We are pleased to announce another way for ministers to become involved with our ministry at Camp Walter Scott. During our five core youth summer camps, we are inviting ministers in CCIW congregations and other ministries to volunteer as cooks at the camp. Along with another kitchen volunteer and under the supervision of our resident minister and caretaker, you’ll prepare simple food that will nourish the bodies of our campers and staff and then clean the dishes using our industrial dishwasher. We are asking for congregations to allow their ministers to participate without using any vacation time or continuing ed, but as a way to nourish their ministers and the larger church. To facilitate this, some of our regional staff will be available to fill the pulpit in your congregation the Sunday following your time at camp. Additionally, we will be offering grants to congregations/ministries who participate to use for youth, intergenerational, or Creation care ministries in their local contexts (up to $500/ea). We will award one grant per core youth camp to the first applicant for each respective week (though multiple ministers are welcome to volunteer the same week). We ask you to prayerfully consider this program and to fill out the form below to apply.
