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 more than 20 years.

Each summer, around 1800 campers come and do things that they have never been able to do before –high ropes courses, archery, canoeing and crafts are some of the activities that are not available to them in other places. Besides the fun activities, campers receive teaching on Christ’s love and then have this love shown to them by the staff and counselors.

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

120-150 children will be at camp each week! Each summer we have volunteers from all over the world; Bible School students stay for the summer or come back to help with the camps and High school and college-aged students come from the USA or Canada.

What YOU can do if you come for two weeks or two months:

  • Work at the ropes course
  • Help with canoes
  • Teach archery
  • Play volleyball and soccer with kids
  • Work on dramas together with children that explain the love of Christ.

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.
