Coast High School Camp in Kenya

April 18-21, 2018

Over 500 kids attended this high school camp on the coast in Kenya, including 33 Muslim students and 39 orphans. Thirty-two leaders and 38 work-crew volunteers served these students with the love and joy of Christ. At camp, students played crazy games, connected with their peers, ate delicious food and most importantly, heard the gospel message of Jesus Christ. We want to share with you two stories of incredible transformation to show just how much can change in three days at a Young Life camp.


“Thank you very much for enabling us (Muslims) to be part of this camp, I had a great time and enjoyed it so much. Everything was well planned and programmed. This has been the best experience of my life! Right when camp ended I asked my leader, ‘can I still come for another camp?’

Before coming to camp, I was a member of a gang, which has caused many people around me sleepless nights. I have also been involved in a couple of robberies and theft. Everything about this camp has produced good things. In this camp, I learned that I have a greater purpose in life which is to serve God by following Jesus.

I am really broken and feel so much remorse for the life I have been living, but I have committed myself to change and let go of my past life.”


“I want to say that I am really thankful to my leader for helping come to this wonderful camp. I am going home a different person than I was before coming to camp, I felt burdened by my sinful life, and I have laid down my burdens and followed Jesus.

The preaching was so powerful and sharing in cabin time was a big step in helping me make my greatest decision of following Jesus Christ. And everything else was so good for me.”

Praise God for His incredible transformations and for using Young Life to change lives in Kenya forever. We are praising Him for the 285 (over half the camp!) new believers through this camp alone. Join us in praying for them as they continue to grow in their new faith.
