Young Life club with music, crazy games, laughter, and a message about the Christian faith and life. We will take a look at who God is from the Christian perspective. There will also be time for students to discuss openly their thoughts and feelings about the club talks and their daily experiences with their friends and leaders after each club.

Hundreds of students have had an amazing week during the service camp. It is important that you come with an adventurous and positive attitude. Things will be different from our normal life, but it will be amazing! Students will have the opportunity to engage in thought provoking conversations throughout the week. Each night we will have “cabin time” where we will discuss life and the Christian faith. Most students enjoy this time and consider it a highlight of the trip.
