CAMP BARNABAS (JULY 21-27, 2018)

Camp Barnabas is a camp that exists to provide life-changing experiences for people with physical or mental disabilities. They do this through week long summer camp experiences at their facility in Purdy, MO. Each year, LCF takes a group of students to serve at the camp for a week. For numerous current and former LCF students, serving a week at Camp Barnabas has been a life changing experience that has deepened their faith. Our prayer is that this year will be no exception. Below is the information about when we'll be going, what week we'll be serving, and how you/your student can apply to come with us.

*14-15 year olds serve as Barnstormers. The Barnstormer position isn’t for the faint-hearted.

Summer staff lead the Barnstormers in their tasks and help them to have fun and grow spiritually. This position is also a training ground for cabin counselors. Each barnstormer will be assigned to a camper cabin where they will get to interact with our campers and participate in daily activities.

16-29 years olds serve as Cabin Counselors. Each counselor is assigned to work one-on-one with one of our campers. The job of the counselor is to completely set aside their own needs and wants to care for all the needs of their campers while making sure that the campers have as much fun as possible. We are looking for compassionate, caring, mature individuals who are ready and willing to share God’s love with everyone at camp.
