Register for Hands and Feet Camp!
By Susan Shinn Turner
Hands and Feet Camp is July 8-11 at
St. John’s. This servant day camp for rising third- through fifth-graders will take place 9 am-3:30 pm daily. The high school volunteers who are leading the camp have just finished up the schedule, which will include two service projects each day at local non-profit organizations, Kai says.
Some 17 high school volunteers will lead the camp, which carries the theme, “Aligned to the Vine,” based on John 15:1-5, Kai says.
“Our Hands and Feet Camp was modeled after WOW in Knoxville,” Kai explains. “There, they have a team of high school and college students who sit down and plan all the events, creating leadership from behind. The younger kids get a lot out of seeing the high school kids take so much ownership of this camp.”
There will be high school students on the meal team (providing meals and snacks), the Bible study team with Pastor Laura, the craft team, and the worship team, which will create opening and closing events each day.
Cost is $100. There are 20 spaces available for campers.
“For transportation and logistics purposes, we cap the camp at 20,” Kai says, “and we usually have a waiting list.”
Along with the high school volunteers, Kai will lead Hands and Feet Camp, assisted by Pastor Laura and Stacey.
