All God’s Children Camp and Camp Rainbow Connection are long-lasting ministries of the Virginia Conference. With the support of churches, both camps provide a life-changing experience for the campers who are served. Both camps have a unique structure to provide mentorship for the camper who needs to experience the love of God. The camps need your help to be part of the team to share the love of Christ with all people!
2022 Camp Rainbow Connection
Date: July 16 – 22, 2022
Where: Richard Bland College
Camp Rainbow Connection needs volunteer staff members! Camp is held at Richard Bland College in Petersburg. Campers and staff live in suite-style dorm rooms. Each staff member is paired with a camper buddy who they support while maintaining dignity of the camper with whom they are buddied. Staff members live alongside campers for the week while also supporting and facilitating the camp activities including, but not limited to, morning classes (Bible, art, science and music), afternoon activities (games and mission projects), and evening activities (talent show, dance, luau, etc.). Serving at CRC requires a servant’s heart, an ability to facilitate camp activities that provide campers opportunities to experience fun, fellowship and Christian teaching, and a desire to demonstrate Christian love with compassion and acceptance towards our CRC community. Many who volunteer say that CRC is as close to heaven they’ll get while on earth. Volunteering is a great opportunity to serve and it almost always provides a new demonstration of Christ’s love for all people. CRC is best suited for folks who are willing to work together as a team with people with and without disabilities.
