T-minus 3 days (actually 2 days, 4 hours, 51 minutes) until campers arrive at Camp Wilderness Ridge. Last minute scheduling and preparations are being made as we speak!
Last weekend we had a training for all "SALT" staff. SALT stands for Servant And Leader Trainee, and these are young men age 13 to 17 who commit to serving at least 3 weeks of the summer. Some will be junior counselors and will help an older "Servant Leader" lead and stay in a cabin of eight campers. Some will be on kitchen, setup, or activities crews. This summer, I'm tasked with leading Bible studies and leadership development meetings with the SALTs. I'm pretty stoked to work with these guys who want to give their Summer to serve Jesus!
