Camp Bethel Summer Staff & CIT/Volunteer Recommendation Form
Thank you for your cooperation in this recommendation process. The applicant has applied to work/volunteer on a camp staff for up to eight weeks this summer with children and youth in the summer camp ministry of the Virlina District of the Church of the Brethren. We anticipate over 1000 children and youth will participate in our small-group residential and adventure camping programs that will be offered on our 470 acre facility in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Our activities are focused in the outdoors, and we depend upon mature, rugged, fun and high-initiative counselors and staff/volunteers to creatively engage the campers in experiential Christian education in our natural setting, all while keeping the campers safe: physically, emotionally and psychologically. Your honest perceptions of the applicant will assist in our evaluation, hiring and training of prospective staff members. Please list your phone number and e-mail address so that we may clarify or expand on your responses if necessary. Thank you!
