Carrollton Camp is a ministry of St. Charles Ave Presbyterian Church that provides a safe, nurturing, enriching environment for the children, ages 6 to 12, of Carrollton and surrounding neighborhoods. This two-week day camp includes activities such as art, cooking, STEM, reading, exercise, many New Orleans-themed guest speakers and local field trips. We need your help to make it happen.
PROVIDE BREAKFAST OR LUNCH for 40 campers on one of the 10 days of camp. Some favorite breakfast foods include: fruit, cereal and milk, muffins, breakfast sandwiches, pancakes, sausage, and eggs. For lunches, sandwiches, pizza, or hot dishes are all welcome, along with fruit or salad sides.
Breakfast should arrive between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m. Lunch should arrive by 11:30 a.m., except on Thursdays when lunch should arrive by 8:00 a.m. The contact person for all meals is Allegra, 505-910-9919.
Please note that meals must be completely prepared and ready to serve when you bring them to camp. Pepperoni's Cafe is familiar with our camp and they are a great place to call if you'd like to have your breakfast or lunch catered - 504-913-6329.
SERVE AS A SHEPHERD one or more days in which you will guide a group of 8-10 kids to their daily activities. Shepherds are needed each day from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
BE A STORY TIME READER: Every morning (9:00 a.m.) we'll begin our day with books that inspire, encourage, and teach us lessons about being a kind and good friend to others. Share your favorite children's book, or if you'd like to read a book but need a suggestion, we can help find the perfect book for you! When you sign up please let us know which book you'll be sharing (or if you'd like help selecting a title).
HELP WITH SET-UP OR CLEAN-UP
On Sunday, July 16 from 1-3 p.m. we need volunteers to bring supplies and help set up camp; and on Sunday, July 30 from 1-3 p.m. we need volunteers to break down materials. Trucks and SUVs are especially welcome but cars aren't necessary to help out- we need all the hands!
