2023 Youth Camp

2023 YOUTH CAMP

Kare Foundation Youth Camp is an annual  activity  that we hold dear. Every year we hold a days-long camp for all our team members (old and new). During this camp the team members get acquinted with one another and are taught a myriad of valuable lessons. This year’s camp was held from the 19th – 23rd of January 2023.

The camp is an exercise that is part of our mission to see that all our team members experience all-round development  as they progress. Kare Foundation team members during the camp receive support through close monitoring, academic and career guidance, physical wellness support, social skills, as well as mentoring and networking opportunities. Our teams of Youth Pastors, Youth Counsellors, Psychologists, Educationists and other professionals working on the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the Team Members are always present as well.

OUR THEME FOR THE CAMP WAS ” CHARACTER  BUILDING”.  WE  CHOSE ” CHARACTER BUILDING ” AS OUR THEME THIS YEAR BECAUSE, GOOD CHARACTER EDUCATION CAN PROVIDE GROUND RULES FOR LIFE FOR ADULTS AND  YOUNG  PEOPLE,  AND  IT  STRESSES THE IMPORTANCE OF HELPING CHILDREN LEARN AND PRACTICE BEHAVIORS THAT REFLECT UNIVERSAL ETHICAL VALUES.



Good Character Equips Our Team Member To Be Conscious of The Right Thing To Do, Committed To Doing The Right Thing & Competent In Doing The Right Thing.

Among the topics taught were: Character Building, Academic Goal Setting, Peer Pressure, Sexual Purity, Teens and Society, Etiquette, Personal Grooming, Kare Foundation Core Values, and many more.


A typical camp day would look like this; an early morning  session for personal devotion, followed by a session of physical education in the field, breakfast, and after this the team members would settle in for praise, worship and prayers to soak in the presence of God before teaching classes began, they would have a tea break, lunch, and general break, and dinner break in between sessions that would typically end at 9 PM

Character Building

As a revelation that this year’s camp was blessed, we were honored to have the President of Kenya, His excellency, William Samoei Ruto land at the same venue we were at (Kerugoya Boys High School); on the same day we met a member of the presidential security team Mr. Thuo who graced our Sunday Service, and encouraged   our team members by sharing his life story. The Director of Education, Kirinyaga Central, Mr. Machora, also came in and spoke to the team members, and entertained and encouraged them. He promised to   walk   with   the   team   members and Kare Foundation to ensure our children are equipped for the future marketplace. On the last day of Camp, we were humbled to have Elder Maina, of CITAM Woodley church come and speak a blessing over the lives of all our team members and staff present as well as guide and counsel our team members.

 

This year’s camp was a complete success and we thank God for his Supply and Grace. Our Gratitude to our CEO, Loice Njanja, and all Kare Foundation stakeholders for the roles they played to ensure a smooth camp experience. We also thank the leadership of Kerugoya boys for hosting us and ensuring we had a beautiful, secure and stress-free camp. Lastly, we thank the Karia Boys worship team for gracing us with their presence and their gift that was extremely instrumental in connecting us with God throughout the camp.

James 1:27

Pure and unblemished religion [as it is expressed in outward acts] in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit and look after the fatherless and the widows in their distress and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the [secular] world
