Student Volunteers will travel and conduct Sports Camps in multiple locations (churches). This experience is ideal for those interested in sports, those who enjoy working with campers in grades 1-6, as well as those that plan on going into teaching. This will be a summer full of sports, ministry, learning, growing and building relationships.
Staff will assist in putting on a week-long, Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm Sports Camp. They will 1) lead daily Bible studies, 2) teach a daily sports time, 3) assist with worship and recreation, and 4) participate in opening and closing ceremonies. A week-long training will prepare one for every aspect of camp you will lead.
The ministry to the student volunteers begins at our week-long Training Week where we lay the foundation for each week of camp. They will learn how we work with students and how we minister to them through Bible studies, sports time and other aspects of camp. Our onsite Camp Director will lead them daily in camp routine and expectations during each week of camp.
Their summer supervisor will meet with them throughout training week and regularly during the summer.
