July 2017 Summer Service Trip - Camp Canaan

Volunteers for this trip will have the opportunity to work with a group of Project Canaan Children all week as we bring "Camp Canaan" to the kids.  This camp would work like a Vacation Bible School for the kids with the following camp activities:  baking, crafts, tractor rides around the farm, reading time, outdoor games, little theater/song/dance, and preparing banners and food to take out for celebrations with our partner churches on Saturday and Sunday.  For those who are more interested in work projects on the farm, there are opportunities available in that aspect as well.  An optional safari at Hlane Game Park will be made available to those who wish to go.  Teams will stay at the Nkonyeni Golf Resort just minutes from Project Canaan.

The trip cost will include the ground costs of $1,650 PLUS the airline ticket cost if you are booking your ticket through Heart for Africa.  The total trip cost below reflects round trip airfare from Atlanta (or STL-ATL-JNB) to Johannesburg.  Heart for Africa can arrange a feeder flight into Atlanta for an additional cost.  To make arrangements for flights into Atlanta please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Julie Wilkerson, at julie@heartforafrica.org after you register for the trip. 

  • Limited to 45 volunteers
  • If you have a preference as to which church community you would like to serve in please let us know upon registration and we will do our best to accommodate your request. Requests will be taken in order and will depend on the number of total trip participants.
If making your travel arrangements through Heart for Africa, you will depart the United States on July 15th and arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa on July 16th.  At the conclusion of the trip, you will depart South Africa July 24th and arrive in the United States on July 25th.


*Please note:  The cost with airfare is based on our blocked seating rate with the airlines.  Volunteers must register with air by April 10, 2018 in order to get the blocked seating rate.  For registrations after this date, we will book individual tickets at the regular published fare at the time.  If we do not have more than ten people sign up with airfare by April 10, 2018, we cannot keep our block and we will need to book individual tickets.  The total trip cost my change according to airline rates at the time.
