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.
