Ready for a FULL WEEK at DuBois Center?

Full Week Photo

If your child will complete grades 3-5 this spring or summer, then it’s time to step up to Settler! New friends and lots of fun are just the beginning. Campers run, play, sing, eat, jump, act, create, splash, pray, hike, explore, build, ride and finally… sleep!

Growing and playing together, exploring God’s creation, building a Christian community – that’s Settler camp at DuBois Center. Three days just isn’t enough time to explore all that DuBois Center has to offer, so consider these sessions for the next step: June 9-14, June 23-28 and July 7-12.

Check out the camp brochure and register online. For more information or to receive materials by mail, contact the DuBois Center at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202.

Think Summer and SWIM!

Lifeguard

Moderate to strong swimmer? Enjoy spending time at the lake? Enjoy working with children and youth? Each summer we hire 7-8 young adults with Lifeguard certification to serve on our summer staff. If you are interested, NOW is the time to start swimming. Stay in shape this winter while preparing for a great summer job. Check out courses at your local college or university, rec center, YMCA or JCC. Hint: If your school offers a course – take it. Those classes are generally less expensive than community classes. Lifeguard certification classes also include First Aid and CPR certification, both of which are prerequisites for summer staff. Questions about lifeguard certification? Contact us at shirley.director@DuBoisCenter.org or
