Dear Brother, Sister, and beloved Clergy.
It is with the utmost honor and respect to call upon you to serve The Lord’s flock as He did for us.
This year we will have the pleasure of teaching our beautiful campers and staff the 2019 theme. This coming year’s theme will be The Good Shepard in America, and will focus on sainthood, and their significance in the Holy Orthodox Church and our everyday lives as Christians.
This summer you will experience hard work, laughter, love, joy, and humility by working for the camper’s and your own salvation!
Through our daily prayers, services, and proper daily structure, we will aid in the spiritual growth of campers. For that, there is no better job.
There are many ways to serve this summer, you may involve yourself in more than one if you’d like!
We offer anyone who is above the age of 18, and has graduated high school the opportunity to serve. You may volunteer to work in the kitchen, with clergy, or even directly with the campers by applying to be a volunteer. All of which are equally rewarding in their own unique way.
I encourage all of you to participate, but please hurry and submit your application! Space runs out quick!
