Welcome Team

We have had great turnouts for the Sunday Welcome Team in June. Now we are gearing up for July! In addition to our summer staff, 12 to 15 volunteers are needed each Sunday to ensure the process runs smoothly!

Volunteers assist with greetings, parking, the camp store, registration, health screenings, dock duty and people-moving. They arrive by 1:15 pm and are done by 4 pm.

Please consider joining our Sunday Welcome Team. You are invited to wear a church or camp t-shirt and show your spirit. Even consider bringing a team from your church! RSVP by Wednesday to 618-787-2202 or dcinfo@duboiscenter.org.

Volunteers Needed: July 7, July 14 and July 21. The spots for July 7 & 21 are nearly full, but there are lots of opening for July 14.

Peace Works – This Year’s Camp Theme

Peace Works

Merriam-Webster defines peace this way: “a state of tranquility or quiet: as a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom keeping the peace.” In the Bible, the word takes on a different tone. The Hebrew word for peace – shalom – relates to concepts of totality or completeness, success, fulfillment, wholeness, harmony, security and well-being. Every culture has its own ways of describing peace and the work it requires.

Throughout camp sessions this summer, Bible verses will be paired with words and stories from around the world to explore how “Peace Works” and how each of us can live more peace-filled lives. For more information view our brochure online.

Don’t Delay – Register for Camp Today!

LEAD – June 23 – 28

Leadership Experience and Development – LEAD – is a great Camp session for young people who are interested in developing their leadership skills, working with younger children, and having a great time at DuBois Center!
LEAD functions much like a “lab school” with discussion, instruction, practice and evaluation sessions. Skills gained will help participants grow as positive Christian leaders, manage camp situations and camper behavior, create a safe, fun environment, and teach basic camp skills. LEAD is designed for youth who have completed grades 10-12. Check out this flyer for more details.
Previous camp experience is not required, but we do require a special application in addition to the Camp Registration Form. The LEAD application packet is available online or by contacting DuBois Center at email or 618-787-2202.
