Volunteers Needed

To help make Day Camp a success, we need support from the congregation. Not only do our member children participate, but we also have reached out to offer this opportunity to our community. The campers have come back year after year.

This year we need:

Adult Volunteers – We are required to have one volunteer 16 years of age or older for every 10 campers.  Help is also need to prepare and serve snacks.

Bible Preschool Helpers –  We need adults to assist our pre-schoolteacher, as Lutherhill only works with school-age campers.

Teen Volunteers – The Lutherhill staff as well as the Bible Preschool teachers need teens to assist with crafts, games,music, clean-up, and camper supervision.

Nurse for a Day –  We need one volunteer each day with medical training who will be available in case of emergency.

 Snacks – We need monetary donations to provide snacks for the campers for the five days of camp. We also hope to have enough funds for pizza and ice cream on Friday.

Meals

Lunch: We need monetary donations to purchase take-out food for the counselors’ lunches Monday through Thursday

Evening meals: We need dinner hosts for the Lutherhill staff Sunday through Thursday. In past years, we’ve had hosts who either invited the counselors to their homes or out to dinner or made donations of restaurant gift cards or cash so the campers could have a night out on their own.

A sign-up sheet for volunteers and donations will be in the Narthex by the Day Camp poster.
