Thank you SO much for volunteering to help us at Adventure Camp this year. We wouldn’t be able to make camp happen without you. Camp is such a unique opportunity for students to get away from their “normal lives” and I have seen God use it in some incredibly life-changing ways. It is our heart that camp would be all about the middle schoolers and that everything we do would serve to funnel them toward Jesus.
Here are some of the key camp roles to be aware of:
- Michael Engelking – Middle School Pastor
- Katrina Kennedy – Camp Director/Student Ministries Director
- Brandon Warren – Student Ministries Director
- Robert Beckley – High School Director
- Andrae Snegirev, Kaylee Anderson – RIOT Interns
- Greta Bryson – Worship Director
- David Johnson – Camp Speaker
- Tiffany Schomus – Camp Nurse
- Wendy Phelps-Chapman – Kitchen Guru
- Jerry Hochderffer – Pit Crew
Students will be given designated boys and girls sleeping areas where they will set up tents. There is plenty of space for staff to set up tents in various locations at camp. There will also be a couple buildings available for staff to use.
We have a team of over 75 volunteers coming to serve our students. Two of the best things you can do for us is be a team player and be flexible when things don’t go according to plan. We have included a camp schedule for you to become familiar with.
For all volunteers, in addition to a Safety Waiver, we require a Code of Conduct and an Adult Volunteer Contract. These forms will be available when you register online or by clicking on the links provided.
PLEASE REGISTER ONLINE BY FRIDAY, JULY 6 AT 4 PM (THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL PAY FOR EITHER OF THE APPLICABLE COSTS LISTED BELOW) AND HAVE FORMS COMPLETED AND RETURNED BY THE TIME WE LEAVE.
In order to keep camp costs affordable to students, there are a couple additional costs to be aware of:
- $50 for each RV
- $20 for each child coming with adult staff member (as well as an online waiver)
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you have. Once again, we are so grateful that you are sacrificing your time and energy to come serve the ministry and the students at camp. It’s going to be a great year and we can’t wait to see what God has in store for us.
