$300 | Registration Required

This amazing service opportunity takes our students to Camp Barnabas, an amazing camp in Missouri that is specifically designed for mentally and physically disabled children so that they have the chance to experience summer camp – and it doesn’t happen without teenagers like ours who go and help run the camp and serve one-on-one with the campers attending the camp! It is a powerful experience of selflessness, service and love.

Rising 9th and 10th Graders serve as “Barnstormers” that help support the camp and the camper cabins without being directly responsible for one individual camper. Rising 11th Graders, 12th Graders, Graduated Seniors and College Students serve as “Counselors” and are partnered with a camper one-on-one as their primary caregiver all week.

This year, we will be serving alongside campers whose diagnoses include campers with autism, chronic diseases, and campers who are blind or deaf/hard of hearing! It’s a different group than we normally serve with, but we are so excited for this new adventure!

For more information about Camp Barnabas or to inquire about a spot, please contact Kat (kbair@myfumc.org). Please note that you must additionally complete Camp Barnabas’ registration on their website.

Scholarships are always available to help cover the cost of trips and retreats through the Chris Vardy Memorial Scholarship Fund.
