CAMP STAFF TRAINING.
CAMP STAFF TRAINING.
I found a great article on 4 observations about what makes camp unique. If you as a parent are concerned about sending your child to camp, you need to read this article.
We are so excited for camp this summer. Maybe you've never been to camp before. It is such an incredible time to connect with new and old friends. You get to use your outside voice. Yes! You can experience the most important relationship in your life - your relationship with God. You can connect with the outside and use that outside voice. Yes! If you haven't registered yet for camp at Spencer Lake Kids Camp now is the time. We have two camps for boys and girls 3rd - 6th grade. They are held August 8-12 and August 15-19 2016. Check with your church and find out which week they are attending and register. If your church doesn't regularly attend Spencer Lake Kids Camp you can still signup. Talk to your pastors maybe they would be willing to send a group. If not that's ok, you are still welcome to attend the camp. We'll find a place for you. After all we'd love to hear your outside voice. You can find out more about Spencer Lake Kids Camp at. http://www.wnmdkids.org/index.php/kidmin/kids-camp
How can I prepare MYSELF to help parents or counselors register? (1) Read through the parent/staff FAQ pages. Find it Here (2) If you are serving as a camp counselor or if your own children are attending, use online registration—your experience will help you guide others. Even if you have no reason to register personally, explore the sites and start a registration so you can see how easy it is—information remains saved but incomplete if you do not submit and is easily deleted. (3) Call or email us with any questions.
