Camp Timok – Serbia
Ready to take the next step?
We would love to have you join us on an upcoming project. Please contact us to begin the process.
Europeans love camping! Camps have proven a very effective place for them to hear the Gospel and respond in a positive way. In early 2003, a group of Balkan Pastors and church planters purchased a property in the eastern Balkan region with the desire to develop a year-round camp for youth and families. The 18-acre site has a small building, an open field, a plum orchard, and is bordered by the cool refreshing Timok River. Outdoor camps are already being held on site, but assistance is needed to bring the property up to standard. In a country with less than 0.2% claiming to be active followers of Jesus Christ, the vision is to make this camp available to all believers in the Balkan region as a tool for evangelism and discipleship. Camp Timok is one-of-a-kind, being the only full-time camp available for Christians to use year-round.
Camp Timok primarily runs as an outdoor camp with only an indoor kitchen. In recent years, they have added a wash house. With summer storms and small children in old tents, they decided to build a dormitory. This project will be to help complete the dormitory in any way needed. This may be putting on the roof, or finishing work. There may also be a chance to get started on a new meeting hall.
