Spring Work Teams Needed!

In addition to our regular grounds preparation for Spring, the 2 beautiful snows we had in January caused damage to trees and structures. With our school groups and retreat groups in full swing and summer campers here in a few weeks, there are many tasks which need to be accomplished to keep our facility ready for all our guests.

We have a real need for help in May. There is much debris, trees need to be cut for firewood (we do have an automatic splitter), trails cleared and painting accomplished. If your church group would like to help, please let us know.

We will tailor the day or weekend to your groups’ needs and talents.

Please contact Kate Metts, director, at kate@donleecenter.org to schedule your group.

Confirmation Retreat set for early March

Our Confirmation Retreat, March 2-3, is not just about getting away, but also moving toward – moving toward God, other Christians, and a deeper understanding of our faith. This one night retreat will guide youth in confirmation to recognize, affirm and accept their identity as Christians in the United Methodist Church.

This retreat is wonderful for churches with only 2 or 3 youth in confirmation, as well as churches with 20 or more. Please plan to bring an adult leader for every  five youth.

We will begin Friday night and finish with dinner on Saturday. Clergy are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Registered Nurse or Physicians still needed for Summer Camp

We are still in need of volunteer RNs or physicians to be with us during summer camp. Weeks available are Week 5 (July 8-14), Week 6 (July 15-21), Week 7 (July 22-28) and Week 9 (Aug. 5-11).

In exchange for your service to camp, we provide one week of traditional camp to your child at no charge ($795 value). This amount can also be applied to the cost of multi-week camp experiences. While at camp, you reside in the Medical Center (it has air conditioning) and handle the health needs of campers and staff during the week. You also have a full-time health care assistant to work with you.

If you would like to volunteer or have questions regarding responsibilities, please contact the director, Kate Metts, at kate@doneleecenter.org or call 252.249.1106 ext. 23.
