Dear Team Leader Applicant,
Thank you for your interest in serving at Power Camp! We are excited to see how this ministry grows and develops with your help. Power Camp is a is a faith-based day camp, aimed at using sports as an instrument for sharing the Gospel with children. Our vision is to create an opportunity to connect with our community and reach children with the truth of God’s love for them. We want to see a dedicated community of believers using their gifts and abilities to glorify God through sharing the Gospel.
Power Camp will be held from June 17th-20th, 2019, at Tuscarora Inn and Conference Center in Mount Bethel, Pa. The Camp is for children who have just completed 2nd grade thru 6th grade. Each day, campers will be dropped-off at the Auditorium between 8:30-9:00am and picked-up at 3:30pm. The day will consist of open recreation, large-group sessions and games, sports clinics, lunch, small-group time, team competitions and guest speakers. The clinics offered will be basketball, soccer, flag football and an arts and crafts option.
This event will be sponsored by Mount Bethel Church as a non-profit, fundraiser for the Youth Group. As such, the role of the Team Leader is vital to the success of the camp. As a Team Leader, you will be responsible for a group of 8-10 boys or girls of similar age to lead each day through the various scheduled activities. You will not only be sharing the Gospel with them each day as you lead them in a small group, but you will be responsible for showing and sharing the love of Christ through your actions and example! The sports clinics, competitions and speakers roles are, in some ways, secondary to the importance of our Team Leaders- YOU have the most potential for impact!
If you are interested in taking part in this camp, please prayerfully consider your role and availability. Your first step will be to fill-out the required application and provide two references. In addition to serving at camp from 8am-4pm, daily, we are requiring Team Leaders to participate in a mandatory training weekendimmediately prior to camp. The dates will be Saturday, June 15thto Sunday the 16th(details will be provided after acceptance.) This year’s process will be highly competitive and we are seeking leaders that are well disciplined, enthusiastic and of all ages. The recommendation form can either be mailed with your application or mailed separately. Both forms are available online. The deadline for us to receive applications and recommendation forms is May, 25th 2019. Once you are approved to serve, further information will be sent to you, including the Bible studies that you will lead. Any person who has the desire to share Christ with children can serve as a team leader. We are not looking for the best athletes, but the best servants!
