Camp Lakewood Counselor position opening

May 24, 2017 General

We are directing a WOW (Workshop of Wonders), awesome Mini Camp at Camp Lakewood this summer and would like to invite you to join our team!  The camp runs from Sunday, June 18 to Tuesday, June 20 (though counselors would need to arrive on Saturday June 17 by 1:00pm) and is for children entering grades Kindergarten through 2nd grade.

At camp, the children will explore the love of Jesus through Bible teaching, lots of activities and caring relationships.  We need you to love and guide these campers!

Would you be willing to serve as a Counselor or Junior Counselor this summer?  We are looking for people who love the Lord, love younger elementary kids, and love the camp setting.  The minimum age requirement for counselors is 18 years, and 15 years for junior counselors.  We need both!  Attached are some expectations and responsibilities of being a counselor.

If interested, please go to http://impact2818.org/volunteers/registration/index.html and register online.  Also email or call Marlene and let her know of your interest.   If you know of others you think would enjoy counseling, please send their contact information to Marlene, or have them contact her.  We are planning for a full camp of about 75 active kids and need your help to provide adequate staff.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration.  We look forward to working with you or others you may send our way.

Serving the Lord Together,
