Hey There friends:

I have a great post in mind, but before I put it up here I wanted to put out an opportunity that might be of interest to some of your Seniors in your youth groups.

Camp Shiloh is a Christian summer camp for at-risk kids from New York City. I was the director there for ten years and I can personally attest to the power of serving there. This year, for some weird reason, they have been having a very hard time getting male counselors to fill out their counseling staff for the summer. With camp less than a month away they are still short two male counselors and they are trying to get the word out to as many people as possible.

It is my hope that among all of your ministries there might be two exceptional young men who would jump at the opportunity to come and serve on an adventure like this.

If you have a lot a questions please feel free to call me at the church. In short here are some of the details that you might need to know in passing along this opportunity to your guys.

1. Shiloh needs two 18 year old males who have a heart and nerve to serve at-risk kids from the inner-city.
2. The summer is divided up into four sessions with 80 kids at each session (40 boys and 40 girls).
3. There are 30 staff members total that primarily come from ACU, Harding, DLU, and Pepperdine.
4. There are 5 male and 5 female cabins with two counselors in each cabin.
5. The stipend is $750, round trip airfare to New York, food stipends for off weekends are included in the work contract
6. The dates are June 16 - August 12
7. Download the staff application here.
8. The campers are between the ages of 9 and 15.

If they do not find these two remaining staff members it would mean that 32 kids would not be able to come to camp because they would only have four male cabins instead of five. If you have any students who might be interested you can have them e-mail Sallie Chase who is the Camp Director this year.

I appreciate the opportuity to get the word out here.
