“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” (I Timothy 4:12)
If you’ve volunteered at Addington Primary School, you know how awesome and rewarding it can be to build relationships with these kids!
Every year volunteers from Westville Baptist Church and CAST put together a weekend camp for some of the children at Addington. This opportunity allows the children some time away from their home environment to have fun, learn more about Jesus, and experience the undivided attention of caring adults. Many of the children are growing up in families that are battling to make ends meet – some kids are even refugees from other countries in Africa. These children are faced with the challenges of the Durban streets every day, even on their way to school.
This year 60 boys and girls from Addington will be attending at Camp Anerley. The theme will be “Be an Example”, focusing on I Timothy 4:12.

If Addington Camp interests you, there are several ways you can get involved:
1) Volunteer at camp during 27-29 March 2015! We need group leaders for the boys and girls. Giving just one weekend can make such a huge impact on the lives of these kids.
2) Sponsor a child to attend camp! Each child is expected to raise R150 on their own for camp. However, in reality it costs an additional R400 per child for a weekend away at camp. If volunteering at camp doesn’t fit into your schedule, donating towards a child’s camp fees is a great way to still contribute towards this life changing experience. Even smaller donations go a long way towards making sure these kids get a chance to attend camp!
3) Pray for the children and volunteers at camp during the weekend of 27-29 March. Every year, God works powerfully through Addington Camp to reach children who otherwise might not get a chance to hear the Gospel and experience the love of Jesus.
Joseph Bode will be in the courtyard after the services at WBC during the next few Sundays if you are interested in volunteering or donating towards Addington Camp. You can contact him at email@example.com if you have questions. If you want to give during the week, feel free to use EFT.
