This amazing team of youth and young adults – supported by Lisa Munro (Camp Spirit Program Animator) and Cathy Cryder (Camp Spirit Executive Director) are well into the second to last week of Camp Spirit 2023. This week, teams are offering camps in Whitehorse, Nelson, Cumberland, and Prince George.
The Camp Spirit 2023 Summer Staff team are joined by Youth Crew at most locations. And, many Communities of Faith have gathered volunteers to do everything from set up, clean up, kitchen support, food coordination, supply work bees and hosting. Volunteers have led activities like needle felting, origami, creating steppingstones, storytelling, knitting, and much more.
By the end of our 2023 summer season, next week already, Camp Spirit will have engaged with 28 Communities of Faith throughout the Pacific Mountain Regional Council. Youth Crew from the Lower mainland, Vancouver Island, Northern BC, and the Kootenays will have been trained and will offer program and camper support. The Camp Spirit Theme Song will have been sung at least 150 times by at least 700 people. Those same 700 people will participate in connected, inclusive, intentional, Christian community that is “Rooted and Growing in Love”.
