Every summer, we have Awana T&T Camp that brings 300-350 T&T clubers(3rd grade to 6th grade) at one place. There will be revival, English classes, English songtime, and bible verse memorization, Christian skit drama/dances, and group presentations. You will be able to have strong relationships with the kids through all the programs since they are very energetic and willing to do that. This is the most crucial part of the mission trip. Clubers will be participating different classes such as Bible, Across America, Games, Sports, and so on. Classes could differ depending on the situation. We have done various activities such as swimming, crafts, air rocket, and movies. We have revival two times at night. The kids receive Jesus Christ as their savior through this. All Korean and American leaders gather to praise the Lord, worship God, and pray for the kids. This could be one of the most memorable moments in your life.

Interns will get Hands-on experience:
Mission-minded: The reason why we are doing our ministry is that Awana Korea wants to change the world through Christian youth and to product global, Christian leaders like you. You are here to preach the gospel to them with your whole life. Keep in mission-minded.
Challenge: Staying in another country would be a challenge for interns. They get to live in a completely different culture but somehow find similarity in Jesus Christ. We challenge them to know, love, and serve the Lord, Jesus Christ, throughout this internship experience.
Christian Fellowship: Camps are 3-4 days long, so you will get a chance to hang out campers and leaders a lot. By sharing your life story and testimony and hearing from them as well, you will be having true Christian fellowships despite of language barriers.
Cultural Experiences: Interns will be able to meet hundreds of Christian children and youth, visit tens of local places, and few life-changing moments during the internship period.
Experience for Children ministry: Interns will be joining English Bible School for elementary schoolers, so that they can preach the gospel to them during summer. They will be able to meet up with Korean pastors and leaders to share
For 2 months of staying, interns only need $500 by fundraising. That would cover lodging, food, training, and traveling fee in Korea. Round trip airfare would be covered by interns, themselves.
Interns will be staying in a facility (dormitory) in Awana Korea Headquater and lodgings provided by local churches. Breakfast would be bread, cereal, eggs, and something like American style. Lunch and dinner would be a diversity of food. There are many different kinds of food in Korea from Indian to Spanish, but interns will be able to eat mostly a lot of Korean food.
Interns will be traveling around Korea guided by Awana Korea during the days of training week and visit local tourist attractions guided by local churches. It is a part of cultural training so that they could see a beauty of Korea and its history. They may see traditional palaces, the demilitarized zone from North Korea, War museum, Seoul tower, Korean Folk village, and so on.
Interns may try on Korean traditional clothes, Hanbok, and get to visit tens of local areas and the local church members will guide them during the summer ministry. Everything will be covered by Awana Korea and local churches when it comes to traveling
