Teens become mentors at YFC soccer camp


The Youth for Christ soccer camp at Columneetza welcomed 140 kids last week, according to Youth for Christ executive director Corwin Smid.

The annual event has been put on for more than 15 years.

One of the most unique things about the camp is that the coaches are teenagers.

“The teens get to give back to the younger kids. They were taught by other teenagers when they were young; now they can pass it on. The younger kids love having the teens here.

“Feedback is great: parents just love their kids coming here hanging out,” he added, “And it’s free to the community.”

Community businesses sponsor the soccer camp.

Each daily session included a lively, fun interactive discussion — something Smid called a God talk.

“This camp is all about the game and the fun but it’s also about Christ, that’s what we’re all about.
