Employment

Camp Bountiful is often looking to fill a couple of positions each summer. Please check us out again in the Spring to see what positions we will be hiring for Summer 2017.

SPEC/IYF

SPEC is a camp experience for youth who have completed grades 9-12. It is held in Lamoni, Iowa each year at the Graceland University campus.

Dates:  July 23 – 30, 2016

Fees: Cost $330 per camper until June 1
Cost $430 per camper after June 1

Make checks payable to EGLMC and mail check and completed registration forms and copy of Insurance card to Denise White, 71762 Prokes Road, St. Clairsville OH 43950

Note from the WOMC President:

We have typically charged the normal cost of Spec, an additional fee for transportation and another fee for shirts, pizza and breakfast. Last year the Mission Centers paid the cost of transportation, thereby reducing the cost to the campers, and the Mission Centers will again pay the cost of the bus this year.

We’ve just been advised that a donation from someone in Eastern Great Lakes Mission Center will now cover the cost of shirts, pizza, etc., so our costs will be reduced even further.

The total cost for 2016 will now be $330 for early registration (by June 1) and $430 for late registration.  This is $100 less than we charged campers in 2014 and $65 less than last year. We believe with this further reduction in the cost of attending Spec, we should not plan on any further financial assistance being available.

While we don’t have much financial assistance available for Spec, those who need assistance should contact Karie Kutzly,moc.l1481046568oa@ei1481046568raktn1481046568erb1481046568  to see what might be available.
