Camp Discovery Airport Volunteers Needed

 

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED for one of TLC Health Cabinet’s ministries….and it promises to be a fun and easy way to help make a difference in the life of a child.  

WHAT:  Camp Discovery (formerly Camp Dermadillo) is a one-week camp for children and teens aged 8-16 held at Camp For All in Burton, TX www.campforall.org and sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology www.campdiscovery.org and Texas Children’s Hospital. Since campers come from around the country, we need your help at the airport on the day the children arrive and the day they return home.

WHEN:  This year, the campers arrive on Sunday, August 6th and return home on Friday, August 11th.   Plan on dedicating approximately 2-3 hours anywhere between 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. on the day you volunteer with more specific times assigned once we get closer to the date.

WHERE:  Bush Intercontinental Airport 

HOW:  You will be assigned to help with one camper.  On Sunday, you will meet your camper at their arrival gate.  Once you collect their luggage, you will bring them to a dedicated conference room where they will be entertained by Camp staff until they head off to a fun week at camp.  On Friday, you will meet your camper at the conference room and then take them to get checked in and wait with them at their gate until their plane takes off.

WHY:  This is a fun and easy way to help make a difference in the life of a child!  Your airport parking will be free and some treats will also be provided!

If you are interested in being part of this life-changing ministry or have questions, please contact Alanna Bree at 832.331.8320 or at alannabree@sbcglobal.net.  

We will hold an informational meeting on Sunday, July 30th, at 10:30 a.m. in Room 124 for those interested to meet the Camp volunteer coordinators and to review the process of obtaining gate passes and other details.  This information will also be provided by email if you cannot attend the informational session.

“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35
