Buckner Family Hope Center is looking for volunteers to spend time with our Project Hope Families at day camp this summer. Volunteers will spend the day at Camp Gilmont in Gilmer, TX. This is a wonderful opportunity for family members of all ages to come and enjoy the outdoors. The volunteers will spend the morning helping with the children's program and the afternoon traveling with a group to the different activities. Our volunteers will get to enjoy the activities as well! What a fun summer day! All activities, games and crafts will be planned and lead by the camp staff. The volunteers are there for support and engaging with the families. If you are interested in spending time outdoors and investing the lives of others, this opportunity is great for you!

We have two dates available for volunteers, July 18 and August 19. We are asking for volunteers to be there by 8:00 am to start the day! Volunteers will need to provide their own transportation to Camp Gilmont. All meals will be provided for the day. Please contact Sarah Beasley at Buckner for more information (sbeasley@buckner.org) or 903.757.9383
