Summer Camp Staff and Volunteers
Drift Creek’s summer camp programming depends on the hard work of many volunteers. We are grateful for the generosity of volunteers willing to share their God-given gifts and skills to enrich DCC programs. Volunteer opportunities include serving as a camp pastor, nurse, cook, crafts teacher, naturalist or special activities leader. If you have creative ideas on how you could contribute to the camp program, please contact DCC. We have two basic goals for the staff and campers in our summer camp program. These are to:
- Develop our relationship with Christ through service, fellowship, prayer, quiet reflection, worship, and Bible study
- Discover God’s goodness through Christ-centered community, exploration of creation, fun activities, and building relationships
If you are unfamiliar with DCC’s camp traditions, highlights include polar bear swimming in our pristine mountain stream, hikes through towering ancient forests, tubing around “the Loop”, exploring the wonder of Creation, morning chapel in the amphitheater surrounded by giant hemlocks, evening firesides with clear views of starry nights, and group games like Capture the Flag! We keep camps small with 50-85 campers each session. We find that smaller programs provide more opportunities for building meaningful relationships among campers, staff and volunteers.
