Please be aware this outreach may 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. 

The OM Norway Short term summer team will be helping at two summer camps: Saron's Valley + Visjon. Both events are annual summer family camps committed to inspire and renew Norwegian Christians of all ages.

The camps combine recreation and fellowship and offers a varied programme that includes large family gatherings, concerts, and other activities.  One of the hallmarks is that families can get together and know that there will be high quality activities for all ages.
The children and youth programme has become one of the summer's highlights for the kids. The goal is to build open communities where children and adolescents are seen, meet Jesus and are equipped to live as his followers. The programme provides a wide range of exciting, engaging and fun activities. You will help the programme leaders with activities for the children. You may also help with sales and service in the café/kiosk/grill and other practical jobs.

In addition, the OM team plans to do evangelism in nearby towns, inviting camp participants to join in.
