Please be aware the camp 2 outreach may also be cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. If your outreach is cancelled, your application and non-refundable deposit is transferable to a later date. We will be monitoring this situation closely over the coming months and we hope our short-term outreaches can resume. 

Campo Sport is a sports/English camp for local children and young people from the area in Torre Pellice, in the picturesque north of Italy. It's an opportunity to share God's love to the children through songs, activities, sports and music.

This is a great opportunity for evangelism, mission awareness for participants, team work and service through the individual's particular talents. We expect 150 children/youth every year, so the need for volunteers is great - especially English speaking helpers and athletes, since it is an English/sports camp. There is also the opportunity to support the running of the camp each day.
