CAMP SKILLZ HISTORY
G.O.D. International has its headquarters in the Hopewell neighborhood, and has spent many years serving immigrants and refugees throughout Nashville. In working with kids throughout the summer months we noticed something. There were a lot of kids, with a lot of nothing to do. Summer camps were neither local or affordable to them. This led to a lot of downtime, or as we saw it: a window of opportunity. In 2011 we started Camp Skillz. Today, Camp Skillz has provided a summer camp opportunity to over 1,000 kids in the Nashville area!
Since that first year, we’ve focused each camper’s experience on building relationships with one another. Though they learn lots of skills, like bike repair, harvesting vegetables or choreography, they also learn that the most important skill they can obtain is related to their character. Campers are rewarded not just for winning a race, but for showing compassion, endurance, patience or kindness.
They learned a lot and so did we. Each year, we aim to make Camp Skillz better--if we don’t, where’s the fun?! The steady return of campers each year and the hype that accompanies the camp is encouraging evidence that we are doing that. From a two-week program of only a few dozen kids to a 5-week camp for over 100 campers, we are as committed to our mission as we were at the start.
