Summer Service Project Volunteers

The 2017 Summer Service Project for Carol Joy Holling Camp (Ashland), Sullivan Hills Camp (Lodgepole) and Day Camp will focus on learning about service and how we are all called to perform service. Campers will then explore how they can do random acts of service here at camp, in their families, their schools, their communities and the world. To prepare the campers for when they leave here each of them will make a Service-To-Go Ninja Kit. These kits will have items to help them perform random acts of kindness, such as a notecard to write someone a thank you, seed bomb to plant, reminder card to take our garbage or a recipe card to help make dinner. We invite you to be a part of this!

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

* NOTE: We will be traveling on site by van between two different locations this year. There are a few stairs that volunteers will need to navigate.

For each date listed on the form, 4-5 volunteers are needed, and volunteers will be placed on a first-come, first-served basis. Typical hours are from 9 a.m. - 7 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 at 402-944-2544 or e-mail KAlbin@NLOM.org. 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 encouraged to come as often as you can, as consistency will help this project run smoothly throughout the summer. However, because we understand that volunteers have other obligations, we ask that you choose a minimum of two days.
