Youth Camp volunteers needed!
Come be a part of what God is doing through the ministry of Prairie River Camp.

Camping has “worked" to reach lost kids.  It continues to “work” for the staff of prairie river as we introduce our campers to the person of Jesus Christ.

Camp helps loosen kids from the grip of the daily grind and uses ropes, horses, canoes, zorb balls and paintball.  Anyone still snoozing will snap out of it when they first step backward down the climbing wall or first step forward off the zip-line platform.  Camp works!  Campers come alive at camp.  And with clear eyes see Jesus Christ. Jesus looks a lot like YOU!

The best picture kids get of Christ at camp is the one they find surrounded by your frame. they hear about Him at club, they talk about Him in cabin time, they see Him reflected in the beauty of the landscape, but they encounter Christ in YOU! they have seen Him all year long walking around in the shoes of leaders in their churches and YFC ministries, but now they see Him without the distractions and interruptions of daily life at home.

There are many positions available to you as a  Volunteer or Summer Staff member, so you're sure to find an area that matches your gifting. If you would like to be a part of this 'picture' of reaching lost kids check out more below.
