OUR PURPOSE

TO LOVE

Our five day summer camps center around bringing forgotten children out of orphanages to experience a week of fun, love, and attention. This often includes many firsts for the kids—their first time swimming, eating ice cream and hearing “I love you”. Demonstrating God’s love in action is what camp is all about.

TO DEFEND

Most overseas trips end when you fly home, leaving you with only memories and pictures. However, our desire is for you to continue to have an impact long after you’ve left camp. Through our advocacy program, you can bring awareness to your child’s needs and even help find adoptive families. Ultimately, our goal is to equip volunteers to defend vulnerable children.

THINGS TO CONSIDER…

Plane Tickets
Volunteers are responsible for booking their own plane tickets. Please arrange your itinerary so that you arrive in your location at least the day before your camp start date. Our staff will arrange your transportation to and from the airport.

Passport and Visa
You will need a passport and Chinese visa that is valid for at least three months after the expected departure date. Wait to apply for your Chinese visa until your volunteer coordinator has confirmed your camp location placement.

Fundraising
We encourage volunteers to collect checks from sponsors, create a GoFundMe page, and/or work with a local Church. In order for donors to receive a tax deductible receipt at the end of the year, donors must make their checks payable to Bring Me Hope Foundation. Mail the checks directly to us and make sure your name is on the memo! Volunteers wishing to raise support for their travel expenses must do so with their local Church or on their own as Bring Me Hope will not process donations to cover travel costs.
