Disciples Center at Tawakoni—2018 Season

Assuming spring arrives, the Disciples Center is looking good and will be ready for the summer program. The new caretaker’s house is well underway! Electric and plumbing inspections are complete. The week of April 8, volunteers will hang sheetrock and do other projects to complete the house and to prepare the camp for summer. The painting will begin when the professional drywall finishing is done.

Summer Camp Interns:
Summer camp interns are Caleb Thompson from Pittsburg in his second year, Lauren Eagon, also from Pittsburg FCC, in her first year, and Mason Oswalt of Atchison, also a first-time intern. All three grew up in our camping program. Mason and Caleb will be our lifeguards. We’re pleased that Sid Rutland, manager last summer, is returning also. 

Camp Volunteers:
Leadership for the summer program began in January when directors, chaplains and counselors gathered for inspiration, training, and planning. Camp session directors are completing their planning now. To be a summer camp counselor, complete the Volunteer Application at www.kansasdisciples.org and send it to the Topeka office.

Register for Camp:
Register soon to get your choice of camp; some sessions will fill up before the Early Bird deadline. Scholarship applications were due March 31.
