Grain de Blé organizes camps to reach out to Syrian and Iraqi refugee children escaped the war zone in their home land, and now living in refugee tents in Lebanon. We work with churches in Beirut and the Beqaa (Zahleh) to coordinate three day camps and follow up events for the children. We target 60 kids per camp, where we spend quality time with them to plant the seed of Hope in their hearts through the word of God. We teach them new songs, verses from the bible and follow a well designed curicullum for three days.
Our day camp includes:
The kids look forward to their free time; they play soccer, enjoy the swings, the slides and the trampoline in addition to other activities the team prepares for them. In our evening program the leaders entertain the children with funny skits and camp pranks. We stress the importance of meal time with the children; we provide substantial hot meals on a daily basis in addition to salads and deserts.
We connect with local churches to coordinate follow-up programs for the children who attended our camps and the new arrivals in the area. On a weekly basis we run one or two programs where we sing together, tell a Bible story, play games and provide them with a meal or snacks before they leave.
