- volunteering for the town of Douglas and hosting a back-to-school party for the Douglas school.
- In Worcester, we will be hosting a back-to-school block party and other neighborhood projects. The parties will be for elementary-aged students and will include things like face-painting, balloon animals, bounce houses, and simple carnival games.
- And more!
Children’s Haven is a unique ministry nestled in the Blackstone Valley area of Massachusetts. “The Haven” works with children and teens from Worcester, MA, the second largest city in New England. The majority of our city families are unchurched, low-income and broken. The parents desire their children to have a better life, but do not really know how to provide that. The Haven also works with children and teens from smaller towns in southern MA. These children, while not from the city, also come laden with burdens and baggage. Some of the families are Christian families who desire their children to be a part of the Haven and benefit from the mentoring we offer. Other families are not. These families also face the daily struggles of unemployment, relationship struggles, and drugs that we see in our city families. Camp weaves these lives together into a tapestry of variety and beauty. Teens from our program will be working with you and serving you, as well. The majority of these high school students are unchurched.
Participants stay in Cabins with bunk beds; shower in the Bathhouse, and all meals are served family style in the camp Dining Hall. There is also a Swimming Pool and other activities are available including a Campfire area!
The day away will be spent visiting historic Boston, MA.
