Help with Backyard Kids Camps (Basically, VBS in neighborhood parks instead of church buildings). Our core team is made up of two CNBC (Canadian National Baptist Church) churches and one other evangelical church from the community. The dates are July 8-12, 2024, in Cochrane, Alberta. This is our eleventh summer to be in our parks. For the most part, the volunteers that serve at each of these free camps are people who live in that neighborhood. Our hope is that relationships that are made during BKC will continue throughout the year as people see each other around their neighborhoods. Our focus isn’t just on the kids, but on reaching their families as well. Each year at least 30-40% of the kids who come are not a part of any church, and many of them have never heard the Gospel or know what the Bible is.
