CELEBRATING 60 YEARS!
Heartland Presbyterian Center is celebrating its 60th Anniversary throughout 2018. Our kick-off event, a gathering of Board members and staff, was held on January 14. We unveiled the anniversary logo, shared favorite stories, distributed limited-edition t-shirts and ate s'mores.
We invite you to join us in a variety of special events and activities this year, including Camp T-Shirt Day, a 6K Race, and our Celebration Weekend in August. The t-shirts are available for purchase through the Heartland Center office. Keep up on the news and our event calendar at our blog.
Be Part of a Great Adventure!
The success of Heartland Summer Camps depends on the generous sharing of time, energy and dedication by our staff and volunteers. You, or someone you know, may be uniquely suited to contribute to the life-changing experiences of the young people who come to camp.
Spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ is at the heart of the program. It utilizes fun, games and crazy songs along with Bible study and relationship-building to share the message of God's grace and love. Staff and volunteers are given in-depth training, day-to-day support and frequent feedback to ensure a meaningful experience for them as well as the campers.
Positions which are available for the summer of 2018 include overnight counselors, on-site day camp counselors, horse wranglers, lifeguards and craft leaders. If you feel the call to serve, or know of a young person in your life who would be willing to share their gifts and talents, please contact us. Information on opportunities to serve can be found on our Website.
