Wonder Valley / Joni & Friends Retreat

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Dates:: March 28 – April 2, 2010

Cost:: $475.00 (includes all housing and food for week)

Mission: As a Short Term Missionary (STM) you will be assigned to a family that has a member with a disability. Your mission is to show that family the love of Christ through your willingness to serve them! For the duration of the camp your job will be assisting that family by partnering with the member with the disability. This person will be your “camper” for the week. You will accompany your camper to their age-specific program, engage in organized activities with them, and eat meals with their family. Most importantly, you are a caring friend to your camper.

Food & Lodging: The accommodations are hotel-style dorm rooms, and there are 5-6 STMs per room. Each room has a bathroom and a place to store clothing. Provided for each individual is a bed, linens, and towel. There is also lodging available for small families or married couples. All meals are provided for the week, and you will not go hungry!

Qualifications: STMs must be at least 17 years of age. Exceptions are case-specific. We will consider any individual who is willing to represent Christ by serving a family affected by disability. If you have any special talents (photography, singing, drama, life guarding, etc) please let us know; we would love to plug you in during the week!

Training: You don’t need experience with special needs to serve as a STM! You will be trained on-site for the first day and a half. You will also receive a training manual prior to retreat that will help you prepare for the week.

Apply:: Applications will be open November 15 – March 1, or until the teams are full.
