Summer Camp Opportunities
—-The McPherson CoB is again offering rides for youth who will be attending Camp Colorado this summer. Rides are also available for staff, counselors, cooks, etc. In order to have sufficient processing time, please contact the Church Office by Tuesday, May 28, to reserve a seat. Currently, drivers are needed for Senior High, Junior, and Pre-Junior Camp. If you are willing to drive, please contact Jerry Bowen (620-504-2773), Lisa Goering (620-755-2876) or Paul Ullom-Minnich (620-345-3233) as soon as possible.
—-Sarah Hendricks, who will be directing Pre-Junior Camp at Camp Colorado (June 23-27), is in need of a nurse and a male counselor. Please consider these opportunities or pass the information on to others who might be interested. Contact Sarah (firstname.lastname@example.org or 620-480-0165).
—-Teams are forming now for making the lives of children more meaningful and fun. Directors for Camp Mount Hermon and Camp Colorado seek enthusiastic adults to spend only one week of their summer as counselors for our district kids. Volunteers like you are key to providing an introduction to nature and faith, an example of living in Christian community, and a challenge to have a good time without technological devices. Camp counseling is your opportunity to share the joys of camp with the next generation. Contact Jan Hurst (620-245-0009 or email@example.com) for your place on a camp leadership team. There’s a S-more with your name on it!
