THE TRIP Serve for six weeks as a camp counselor at Covenant Bible Camp, just outside oﬀ Unalakleet, a small village on the Berring Sea. Campers (ages 9-25) from all over Alaska hear and often respond to the Gospel and experience a loving and safe family of believers who serve as staﬀ. We eat great food, go on adventures, and enjoy diﬀerent camp activities.
THE PLACE Most of the six Alasken indigenous groups live in small villages with populations of several hundred people, with small planes being the primary mode of transportation between villages. Many of these communities have very high rates of alcohol, sexual and drug abuse and suicide. Through the ministry of Covenant Youth of Alaska, young indigenous people are able to encounter God and are changed at summer camps in a very special way.
THE PARTNERS The Unalakleet Bible Camp is one of the primary ministries of CYAK. Covenant Bible Camp (CBC) is located on the North River, roughly ten miles from Unalakleet, Alaska. Bible Camp serves over 400 campers each summer ages nine to twenty-five. Campers come from over twenty different villages all over rural Alaska, though most campers hail from the Norton Sound, Yukon Delta, NANA region, and Kobuk area. A lot of other things happen at camp too. We eat great food, go on adventures, have some free time and enjoy different activities. Campers hear and often respond to the Gospel and experience a loving and safe family of believers who serve as staff.
