It’s About the Campers!

Curious about how you can get involved in the summer camp program? If you are a leader in our summer camp program or want to be one, this is for you! 

“It’s About the Campers!”
6 p.m. – 2 p.m.
January 5-6
Disciples Center at Tawakoni

 

Instead of the traditional “director’s training,” the Camp Program Team is bringing together current and future camp adults and those who are curious about whether they might fit into the program, to share their wisdom and learn from others about best practices in various leadership roles:

  • directors and chaplains
  • counselors
  • nurses
  • camp interns
  • counselors-in-training
  • maintenance volunteers

There’s something here for everyone who cares about summer church camp ministry, to learn more about how the pieces fit together and how each person contributes to the whole. Don’t assume–come and find out!

Michael Davison from the Oklahoma Region camping programs will keynote. Michael is an ordained minister serving as Associate Regional Minister in Oklahoma and has served as keynote speaker for KCYF Spring Retreat.  He knows youth, and knows camp as well!
