Our work aims to positively develop youth by supporting them on an athletic, social and educational level amongst other life aspects.
Our mission is to not only contribute in building champion athletes, but build champion people for life.
Our vision is to help create change makers that will drive positive change from within each community.
Initially created to only encourage youth participation in sports in order to support young people’s development, The Champ Camp has developed into an organisation that is tackling serious social issues on a community scale.
Our sports-based programs aim to provide youth with meaningful opportunities to participate in their society. By capitalizing on our long-term youth building model, we are allowing young people to engage in Al-Baqa’a Refugee Camp in an unprecedented manner.
The Champ Camp is allowing its beneficiaries to longer be confined in predefined societal positions. Our commitment to the mission of building champion people for life has meant that our safe space became a platform of growth for each young person on the quest of finding their purpose.
Al-Baqa’a Refugee Camp
The Champ Camp is located in the heart of world’s largest refugee camp for Palestinians: Al-Baqa’a. When it was first established as an emergency camp in 1968, Al-Baqa’a Refugee Camp had 5,000 tents for an estimated 26,000 Palestinian refugees.
Over five decades later, the camp currently hosts just over 220,000 Palestinian refugees who are still confronted to extreme economic and social challenges.
