Volunteers, Summer Camps, Scholarships!

Camp Mennoscah Announcements

February 13, 2024

The Retreat Center is an important part of Camp Mennoscah's mission to create a sacred space for relationships in God's creation.  The building is used by church groups, families, and kitchen staff, as well as outside groups seeking a peaceful place in nature. Two volunteers are needed every week day (M-F) to continue the work on the Retreat Center project.  

Contractors depend on volunteer work being completed before they arrive.  Please seriously consider volunteering so this building where the camp community gathers is available by June.  Work will start at 9am and end at 5pm.  Half days are fine.  Bring your own lunch and water bottle, please, and meet at the Retreat Center.   Park off the edge of the road to the west of the building.  Camp Mennoscah will provide tools needed.  Space heaters will be used, but temperatures inside may be around 50 degrees.  

Camp can provide overnight housing and a kitchen in most situations, if you want to volunteer more than one day.  We will work with you to find you a comfortable place to stay.

Please let us know you are coming so we can be prepared.  Contact us at 620-297-3290, 316-293-7313 (text) or olivia.bartel@campmennoscah.org.  We are grateful for your generosity as a volunteer.  Thank you for helping make the Retreat Center project a reality!

Other events and happenings:

  • The Summer Staff application form will be closing February 15.  Those interested in applying should submit their application now. Only hours remain. The application for 2024 Summer Staff at Camp Mennoscah can be found here.
  • Registration for 2024 Summer Youth Camps is open!  Staff is still adjusting to the big Retreat Center project and some details are sure to have been missed--but that will not stop you from registering for a great week of camp.  The theme for the summer is Linked By Love and looks at the many ways we experience God's love through relationships.  Register online! 
  • Scholarship funds are needed for summer youth camps.  Just as facilities are an important part of Camp Mennoscah's ministry, so are campers.  There are campers who are unable to come to camp without assistance.  Give to the Scholarship Fund or Scholarship Endowment to help more campers learn about Christ while in God's creation.  Mark your donation with the fund/endowment you prefer.  The Scholarship Endowment will give up to two full scholarships a year, depending on earnings.  Contact olivia.bartel@campmennoscah.org or 620-297-3290 for more information.
  • Summer Youth Camps take many hands to make them run.  Nurses, head cooks, kitchen staff and maintenance volunteers are needed for every week of camp.  The summer camps range from 3 to 6 days and begin June 9.  Contact us at 620-297-3290 or olivia.bartel@campmennoscah.org if you are interested.
