What is “Born to Shine Summer Kids Camp”?

The “Born to Shine Summer Kids Camp” is a one-week summer day camp for inner-city kids in East Vancouver community. In the camp the kids get to experience a variety of activities including playing games, singing, making crafts, DIY snacks, dancing, exercising, learning meaningful lessons, and much more! We facilitate team building, creativity, and foster confidence during the camp. Volunteer with us as camp leaders to serve our local community and build friendships with these precious kids! This camp is hosted by Project Shine under CRRS Canada and is a partnership with the local grassroots organization Vancouver Urban Ministries.
