Summer Camps

Since the year 2000, children and young people have been coming from all over Albania to camp at Crossroads.  Crossroads was the first camp center in Albania and has been running summer camps for 19 years now.

Each summer, around 1800 campers come and do things that they have never been able to do before – going through a ropes course, making crafts, shooting an arrow and canoeing are some of the activities that are not available to them in other places.

In addition to the fun and new activities, campers have great teaching on Christ’s love and then have this love shown to them by the staff and counselors.

Volunteer at camp

Each summer we have volunteers from all over the world.  Many of the Bible School students stay for the summer or come back to help with the camps.  High school and college-aged students from the States and Canada come each summer.

We are very interested in having help with the camps, and you could do a great work and have a great time!  If you can come for two weeks or two months, let us know and let’s talk!

Contact us and come on over!

Donate

The ministry of Torchbearers in Albania is dependent on God’s provision. Most of children who come to Crossroads in the summer are on partial or full camp scholarships. Albanian and Kosovar Albanian Bible school students are not able to afford the full tuition. You can help by donating here.

Gifts and donations to Torchbearers – Albania are tax deductible in the United States.

Bible School

Crossroads offers a 24-week course (two 12-week semesters) with a focus on in-depth studies of many of the books of the Bible. Christ-centered, theological topics are taught as well. Resident staff and international guest speakers teach at the school.
