GSLC Youth Servant Event - July 12-15, 2009

All GSLC youth (6th - 12th grade) are encouraged to participate in our first servant event at Camp Okoboji in Milford, IA.  We will leave from church at 1:00 PM on Sunday July, 12 and return to the church at 4:00 PM on Wednesday, July 15.

During the event we will assist the Camp staff with a variety of property and facility improvements like painting, building, cleaning and trimming.  But the trip won't be all work and no play!  There will be plenty of opportunities for us to swim, boat, hike, hang out around the camp fire, and engage in all kinds of team building and fellowship.  

The cost of the trip is $15.00 per person and will cover transportation and snacks while on the road.  Room and board will be provided by the camp as well as all work equipment and materials.  The cabin can accommodate 22 youth and participation will be first come/first serve.  To reserve your space you will need to submit both your $15.00 payment and a permission slip by NO LATER than Sunday, July 5.  Both must be submitted for your space to be reserved. 

It is highly recommended that you bring the following items:

Work clothes, Bible, durable boots or shoes, work gloves, a hat, bug spray, sweatshirt, raincoat, bathroom/shower kit, pillow, sleeping bag, swim suit, beach towel, bath towel, sunscreen, money for the camp store (if you want), a notebook, and your favorite board game to share.


We need two adult chaperons (1 male & 1 female) to help during the event.  Please contact Pastor Jonah for more information regarding the chaperon role or to volunteer.
