In partnership with Zero by 2020 Vision, Shepherd’s Grove will sponsor a Soccer Camp here in Irvine for both foster kids and anyone in the local community. However, this is not your typical sports camp!

At every Ambassadors Camp, the goal is to:

  • Provide the highest quality soccer instruction.
  • Provide a positive and loving Christian environment. Each coach has the opportunity to demonstrate the love of Christ through activities and therefore has a positive, life-long impact on the children.
  • Challenge and present children with the opportunity to put their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The camp includes Bible times, testimonies and assemblies that clearly present the Good News.
  • Have fun! We desire that the soccer camp is a positive experience for the children, moms, dads, coaches and all involved!

Each camp is run by a team of international coaches who come from Ambassadors Football programs around the world. It is not unusual to have coaches in a camp from Africa, Brazil, England, Ireland, Holland, and many other parts of Europe. The learning takes place on and off the field as children gain a greater understanding of both soccer and the Gospel.

Ways for You to get involved in the Soccer Camp:

-If you have a child age 6-14, encourage them to participate.

-Sponsor a child. It costs $125 per child to attend, but any amount is appreciated. The total cost for the camp is around $10,000

Be a host family for coaches. We need five households to house soccer coaches for one week. We hope to have households lined up by the middle of June.

-Help at the camp! We need many volunteers 16 or older to help at the camp each day! Students can receive community service hours too! You can help whether you play soccer or not!

-Sponsor snacks for the camp.

Next Steps:

Register your child to participate on the Ambassadors website.

Give toward our soccer camp fund to sponsor foster children to participate.
