Service Team Overview
Service Team is a small group of high school students who will learn how to integrate their lives more fully into God's mission in the world. This program involves camp work projects, regular Bible study, leadership opportunities, intentional peer community, and deep mentoring relationships with our camp counselors. We offer a life changing summer so our students will be filled with passion for Jesus back home. New for this year, students will start an online discipleship process before camp begins that is guided by the program leaders. They will continue this process after camp is over. This program is one of HoneyRock’s premier camper summer leadership opportunities. It requires an application and has an interview process for all participants. There are only 12 spots available per gender.
Wilderness trips: Cabin groups participate in overnight trips to build community, teach skills and enjoy creation.
Instructional activity areas: Opportunity to complete intermediate and master achievements in evening activity
Service opportunities: Discipleship through service in our kitchen, trip locker, buildings and grounds crews, housekeeping and in the local community.
Spiritual focus: Daily morning studies, purposeful service projects, dedicated prayer times, evening discussions, and worship are geared to help service teamers apply their learning to their mission field back home. Students will receive study assignments before and after their summer.
Service Team requires a special application. Once you have registered for the program and have paid your deposit you will need to contact the Service Team Coordinator.
Sleeping Bag Purchase Program
This summer all participants in our high school programs are required to provide their own wilderness style sleeping bag. We are no longer supplying sleeping bags for participants out of our trip locker. We are offering participants the option to purchase a new Marmot sleeping bag for $75; this is $20 less than retail stores. We have chosen this bag because it is the ideal sleeping bag for use in all our high school programs. This fully synthetic, 30-degree rated sleeping bag is warm, versatile, durable and packs easily for use on wilderness trips and campouts. If you are interested in purchasing a sleeping bag please check the box on the registration form. Participants will receive their sleeping bag when they arrive at HoneyRock. Each bag will also have a HoneyRock nametag attached to the zipper pull so it can be easily identified.
2013 Dates: June 24 - August 12
Registration opens on November 15th, 2012
