Clearwater Summer Staff Team
We are looking forward to serving you soon!
- PRAY! Pray for our staff, the summer programs, our retreat guests, our ministry partners, and the Clearwater Forest Board of Directors.
- Be part of our work days/work groups (May 14 and Sept 17). New this year – work from your home / church and build benches, picnic tables, swings, and more.
- Give to our annual fund. It takes a lot of resources to manage the 1,016 acres of property, the 40 plus buildings, hire the summer staff, and to pay the utilities!
- Give to our scholarship fund. We were blessed with generous gifts last year that allowed us to give over $11,000 in scholarship funds. We simply do not turn away campers for financial reasons!
- Sponsor a summer staff counselor kit. Create a direct link between yourself and a staff member who is spending their summer changing lives – both the campers and themselves.
- Support our facility / wish list with an outright gift or if you have a gently used item that fits our needs, we will be happy to accept it.
- Be part of Clearwater’s long-term vision/mission by joining the Eagle Society. These amazing individuals have recognized how important Clearwater Forest has been in their life and have included our ministry in their estate planning.
- Consider an IRA Rollover Gift. If you are over 72-1/2, you are now able to make a charitable contribution up to $100,000 from your required disbursement with significant tax savings.
Our ministry relies on faithful people who recognize the vital ministry that Clearwater Forest plays in our campers, summer staff, and retreat groups lives. We invite you to partner with us in some fashion as we truly allow people the opportunity to grow in God’s woods and waters.
Clearwater Forest remains a sacred space for so many people. Your support is truly what makes this place so special! If you have any questions, or would like to schedule a visit, please feel free to contact me. I am looking forward to seeing where God leads us this year!
