Middle School Serve
Middle School Serve students have a unique opportunity to be part of a community of peers that grow in faith together while helping campers to have the same great week of camp they had as kids. Our hope is that they continue to develop a deep sense of community, service, and spiritual growth within the context of serving at KidsFest. Students currently in grades 6-8 can apply to volunteer for one week of camp in either Arts & Crafts or Free Choice, where they will be working hard to assist the adult volunteers and make KidsFest the best week of a campers summer.
Middle School Serve positions are limited and priority will be given to students who are involved in Middle School Ministry at Orchard Hill Church. Applications will be accepted through April 30, with decision letters mailed out in early May.
