Refugee Simulation

Experience Life as a Refugee Family

Join us for an interactive experience where you take on the role of a refugee family; fleeing for your lives and struggling to find a new life beyond the challenges of a refugee camp.

Experience the difficult decisions involved in this life of upheaval and learn the process of applying for acceptance to be resettled in the U.S. by visiting "officials" from different vetting organizations. Your refugee family must pass interviews at each of these stations on your journey to resettlement.

This Refugee Simulation will increase your knowledge, empathy, and understanding of the journey traveled by refugees around the world.

Cost: $5

Who:

Come with your family, (ages 10+), your Life Group or on your own!

(NOTE: This experience does contain loud noises and events that might scare younger children. It also requires the ability to run across rough terrain.)

When:

Saturday, November 9th from 9AM to 12PM

Where:
