Volley ball and Soccer Sports Camp....Service is our goal
People of Peru Project is planning a sports camp for poor children in Iquitos June 11-21 What a fantastic opportunity to interact and inspire kids who have had no opportunities. We are looking for Christian Athletes to join us as we build a team of people who care about kids. During this 2 week camp we will work with children through the medium of athletics to learn as much about life skills, leadership, honesty, dedication to our goals, and spiritual growth as we do about soccer and volley ball.
I am thrilled to tell you that Former two-time all-Pacific 10 Conference selection Lindsey Dion, will be joining us on this project. Her proven leadership as a high school and college all star, coach and professional basketball player will add a dynamic to this sports camp that will set a high standard for future endeavors.
