Summer Service Project

Summer service project 2019 Tied fleece blanket

Each year, campers at Carol Joy Holling Camp, Sullivan Hills Camp and Day Camp participate in a service project as a way to serve as God’s hands in the world. Since 2010, these projects have been done in partnership with other organizations that address various issues locally, nationally and internationally.

 

For the 2019 Summer Service Project, campers will learn about depression and anxiety. We will be making fleece blankets for Lutheran Family Services to give to those affected by depression and anxiety.

Volunteer with the Summer Service Project

We are seeking volunteers to teach campers how to tie fleece blankets. We can use volunteers with various levels of experience and we will work to find the best place for you based on your comfort and skill level.

 

Volunteers will receive...

  • All equipment and supplies

  • A camp t-shirt

  • All meals while at camp

  • Daily devotion and prayer

  • Overnight housing, if needed and as available

  • Staff training and support

  • Gracious hospitality
     

Volunteers will give...

  • Hands-on guidance for campers and staff

  • Lots of fun conversations

  • Their love of God and serving others

  • Their time

 

For each day of camp, 4-5 volunteers are needed, and volunteers will be placed on a first-come, first-served basis. Typical hours are from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. You can choose to come for all or part of the day.

 

If you know of others who should be invited to volunteer, please contact Katherine Albin by email at KAlbin@NLOM.org or by phone at 402-944-2544. Because volunteers will be working closely with campers, our policy requires each volunteer to complete a background check and an adult health history form.

Each volunteer is invited and encouraged to come as often as you can, as consistency will help this project run smoothly throughout the summer. If you are unable to consistently volunteer, we ask that you choose a minimum of two days.
