Summer Camp 2013

Submitted by CAP Volunteer on Fri, 01/18/2013 - 08:18

Want to do something meaningful this summer? Christian Appalachian Project is currently accepting applications for volunteer summer camp counselors, lifeguards, office helpers, nurses and arts & crafts instructors. Our camps are nestled in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of Eastern Kentucky, and our campers come from some of the poorest communities in the nation. Summer camp volunteers have the opportunity to give children from low-income families a week to have fun, learn respect for themselves and others, and encounter Christ through the faith in action of our volunteers. If you have 3-9 weeks to give this summer, you can make a difference in the life of a child and meet other people of faith from across the country.

Apply by April 19 for priority consideration!

Contact us if you have any questions. We'd love to hear from you!
My summer camp volunteer experience was truly life-changing. I went into the summer with an open mind, ready to learn and work with the kids and I left feeling like a completely new person. I now feel the spirit of God in so many things that before this experience, I may have taken for granted.

Well, summer camps are best time pass of children in vacations. Children rarely want to do studies in vacations, therefore, summer camp is the best way to let them learn something creative.
