I was a camper 2 times before and a counselo - but I don’t know which camp was better.  Last years camp had a great impact on my life - but serving the Lord this year was awesome.  :o) ... greetings to the whole team!

staff is cool

English Camp is an international effort.  The Austria team does most of the planning, preparation, registration for the 4 weeks of camp, also the recruiting of Austrian counselors, speakers and cooks.  Bruce and Kristi at Shamineau International (Camp Shamineau, Minnesota, USA) recruit a staff of American (and other native-speaking) English teachers and counselors.  We coordinate throughout the year and then bring everybody together in the summer to do camp. Dave serves on Team Jugend of the Bund Evangelikaler Gemeinden in Österreich, a group which supports youth ministry all over Austria.  We also work with the EFCA ReachGlobal in America, which supports the free evangelical churches in Austria.

“Ich bin Gott um sehr vieles näher gekommen, Am meisten hat mir 
das reden mit den Betreuern über Gott, die Geschichten von den Betreuern und die Stille Zeit.”
“Danke an alle! Lieber Gott, I love you!”
“Mein English hat sich definitive verbessert. Es hat mir geholfen dass man die ganze Zeit Englisch geredet hat.”
