AMO’s main teen camp happens every year during the week of Carnaval. Sadly, Carnaval is a time when many people in the country “let loose”, but often in detrimental ways.. In challenged communities, it is really difficult for the youth who are seeking to follow Christ as this week, more than most, they are encouraged by their friends and families to give themselves over to immorality and drunkenness. The kids usually start to partake in these “festivities” at 11 and 12 years old.
AMO provides them with a week of refuge where they can develop friendships, have fun, and learn about the love of Christ.
Wow, how quickly my first camp with AMO has gone by… In this time I learned a lot and had a lot of fun…. I want to thank all of those who helped me there. It was a wonderful time. God protected all who were there… It was the best time of my life until now… thanks everyone at AMO” ~Fernando, Age 16
