Mini-camp at St. Vincent's
MISSION OPPORTUNITY summer 2015
Also, if you just want to donate money to St. Vincent's, that would be great, too. Last I heard they were having real trouble feeding the kids. Talk about basics. If you'd like to donate to that, go to this website: www.wtnhaitipartnership.org I gather you can indicate if you want it to be for food (or medical care or...).

Dear Haiti friends,
If you are interested in a summer camp opportunity to work with the kids at St Vincents this summer, read on......
'MINI' CAMP AT ST. VINCENT'S
If there is enough interest, I (Tom Landry, the founder of Jacob’s Color Link Initiative) thewill host a mini-camp at St. Vincent's in the latter part of August 2015. This camp will be 5 days in length (3 of which will be spent at the Center with the children). I would like to have a group of no less than 10 persons. My tentative plan would be to stay at the Le Plaza near St. Vincent's so that we can walk to St. Vincent's each day and avoid costly travel to and from Petion-Ville. Breakfast and dinner will be served at the hotel and lunch will be catered at the Center for the residents (70-80) or we cook together as group as I have done in the past. The activities will commensurate with the experience of those in attendance. I am quite fluid with this given we have done so many different activities with the children. I would however, like to focus on a few necessary life skills like teaching them how to cook in addition to fun- play activities.
If anyone is interested in this or knows of anyone, please send me their names and contact information. This is very informal at this time because I don't want to spend too much time planning if there is not enough interest.

about the camp via their website:
campJacob is an annual retreat offered to the residents of St. Vincent's Center for Handicapped Children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Campers are brought to a resort on the northern coast of Haiti and instantly become guests of JCLI. The organization creates a fun-filled environment that also offers a variety of holistic therapies and programming to develop life skills. Volunteers from the United States and Canada host the camp over the course of eight days.
