CBCK provides an opportunity for urban youth to encounter Christ in a camp environment.Our directors and staff support Kenyan youth as they mature into adulthood and reach their full potential spiritually, academically, physically and professionally.
Since its inception in December 2010, the camp has influenced over 7,000 children as they grow into young men and women of Kenya and other neighboring East Africa countries through discipleship and mentorship programs.
The founder Mr. Erick Agoro Simba was born and raised in Kibra in a family of seven. He grew up in a humble background and experienced a lot of poverty. Mr. Simba developed a passion to see the lives of the children, young men and women transformed in the slum of Kibra to live up to their God given abilities .
Mr. Simba founded the Christian Best Camps of Kenya in 2010 after serving in a Christian summer camp in the U.S.A (SB2W) for two years, The experience in the camp inspired Simba to adopt the camp model of raising young holistic Christian leaders through Mentorship and Discipleship programs. Christian Best Camps of Kenya provides an opportunity for urban youth to encounter Christ in a camp environment. CBCK envisions Kenyan youth maturing into adulthood and reaching their full potential spiritually, mentally, physically, and professionally.
Three Guiding Principals
- Christ as the center.
- Scripture as the reference point.
- Proclaim his Kingdom.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 (NIV)
1. Environmental transformation
The youth can strive to renew their surroundings in the slums through orderly dwellings, clean neighborhoods, and urban gardening.
2. Economic transformation
That at the proper time youth can be empowered to find employment and live with financial independence. We believe that our children, young men and women, should be wealth creators for their communities as guided by the word of God.
3. Social transformation
Children, young men and women of different ethnic backgrounds can learn to live with one another without fear or hostility. We seek to nurture the love of Christ and care for one another in our communities.
4. Partnership development
