2 Weeks of Craft Camp for Girls this Summer!

Anna's Craft Camp for a Cause
for Girls ages 7-12
June 16-20 OR Aug 4-8, 2014
9:30-12:30 
Here's Anna with the girls from camp last year. This will be Anna's 3rd year leading this craft camp.
held at the Soutters' home in Raleigh, NC
led by Anna Soutter (assisted by Su)
$125 per week
(this is a fundraiser to help support Anna's mission trip to Guatemala this summer)

Anna is offering 2 weeks of Craft Camp this summer! Pick your week: June 16-20 OR Aug 4-8 or sign up for both; the crafts will be different each week! Each day at Anna's camp, the crafty girls will make 2 crafts. . .really cool crafts that I promise you will not end up throwing away.


And half way thru the morning, the girls will take a break and move into the kitchen to make an edible foodie craft for snack. So really, each day the girls will make 3 crafts. 


Anna needs $2900 to go to Guatemala, because again, this summer she is going for 2 1/2 weeks! Any money above this, Anna will give to Brooke (her 13-year-old sister) because this year Brooke will join Anna in Guatemala for a week.  Actually, so will Rob because our church is going to Guatemala this summer (which Anna has longed for for a while. . to share Guatemala with her family, friends, and church).


This will be Anna's 4th time going to Guatemala. Anna and Rob went to Guatemala the summer of 2008 to love up on the children in a number of orphanages, including the one Jonathan (our 5th child) lived in for his first 10 months. Since then, Anna has had a heart for the children of Guatemala. Here is Anna from that summer (she was 11), whispering to a girl that she is indeed a princess and very much loved. 


Each July, Anna spends a week loving on the children of Casita Adonai. Casita Adonai is a small private Christian school in a difficult area of Guatemala City, an area devastated by poverty, gangs, and lack of education.  Here is Anna teaching the kids of Casita Adonai some dance moves:


Anna knows without a doubt that once she gets out of high school, she wants to live and serve the children of Guatemala full time. Below is Anna with the 3 kids she sponsors (If you are tugged to sponsor a child, Anna can definitely help you connect with one of Guatemala city's most vulnerable children. Details can be found here). Many of these children are orphans, living with grandparents or other family members. The rest of them live with their single mothers who struggle to earn $1 a day. The school, Casita Adonai provides a safe haven for these families and their children.



My Anna (who will be 17 in May ) is super crafty. My Anna is patient. My Anna loves pouring into those younger than she is. . .she is the oldest of 5, helps teach Sunday School to the elementary school kids, and purposely seeks out the younger girls at church to love on and pour into. This craft camp is right up her alley. (if your girl has attended Anna's camp before, I'd love for you to email me a "testimonial" about Anna and the camp so I can share with those who are thinking about coming).


If you would like to sign up your girl for Anna's Craft Camp, contact me with what week you are interested in and Anna and I will send you all the details. Space is limited; we can take 15 girls each week.
