As a ministry of PSSM (Puget Sound Strategic Ministries), Puget Sound Camp is a 501c3 non-profit. Therefore, your financial or gifts-in-kind are tax deductible! And while prayer is the most obvious and essential need for a vibrant and effective Puget Sound Camp, there are numerous also ways you can donate time, talents, or "treasures" camp! See the descriptions below and contact the camp director at email@example.com for more information.
We are always keeping an eye out for mature adult counselors (preferably, but not limited to current Awana leaders) to minister their time to the youth entrusted to us. We are most confident your service as a counselor will not only bless those entrusted to you at camp, but it will bless you too!
What are your talents (skills)? There are a variety of skills we can use in helping better promote and manage camp administration and operation, including nursing, web design and management, photo/video production, graphic design, and construction of stage props and game equipment. If you have any of these talents you can donate, let us know!!
What are "treasures"? They can be either financial gifts donations or gifts-in-kind (property). As a ministry of PSSM (Puget Sound Strategic Ministries), Puget Sound Camp is a 501c3 non-profit.
