Project Type:  
SharonWoods Kids Summer Program: Counselors/Leaders

Length of Assignment:  1 week - Summer 2020

Sharon Woods Church in Columbus, OH is looking for high school and middle school ministry groups to serve as counselors/leaders at their 2020 children’s summer program. 

This is an opportunity for high school and middle school student ministry groups to make a significant spiritual impact while serving as a counselor and mentor in a week-long Kids Summer Program (1st-6th grade) filled with sports, activities, games, Bible studies and lots of field trips.  Students will have the opportunity to step outside of the familiar and be immersed into an urban/multicultural setting where they will be paired with kids from diverse backgrounds.   Many of the children in their program come from blended families, foster homes, and single parent households.  The program is all about relationships and getting to know and minister to the kids on a personal level.    The main goal is to make a difference in the lives of children and their families by sharing the Gospel with words and actions. 

Choose an available week from our 8-week SharonWoods Kids Summer Program listed below for your group to serve as volunteer counselors and leaders.  Groups arrive the Sunday evening prior to the start of the SharonWoods Kids Summer Program for a meal and program orientation.  Groups usually leave the following Friday evening or Saturday morning.  Many groups conclude their week with a visit on Saturday to one of Ohio's popular attractions like Kings Island, Cedar Point, or the Columbus Zoo.
