2017 Annual Open House

November 3-4, 2017 | Ephrata, Pennsylvania

Join us at the CAM
Annual Open House event!

You are invited to CAM’s 2017 Open House. Speakers will share about the devastation Hurricane Harvey recently brought to Texas, CAM’s work among refugees in the Middle East, how Gospel billboards are impacting seekers in the United States, and much more.
Expect to be informed and inspired! No event registration or admission fee is required.

Our exhibit area will include:

    • Liberian medical clinic. What would it be like if your doctor diagnosed a serious sickness but had no medicines to help you? See how clinics in the developing world often operate with minimal resources and even do without basic medicines and supplies.
    • South Sudan exhibit. Learn about CAM projects in one of the world’s neediest countries. Listen to Samiya’s story to get a glimpse of tribal life in South Sudan from a child’s perspective.
    • Haitian schoolhouse. Let your children sit inside a replica of a Haitian schoolhouse and experience the sights of a Haitian classroom.
    • Refugee tent. Feel the cramped spaces of a refugee tent, similar to what millions of refugees in the Middle East call home.
    • Informational displays. See cultural items from various countries where CAM operates and read about world poverty.

Throughout the day on Saturday is an excellent time to browse our exhibits before the crowd arrives for the evening slide presentation.
