Global Outreach History

The Global Reach Program began in 2003 with the vision of joining Christian camps around the world by training, teachingand assisting them in the areas of program, leadership and staff development. We have partnered with camps and ministries in Russia, Poland, Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, United States, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Jamaica, Nepal, India, and Malawi.

 

 A Ripple Effect… Every summer millions of children all over the world make their way to camp. For many, this remarkable experience in an outdoor setting is life changing. Often, this life change has a ripple effect that touches their family, friends, community and even their country. Aleksander Kharinitov , the President of CCI/Russia prays that God will raise up a Christian leader through a life changing experience at one of these Christian camps to lead his country towards God. Christian camping around the world is not just during our summer; somewhere in the world it is winter, and vice versa, which means that summer camp runs all year long … somewhere!! The opportunity and impact for Christian camps around the world is enormous … and growing!! Today, Indian Hills Camp is ready and open to pursuing opportunities that God gives us to Join Christian Camps Around The World. Bob Lindsay Camp Director
