Announcing YoungLives 2011!

Look what showed up in my inbox today!  Better get to registering if you want to serve God by caring for the babies of teen mom during the best week of their lives and yours.  Seriously, 24/7 babies!  Yay!  (And it's really not 24/7 babies...I kid.  Childcare watches babies for about 8 hours a day.  Sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less.)
We will be at the August week at Lake Champion.  Yes, there is a cost to attend, but remember that most summer mission trips cost WAY more than $467.  You can totally raise the funds needed.  Contact me if you need more information!

Announcing YoungLives Childcare 2011!!
It's that time again! 
Hi Friends!!
Time to gear up for YoungLives summer camps! We hope that you will prayerfully consider this opportunity to serve as a volunteer! We are excited to announce that we will have FIVE camp weeks this summer and are looking for around 500-550 volunteers total!!!

 Application Process
Again this year we have all the information on YoungLives Childcare Opportunities and the application process online!  We strive to make the process as easy as possible for you! Just click on the link above to go to the page! Look around to find all the information and forms you need.

We know! We are asking for you to give a week of your time AND pay for it?!   The answer is "Yes." In order for us to have camp weeks available for teen moms and their children we have to cover the cost of food and housing for everyone attending. You are essential to this week happening, and we greatly appreciate your willingness to serve. Visit our Childcare Fee and Fundraising page if you have more questions about the cost or would like information and resources for fundraising.
If you are interested in sharing the YoungLives Childcare opportunity with friends, church members or others, we have  Childcare Recruitment Flyers available for you to use.  Check it out!

Don't Think You Can Make It This Year???
If you can't make it to camp this year, we are always need help in other ways (baby gear donations, spa day supplies and volunteers or camp scholarships). Please visit YoungLives Camp-Other Ways to Help.

  1. Hey Taylor. When you first posted about young lives a few months back I sent you an email (or FB message). Did you get it?

  2. Yes! I can't wait. I want to go this year if I am not taking my own kids to summer camp :-)
