I don’t know about you, but I love camp! I went to camps growing up as a kid and have very fond memories of my experiences. In fact my faith development as a young person in many ways is the result of the impact of the church camps I attended. That’s why I am looking so forward to our church hosting WinShape Camps for Communities in just a few weeks, June 15-19, at Cornerstone’s Hamilton Road site. I know the lives of kids will be impacted for eternity as a result of the events of this week. This is a great opportunity for our church to further our mission of leading people to know and serve Jesus.
Speaking of serving…we would love to see many of our youth, college students and adults volunteering to help make this a great experience. We have more than 250 campers signed up for camp already! Our greatest need right now is for volunteers. You can sign up for half-day sessions (for 1 or more half day sessions) or you can serve all week if you want. We need 30 volunteers at camp at all times. Please sign up using the links below. Or if you are at the Hamilton Road site on Sunday morning or anytime during office hours (Monday-Thursday 8:30 am-4:30 pm), visit the volunteer display in the lobby and go ahead and sign up.
Volunteers will serve alongside WinShape Camp staff. You will be welcoming campers, worshiping with campers, helping assist with camp activities, eating with campers – most importantly, you will share the love of Christ with kids from Cornerstone, kids from the community, children in foster care, and children from at-risk neighborhoods within our community. It’s an incredible opportunity to make an eternal difference in the lives of children, to connect with other volunteers, and to grow and be encouraged in your faith as you give of yourself.
As a camp volunteer you will get a cool volunteer t-shirt, lunch will be provided each day, and there is childcare for your younger children. Cornerstone will also be giving away five $20 gift cards to the WinShape Camp store that will be set up during the week of camp. The camp store will sell WinShape apparel, cups, and all kinds of fun WinShape goodies.
This week is going to be a blast! Hope to see you there!
