IYF English Camp Highlights

IYF English Camp - Spiritual Development

Spiritual Develpment

In a series of insightful, life-changing sessions, the Bible is used to help us navigate through our hearts and discover the reasons for isolation, sadness, and hopelessness. We emerge knowing how to resolve these problems through faith.
IYF English Camp - English Lecture

English Lectures

Volunteers deliver lectures one topic at a time and at the right pace to match English levels. Lectures emphasize the basics of grammar to establish a solid language foundation.
IYF English Camp - Academies

IYF Academy

Students have a genuine chance to discover a lifelong passion through hands-on courses from a wide range of engaging classes in a variety of professions. Academies range from cooking to photography.
IYF English Camp - Group Activities

Group Activities

Group work is crucial to IYF English Camp because not all students learn at the same place. It also allows instructors to conduct real-time assessments, identify individual learning needs, and develop ways to meet them. Activities include English-learning games and group fellowship.
IYF English Camp - Song & Dance

Song & Dance

Music is one of the best ways to learn and practice English. Volunteers study lyrics and phrases of meaningful songs and present the lessons in English. The goal is to provide fun and challenging ways to take students’ English skills to the next level.
IYF English Camp - Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunt

The flagship event of IYF English Camp. Scavenger Hunt is a group competition where teams race to solve riddles, use clues, and find hidden treasures. But the joy participants gain may be the real treasure. All missions are completed in English.
IYF English Camp - Performances

Musical Performances

IYF English Camp volunteers deliver dazzling stage performances. Authentic songs and dances from around the world bring the sights and sounds of the world to one stage. A healthy dose of world culture can broaden any heart.

What Volunteers Say

I have done many things with IYF, but nothing compares to the ten days I spent in Haiti. We can all make a difference in at least one life. Seeing things firsthand gives me hope for my future and hope for America. Thank you Haiti, for teaching me how to rejoice and jump for joy.

I was nervous once it began because I’ve never taught before. But I met the students and they showed so much love and compassion towards me, it shocked me in a great way. I remember when I told them I was a vegetarian and couldn’t eat the tacos, they went ahead and brought me food. I was thankful beyond words. I opened up to them and in return, I gained loving friends for eternity.

Haiti was such a great experience! All the students were very humble and eager to learn. I made lots of friends I’ll never forget; students and volunteers. There were a lot of things IYF did right, I was very impressed. I can’t wait to go back to Haiti and continue with the next IYF camp!

It was a good time for us to connect through our experiences, despite coming from different backgrounds. When it was time to leave, one of my students shared that my fellow teacher and I were like big sisters that she never had. That touched my heart and made the whole experience at IYF English Camp totally worthwhile. I definitely want to continue to volunteer myself. To touch other people in any way that I can, because it is the most rewarding feeling in the entire world.
