Spring Star Party – March 20th

Star Party

What’s a Star Party? An evening of star gazing, with hot chocolate and snacks around the campfire! This specific night just might be one of the best nights of the season to check out the night sky – depending on the weather. Mark your calendars and join us as we celebrate the start of spring! Festivities are scheduled from 7 pm – 10 pm on March 20, the Spring Equinox, beginning with a bonfire and snacks at Picnic Point. The big open playing field in the Rustic Village will be our prime star-gazing location. Trams will run to and from this area from the toasty campfire at 7:30 pm and 8:30 pm. Bring your own binoculars or view the sky with provided equipment.

This is a FREE conference-wide, family-friendly event sponsored by Green DuBois. Dress warmly and bring your friends, neighbors, youth group or Sunday School class.

Camp Nurses — Servants with Sunscreen

BandAid

Band-Aids – YES, but so much more! One setting for ministry at DuBois Center is our health center. Volunteer nurses, most of whom are RNs, are a vital piece of our summer camp program. Serving as a camp nurse can be a very rewarding mission experience that is similar, yet very different than most traditional nursing positions. Responsibilities include reviewing camper medical forms, conducting health screenings, receiving and administering medications, providing first aid and basic medical treatment, and documentation. But when you really get down to it, nurses spend most of their time removing ticks, soothing rashes, distributing medications and providing extra TLC for homesick and nervous campers.

If you are an RN, please consider serving with us for a full or partial week. The living quarters do have AC, and there is often time to join us for worship, explore the woods or just sit back and read a book. For more information, contact Shirley at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202.

Volunteers are the Heart of DuBois Center

Volunteers are the heart of strong and healthy outdoor ministry programs. At DuBois Center, volunteers serve throughout the year on committees and teams, at the barn, in the office, on work projects, as retreat leaders and fund raisers. During the summer, there are a variety of ways to be involved and make a difference in the lives of the young people we serve. Join us for a few hours on a Sunday afternoon, a couple days during the week or a full session of camp. Volunteers work hand in hand with paid summer staff to provide our fun, engaging and faith-filled program.

For more information contact DuBois Center at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202. Volunteer applications are available online.
