Summer Ministry

If you are looking for something special you have never experienced,

If you feel like you have to do something meaningful this summer,

If you are willing to have a great cultural impact on your life,

If you want to see how God works in the other nation,

If you would like to walk with God day by day,

If you want to have fun with all these,

and If you love God so much,


Why English Camp?

Awana Korea is sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ to 400 churches, 20,000 children and you through Awana program every week. Awana Korea hopes to reach more kids with the gospel. As a part of that, we have a ministry of English Bible School(EBS) and the big T&T Camp every summer with young adults from America. We call them interns since they are learning through teaching Awana clubbers in Korea.

Evangelism through English Camp is very effective in Korea, and it is a great tool for a lot of children and parents to come to church. We are looking for young missionaries who want to preach the gospel to children and youth with the love of Christ.


What Ministry Do we have?

Mission Trip

If you are only able to come to Korea for 2-6 weeks, you can also join our ministry. You will be joining a group of summer interns when you are able to come and work with them as a team. It is the same as the summer internship but the cost would be a little more.

Per a week


This includes all the food, lodging, and tour except for airfare and insurance

How is this so Cheap?

When you are here in Korea, Awana Korea provides all the trip expenses such as food, lodging, transportation, tour, and training except for airfare and insurance. As you serve our local churches in Korea, we would like to serve interns very well. Other than serving English Camps, You will have chances to go to many places such as traditional places, Seoul Tower, Korean Folk Village, Hiking&Sauna, Night market, Shopping street, and many local attractions.

Even though the interns get to experience many things, the reason why we set up this low price is that the interns will be supported by Awana Korea and local churches. Awana Korea and local churches would like to preach the gospel throughout this ministry. Many non-believers come to learn English to the churches and decide to attend the service every week. It would also bring their parents to the churches. Is it amazing? English is a great tool to reach kids with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We also are aware of college students who suffer financially.

What kinds of ministry are they?


English Bible School

From early June to late July

It is a camp ministry visiting local churches to share the gospel to children through three-day camp program(4pm to 9pm). We visit one Awana club churches in 5 days and get to travel around the local area where the churches are. Clubers will be participating different classes such as Bible, Across America, Games, Sports, and so on. Classes could differ depending on the situation. When we are not doing the camp, you get to visit many local attractions and experience the real local culture.


T&T Camp

Late July to early August, 4 nights 5 days

Every summer, we have Awana T&T Camp that brings 300-400 T&T clubers(3rd grade to 6th grade) at one place. There will be 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. We have done various activities such as swimming, crafts, air rocket, and movies. The kids receive Jesus Christ as their savior through this camp. All praise the Lord, worship God, and pray for the kids.  

What will I be doing?

First day of camps begins with evaluation of children’s English level where the English teachers (interns) get to know the kids better. The teachers also get introduced to the kids at an opening worship led by Korean leaders. First session of classes also start on this day. 


Class time​

Classes usually range from 20-25 minutes with 5-minute break in between. Each teacher stays in their classroom and teaches their subject to a new group of students. The kids are usually divided into 4 groups at a smaller church and 8 groups in a bigger church, but each teacher only gets about 4 groups that they teach. The groups are usually about 10 kids, plus or minus a few. 

Worship time

Every day, both at the beginning of camp and the end of the camp day, there is worship time with the kids, which is English song time with motions. The interns learn motions for the English songs provided by Awana Korea before camps start. They do the motions along with the music as the kids follow along. The songs are very energetic and require interns to be enthusiastic and have high energy for the kids to follow along. Song time is most interns’ favorite time and for the kids as well. 

Sharing your testimony and performing short skits

The large group time starts with English songs for about 15-20 minutes (4-5 songs), then a testimony is shared by one of the interns in English with a Korean interpretation. After the testimony, interns put on a pantomime skit, a skit with no words just with actions and sometimes sounds. An explanation of the skit follows in English (about a paragraph) and a translation of the explanation in Korean. 

Will I have time to see Korea?

Yes! While doing camps at different locations, church members are very generous in providing time before or after camp is finished to sightsee and introduce you to their city. Awana also provides time to see the capital of Seoul before and after the summer ministry comes to an end and you head back to your home. Sometimes, there is opportunity between camps too.
