East TN (Special Needs)
This new team will serve with a Christian camp provided for families who have a child(ren) with a special need or disability. You will be paired with a disabled child or adult to assist them throughout the week. It is your job to simply be a friend, giving the gift of your time and love. During the day you will provide service and friendship to your "buddy" with a disability, so that their parents can attend seminars, be pampered, and enjoy time together as a couple. There will a variety of activities to do with your buddy such as: fun games, worship time, swimming, miniature golf, etc. Through the simplicity of your service, you will have the opportunity to build relationships where you can share Christ's love and help them find hope in Jesus.
Whether you have experience working with those with disabilities or not, you are still welcome and needed on this trip! Everyone who attends will be fully trained before the camp begins, so that you will be prepared and have nothing to fear! To learn more about the camp, click the website listed under For More Info on right and click on the Family Retreat and Info for Volunteers descriptions.
Trip cost is $500 - not only does this cover your expenses, but you're also providing scholarships to cover the costs of the campers who attend!
