Use your skills and experience to give back to your outdoor ministry! Please share with us about your gifts, skills, experience, and interests. Anyone affiliated with Caroline Furnace is eligible to volunteer on a committee. Some committees require appointment by the Board of Directors due to access to confidential information. If you are interested in serving on the Board of Directors, your information will be shared with the nominating task force.

Talk to us about a camp week for your congregation!

A camp week can take on many different forms but basically serves as an opportunity for your congregation to grow in community together. Choose a week, share it with your congregation, send a chaplain and/or bring volunteers, and encourage parents to send their campers as a group. They'll likely be in different cabins or sukkahs and doing different activities, but they'll have an experience and memories to share with one another long after camp is over. New camper parents, especially those with young campers, feel encouraged by the presence of an adult their child already knows. 

If you'd like to learn more, give us a call at 540-449-0012.

Host a Camp Sunday or Family Night!

Share the excitement of Outdoor Ministry with your congregation. Get in touch with us and we'll join you for a Sunday, or we can share the resources you need so that you can incorporate camp fun into your day! We can lead or help plan Adult and Youth Sunday Schools, Children's Sermons, Camp Songs, Temple Talks, Narthex Displays, Receptions, or other activities that would best suit the needs of your congregation.

If you'd like to learn more, give us a call at 540-449-0012.
