Camp Grandview Coming Soon!
The brochures will be in the mail soon to sign up for
both weeks of Camp Grandview. We will also have
additional copies in the Gathering Space. We are so
thankful for the leadership of Paige Wagner and
Wendy Gaunt, who will take on the biggest task of
designing our camp weeks. However, there are many
other ways that we need your help to make camp
In 2016, we had 51 kids, and with many coming both
weeks, that equals 72 served. We had 21 youth helpers,
including in the nursery, and 27 adult helpers,
including kitchen volunteers.
For 2017, we will again have 2 weeks of programming.
The dates are July 17-20 and August 7-10. Would you
We expect to need:
10-12 youth counselors per week
8-10 adult helpers per week
4 musicians for the first week
1 lead meal coordinator per week
4-8 additional volunteers weekly to make lunches.
Which week works for you? Where would you like to
help? New volunteers, returning volunteers, and
kitchen volunteers will have training dates posted soon.
