We want all children in Bénin to be able to take part in SU activities (especially camps), so we have decided to decentralise camp activities and organise camps in each administrative region in the country. Regional Commissions will be set up to conduct camps in their region and will raise funds to pay for them. Three camps have been held this year.
The first camp in the south was in Djakotomey from 27-30 June 2016. This was the first time that SU had organised a camp in this region, which is very poor compared to Cotonou. There were 15 leaders and 37 children. This was very good for a first time, and we praise the Lord!
The second camp was held in Ouidah from 4-11 July 2016 (the 10th time this camp was run), and we had 59 leaders and 154 kids and teens attend.
The third camp was in Parakou from 22-30 August 2016 (the 3rd time this camp was run). There were 22 resource people who were in charge of leadership, running the camp, health and catering for the 109 campers who attended.
