Christian Camping International (CCI) is an alliance of 20 associations around the world.  

 CCI supports Christian camps and camping leaders in over 60 countries. 
 Christian camping is known to exist in an additional 40 countries that do not have the support of local associations.

 Believing that Christian camping is a powerful method to impact people for God's glory, CCI-Worldwde desires to see Christian camping grow around the world.

 

Just before the 21st of each month, CCI encourages people to pause and ask God to raise up the 21st association of camps and camping leaders.

 

Belize

Posted by Dan Bolin on OP4er @ 16:49

Belize is a relatively new country, gaining its independence in 1981.   This small, English speaking country on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico is home to almost one-third of a million people.    

Belize is a young country and its people are very young as well.  More than a third (36%) are 14 years of age or younger, the median age is 21.5 years, and only 8% are over 55 years old.  
  

Poverty, and its accompanying problems, are a part of the Belizean life.  More than four in ten (41.3%) of the people live below the poverty line.  The average family lives on less than $9,000 dollars a year.  Unemployment is reported at over 11%, it sits at 20% for young people ages 15 – 24.  The literacy rate in Belize stands at 70% and there is only one doctor for every 1,200 people in the country.

 92% of Belizeans identify themselves as Christians.  About two-thirds of these would claim a Roman Catholic heritage and the other third would hold some form of Protestantism.  For many, religion is a part of their cultural heritage and has little relevance to their personal lives.

Christian camping has made some headway in the small but beautiful country – but not much.  A few churches and youth ministries from the USA hold summer camps for the children of Belize.  At least one Christian campsite exists within the country.    

Please pray for this small but significant country.  Thank God for the camping ministries that are taking place in Belize and ask God to multiply their impact.  Also, ask God to develop a network of likeminded camping ministries in Belize to support and encourage one another.
