Things are changing a lot at Camp Burnamwood. One of the really positive, exciting changes is that presbytery camps for high schoolers and middle schoolers are now being planned and led in large part by youth! This planning and leadership team is a group of high schoolers called the Youth Leadership Ministry. With the help of some college students and adults, the Youth Leadership Ministry meets monthly and decides everything from theme to games for the Transylvania Presbytery retreats and camps at Burnamwood. They also get the chance to volunteer for the Middle School camp.
Want to know another awesome thing about the Youth Leadership Ministry? They don’t just plan Burnamwood stuff for the High Schoolers and Middle Schoolers of the presbytery, they can also plan whatever they want for the youth of the presbytery. The possibilities are endless and the youth of the Youth Leadership Ministry get to pick! Mission projects, national Presbyterian events, you name it!
Okay, the last cool thing about the Youth Leadership Ministry. If you have completed 9th grade, you can be a part of it! This year (2020-2021) is our first year, so simply contact Rachel Mathews, Associate Pastor at Maxwell Street Presbyterican Church, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested. You’ll get the opportunity to grow in leadership skills, make friends with youth across the presbytery, and plan the youth events for the presbytery!
