2019 Uganda Family
- May 28 2019 - Jun 6 2019
Team members will spend a week in a Ugandan village serving Champions United FC. Champions United is building the next generation of Ugandan leaders by leveraging sports as a tool to connect capable mentors with children. Champions United's greatest impact occurs as a coach and player build a long term, mentoring relationship. You have the opportunity to help our coaches by joining forces and investing in our children. Over the course of the week, you will facilitate a high-energy, 2-day UpStreet-style camp for kids, utilize a fun and interactive hygiene curriculum in local schools, and engage with local families as you visit them in their huts and homes. On this highly relational trip, you will be inspired by a team of coaches that mentor children by investing their lives, and you'll have a blast with some of the greatest people you'll ever meet.
We need families to fill a team of 26 people to serve our partner. Family trips are designed for two or more family members to travel together. This is not an athletic sports camp, thus sport skills are not required. Having fun is! Minimum age for children is 10.
**Note that the cost of the trip listed is the cost PER PERSON.
