Now Recruiting Volunteers for Day & Jr. Day Camp July 23-27

This summer we will continue to offer two different camps for our vacation bible school.  The theme for both is Beyond Belief-The Universe of God.   Day Camp, led by Crestfield staff, is an all-day faith-building experience for elementary youth in completed 1st – 5th grades.  Jr. Day Camp happens from 9am-12pm, and is for children in preschool (must be potty-trained) up to completed Kindergarten.  Jr. Day Camp is run by Bower Hill Church staff and volunteers.

The CE committee envisions using this

week-long summer ministry as a tool to reach out into our community to invite friends and family to Bower Hill.  We are excited to be preparing for an increased number of youth in both camps and we need your help!  Please sign up on the bulletin board outside the Friendship room.  Complete details on the volunteer opportunities are there as well.

All adults helping with Jr. Day Camp must be Approved Adults.  Approved adult application forms are on the bulletin board by the Friendship Room.  This is an easy (and free) process that can be accomplished from any computer.  If you already have your clearances through a school or another organization, you don’t need to repeat the process; you can use copies of that information.  Lastly, in a few weeks look for a “WISH” tree, filled with the supplies and monetary donations needed to support Jr. Day Camp.  Thanks for your help in supporting Bower Hill youth!
