Opportunities for Youth Service

February 25, 2009

Have you ever thought, "I might like to work with young people sometime"? Well, there are opportunities right here, within the Cal-Nevada Conference of The United Methodist Church!


Conference Youth and Camping Ministries wants you to know about some upcoming events which need adult volunteers:


¨       Summer Camps – "Super Camp Jr. High" is looking for counselors, July 18-25. Over 21 is preferable, but volunteers must be over 18. "Sr. High Leadership Camp" is looking for counselors, and some program staff (music, sports and games, and a camp pastor). Volunteers must be at least 23 years of age. (Both camps are located at the Conference site at Lodestar.)

To volunteer for "Super Camp Jr. High," contact Dawn Pidlypchak at pastordawn@sbcglobal.net.

To volunteer for "Sr. High Leadership Camp," contact Kelly Newell at kellyn@calnevumc.org.

Visit the Conference Camping website at www.cnumc.org/camping for more information about these and other programs.

¨       Youth Delegation to ACS - One male and one female adult chaperones are needed, to help with the Youth Delegation to Annual Conference Session, June 17-20. All expenses are covered. Chaperones' responsibilities are supervision, and helping the youth get to where they need to be during the week. The program and schedule are planned: Youth and Camping just needs YOU to help make it happen! Contact Kelly Newell at kellyn@calnevumc.org, 916-374-1515 to volunteer.


These are great opportunities to serve the youth of this Conference. If you've ever thought about doing that … step out in faith and volunteer!
