What is Jungle Camp?
Ethnos Canada trains believers for church planting among unreached people groups. Our training program is called Emanate. One of the practicums is called “Jungle Camp”.
A former missionary candidate described Jungle Camp like this: “As a class, we spent two weeks building ‘homes’ that we would live in for four weeks. We were only allowed to use wood poles, plastic, twine, duct tape, and hand drilling for the construction of our house. This practicum does not mean that we will be living in plastic houses when we go overseas, but to simulate living in a totally different environment.”
In the past, we’ve held an open house for visitors to experience Jungle Camp for themselves. It was a great opportunity to see the unique homes and to hear from the missionary candidates what God has been teaching them while living off the grid. Often the lessons were less about survival and more about relying on God and working as a team.
In 2021, we are trying something new. Rather than having people visit in person, we are putting together a virtual tour. You will be able to look through each of the homes and read about each of the families from the comfort of your own home.
