Camp Tekoa's mission is, "Touching Hearts, Changing Lives, Sharing the Light of Christ." Volunteers help us to share our mission every day. Whether it is by assisting a camper with special needs or by clearing brush from a trail, Camp Tekoa relies on the help of our volunteers to make a difference in the lives of thousands of visitors every year.

You can volunteer individually or as a group. All volunteers who work while campers are attending camp must be at least 18 years old, fill out a Volunteer Application, and complete a criminal background check.

Here are a few areas where we can use your help:

Be a Special Friend
Summer Barnabas Camp -July 1-7, 2012 (Residential)
Fall UMAR Barnabas Camp - September 9-12, 2012 (Residential)
Special Needs Day Camp - June 25-29 & July 9-13, 2012 (Daily 8:30-4:30)

This is a great opportunity to provide a helping hand during an awesome week of camp! Volunteers are assigned a camper with developmental disabilities with whom they share in all the activities of camp. Just as their name suggests, Special Friends are week-long companions who provide care and encouragement while expressing Christian love. Campers enjoy activities such as boating, hiking, zipline, arts & crafts, devotions, talent show performances and much more. If you are interested in serving as a special friend at Tekoa please fill out the Volunteer Application . For additional information contact John Isley 828-692-6516.

Volunteer as a Nurse for the week

Each week of the summer, Tekoa relies on a volunteer RN to help care for our campers. This volunteer opportunity is available for one week at a time or multiple weeks. For additional information contact James Johnson 828-692-6516.
