Thank you for your interest in the Child Sponsorship Trip! You will be very blessed to have this special time with your sponsored child(ren) this summer. As preparations are underway for your trip, we need to know the type of trip you would like to make and the names of the children you would like to visit. Below are the three types of trips:
1. Legacy Academy Child Sponsorship Party
The most popular option for those that have more than just a couple of sponsored children is the Legacy Academy Child Sponsorship Party held on the Saturday morning after your week of Camp Life. At this party you, as a sponsor, will be able to interact, eat food, play games and have fun together in a group setting.
Each child in attendance at your party will receive the following items:
- Food and drink at the party
- 50-pound bag of mealie meal (this is the staple food product eaten in Zambia)
- Large string backpack (this will be shipped in advance for you to pre-fill prior to going to Zambia.)
- Transportation (when needed)
A list of suggested and restricted gift items for you to put in the backpack will be emailed to you.
2. Child Sponsorship Home Visit
If you would like to participate in a home visit and bring your child and their caretaker gifts of food and other items, you may want to participate in Child Sponsorship Home Visit. These home visits occur the Saturday following your week of Camp Life. Total number of home visits limited to 4.
3. Tree of Life Hilltop Picnic
If you have children that you sponsor in Family Legacy’s full-time care at the Tree of Life Children’s Village, you have the option to participate in the Tree of Life hilltop picnic for Saturday lunch after your week of Camp Life. You are also allowed to invite the children that live in your sponsored child’s house as well as other “connected children” that you have had in your Camp Life groups in previous years.
Each person on your application who stays over Friday night to participate or tag-along on a sponsorship trip extension pays $250/person. This additional cost covers the lodging, food, and transportation of each individual.
Due to limited time constraints, participants may not select more than TWO of the THREE possible sponsorship trip options.
Pricing for your Child Sponsorship Trip is as follows:
Cost per family member (that will be participating in Child Sponsorship Trip): $250
Cost per Home Visit (limited to 4): $100
Cost per child attending Legacy Academy Party: $40
Cost per child attending Tree of Life Picnic: $15
All trips will be the Saturday following your week of camp unless otherwise requested. Price will be reflected in your total on your Missions Control page.
