Christian Camp and Kid's Place (Brazil)
In 2005, Volunteers for Christ, through its missionary - Lecio Wanderley, purchased 33 acres in the foothills outside of Recife as the future site of our Christian camping facility and “Kids Place”, an after school program space for children in the area. The ministry of Kid’s Place builds a relationship with families in the favellas (slums in brazil), opening the doors of trusted access into the lives of these forgotten families. The love of Christ is being demonstrated and proven through the outreach of Kid’s Place staff members. The presence of a Kid’s place facility will provide a place for worship and church gatherings, and in addition to establishing a local church to meet spiritual needs, one of the most effective tools for reaching the young people of Northeastern Brazil is a attending the summer camp Rancho Pitanga, which is held on the same campus.
In June 2006, EMI visited the site in Brazil and begun a master plan design that would provide an area for Kid’s Place ministry, boys and girls cabins, recreational fields, dining areas, chapel, administrator’s housing and more. Structural, water, waste water, and electrical design and cost estimates were designed around local materials, methods, and practices and provided with completion of the preliminary report.
