Summer of Service – Youth Program Needs

Volunteers Needed – LUM Camp & 5th Quarter

Volunteer opportunities with LUM Youth Programs this summer range from assisting students one-on-one any weekday to serving as a counselor at LUM Camp. Be an important person in the lives of children through the LUM Summer of Service. All they need is a willing heart and a helping hand. Below are two exciting opportunities to serve with local children.

LUM Camp is a weeklong overnight camp for boys and girls, ages 8, 9, and 10, from families served by Lafayette Urban Ministry. Scores of local children will jump on a bus and head to Hanging Rock Camp from July 27 to 30. LUM Camp includes nature hikes, arts and crafts, boating, swimming, morning chapel, wall-climbing, zip-lining, delicious meals, and caring staff and counselors.

LUM Camp—Counselors
Volunteers are needed from 11 a.m. on Monday, July 26 to 4 p.m. on Friday, July 30. With two other staff, volunteers oversee a small group of children during a four-day, overnight camp and support them with all camp activities. Training is provided. More.

5th Quarter Summer Learning Program (summer child care) welcomes students all summer-long, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The program includes math challenges, regular reading, experiential science labs, meals & snacks as well as recreation and fun. When the school year begins in the Fall, our students will be better prepared academically.
