Cookson Hills Sports Camp

Opportunity Overview

Overview

A team is being assembled from Southeast to work alongside Cookson Hills Christian Ministries, a ranch-like residential facility for at-risk children in Oklahoma. Our team will host a sports camp, including basketball and volleyball, for Cookson’s elementary, junior high and high school students. This is a great opportunity for anyone who has experience teaching, coaching, or playing -- an incredible way to share the love of Christ through sport.

Objectives

  • Providing a basketball and volleyball camp for students
  • Teaching students the important aspects of the games
  • Developing healthy relationships with students for the purpose of sharing Christ in a fresh new way
  • Increasing the confidence and sense of importance in the students
