RE: Young Leaders for Camp Elim’s Disadvantaged Kids Camp. Hi, My name is David Hayes and I am the Manager at Camp Elim at Forster. Camp Elim is owned and operated by the churches of the Mid North Coast Baptist Association and I am looking for personable, mature, youngish (16 plus) Christians with lots of energy and a sense of humour. Their mission (should they accept it) is to assist in running a camp for 1113 year olds who come from disadvantaged backgrounds or who are children at risk. These kids who are from the North & Mid North Coast Area are sponsored by their local Lions Clubs. At camp we endeavour to give them a memorable and meaningful time for one week. Mandatory Training runs from Midday Saturday 13 th April to when the Kids arrive at around 3pm on Sunday 14th. This training time also gives opportunity for getting to know one another’s strengths, humour, idiosyncrasies etc. before camp as there will be no time once the kids arrive at camp. Camp finishes for kids just after breakfast on Saturday 20th April. Leaders finish after a debrief at around 11am.. usually followed by a farewell lunch at the Food Court in Stockland Shopping Centre. The camp is run with a Camp Dad and Mum, Tim & Darlene Erieau (former New Tribes Missionaries), A couple of youthful, tireless and energetic Directors of Funky Games, an even number of male and female leaders, 24 in total of 16 to 25 year olds provide the energy to make the camp happen with about 4 other more mature adults with good eyes, wise words and caring hearts completing the team. I am would also be grateful if you could offer any suggestions for the team. There is no cost to leaders apart from getting to and from Camp Elim and sometimes we can assist with car-pooling. If you have any questions please feel free to email or call. David Hayes 6554 0277, davidh51@bigpond.com 0428 512 312
