Parents and friends of Camas Wyldlife,
I hope you had a lovely summer and the transition into fall has gone smoothly. I wanted to update you on some changes that are happening within our middle school ministry called Camas Wyldlife.
Unfortunately, we will need to take a break from Camas Wyldlife club this year as we do not have enough adult volunteer leaders to sustain a healthy club.
I have been a volunteer leader for Young life for 19 years. I have seen firsthand how sharing God’s love with a kid can change the trajectory of their whole life. I have seen year in and year out God redeem, restore, and give hope to teens through Young life. I believe so strongly in this ministry, so it breaks my heart to share this news.
What does this mean? Young Life is a relational ministry. It is based on the relationships that leaders have with teenagers. We need adult male and female leaders who are willing to walk in the lives of middle schoolers and build relationships with them. We do not have enough leaders to run Wyldlife.
What does this mean for my middle schooler? There will be no monthly Wyldlife clubs for Camas this year. This next summer we hope to offer Creekside Camp for those kids who are currently in 8th grade. This will be dependent on the number of leaders available, not just for camp, but for the duration of the year following camp.
What can I do to help? You can join us in PRAYING for our whole area. We need leaders who love Jesus and want to share this love with teens. We need leaders who are willing to sacrifice their time to step into the world of teens and care for them. If you or someone you know is interested, please email email@example.com.
When we are able to run a healthy Camas Wyldlife ministry we will start back up again. Meanwhile, there are a number of solid churches in our area that offer youth groups and other activities geared towards middle schoolers. Encourage your teen to try one out!
If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us.
