Camp planned for ‘Third Culture Kids’

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA — The first “Global Reunion,” a five-day camp at Oklahoma Christian University, will focus on the needs of missionaries’ children, organizer Nancy Hartman said.
Hartman, who served as a missionary in Australia with her husband, Kent, said children who grow up in the mission field face challenges adjusting to life in the United States when their parents return home.
“At the camp we hope to let them know they are not alone,” Hartman said.
The Aug. 2-6 Global Reunion, targeted at ages 13 to 18, will help missionary kids “gain resources for their move to the U.S. and introduce them to some things in American culture that could otherwise confuse them,” Hartman said.
Camp counselors also will be “Third Culture Kids” who will share their re-entry experiences, said Dottie Schulz, director for missionary care for Missions Resource Network in Bedford, Texas.
