PROJECT CANAAN 10TH ANNIVERSARY TRIP/CAMP CANAAN

 

Trip Dates:  July 13th through July 23rd, 2019

In July 2019 we will be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Project Canaan, and you are invited to join us on a very special trip to Swaziland to celebrate 10 years of HOPE! The team will depart the US/Canada on Saturday, July 13th and return on Monday, July 22nd, 2019.

This trip will be packed full with time spent on Project Canaan (including Camp Canaan), homestead visits, time with the children at our partner churches and a time of real celebration on HOPE mountain! We will have a formal celebration of the 10 years on the afternoon of Thursday, July 18th, which will include Swazi dignitaries from government, hospitals, police and local partners.  We will spend two days at our partner churches doing "well child check-ups" as well as delivering a wonderful celebratory meal for the children, complete with a 10th anniversary cake!

Sunday will be the highlight of the week featuring "Music on the Mountain!"  We will take our volunteers,  Emseni children and staff to the top of HOPE mountain for a music concert complete with worship teams from the US and eSwatini.  The communities from all around Project Canaan will be invited to attend and we will provide a hot meal (cooked by our local church partners) to everyone who comes to worship with us.

We have limited number of beds/rooms reserved at the Nkonyeni Golf Estate only 5KM from Project Canaan.  Rooms will be booked on a first-come-first serve basis and once those spaces are full, we will book rooms at the Lugogo Sun in Ezulweni (a 50-minute drive).  To reserve your space today, please register with a deposit of $250 by clicking the REGISTER button below.

 

The trip cost will include the ground costs of $1,800.00 PLUS the airline ticket cost if you are booking your ticket through Heart for Africa.  We will post trips costs with airfare as soon as we have them available.  The total trip cost below reflects round trip airfare from Atlanta (or STL-ATL-JNB or YYZ-ATL-JNB) to Johannesburg.  Heart for Africa can arrange a different feeder flight into Atlanta for an additional cost.  To make arrangements for flights into Atlanta please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Sarah Windham, at sarah@heartforafrica.org after you register for the trip.  Total trip costs will be posted when we have finalized costs with flights.
