July 2018 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, and little theater/song/dance.  For those who are more interested in work projects on the farm, there are opportunities available in that aspect as well.  Volunteers will also have the opportunity to participate in community visits 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 PLUS the airline ticket cost if you are booking your ticket through Heart for Africa.  Total trip cost includes round trip air from Atlanta 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 Sarah Windham at sarah@heartforafrica.org after registering for the trip. 

  • Limited to 45 volunteers

If making your travel arrangements through Heart for Africa, you will depart North America on July 15th and arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa on July 16th.  At the conclusion of the trip, you will depart South Africa on July 23rd and arrive back home on July 24th.

*Please note:  The cost with airfare is based on our blocked seating rate with the airlines.  Volunteers must register with air by April 10th, 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 sing up with airfare by April 10th, 2018, we cannot keep our block and we will need book individual tickets.  The total trip cost may change according to airline rates at the time.

Self Bookers (No airfare through Heart for Africa)

If you are self-booking your own airfare, you will need to coordinate your arrival and departure in South Africa with Heart for Africa in order to join the rest of the team.  Please contact Sarah Windham at sarah@heartforafrica.org with your travel arrangements.

Please note that Canada Revenue Agency does not permit issuance of official tax receipts for payments made towards service trips. 

The costs of the trips included lodging, meals, supplies, ground transportation, administrative fees and airfare (if you have elected for Heart for Africa to arrange the air portion of your trip).  Due to cost and exchange rate adjustments, any remaining funds will go toward the general support of the mission.
