When is the Shepherding Sheep servant event?

Shepherding Sheep takes place the week of Memorial Day and is divided into two sessions. The first session begins Sunday afternoon and runs through Wednesday morning. The second session begins on Wednesday afternoon and runs through Saturday morning.

When is training?

Training for servant event volunteers begins at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday or Wednesday (depending on the volunteer’s day of arrival). Campers do not arrive until 3:00 p.m. on the corresponding start date. Applicants must attend training in order to serve for either session. Note: Shepherding Sheep volunteer training IS NOT the same as junior counselor training.
