Work Camping Church Camping

We're planning on hitting the road "most time" as soon as our farm is paid off. I see a few things for work camping & that would really interest me, I'm fairly capable etc, but what most calls my name is being a camp chaplain. . . anyone know of any resources to point a fella in that direction?

Thanks!

In HIS Service,

Tim

I don’t know the answer to your question but it would be nice if places held service on site. When my family arrives at a campground, my wife and I always look or ask for a nearby church. Good luck and God bless.

Church Camping

We have found as a rule, that these kinds of outfits are few and far between. As a real quick outline, here are a few places you could check, the Red Cross has accepted that disaster clients may be in need of spiritual help. Perhaps look into doing disaster work with them. The Escapees RV Club has a chapter called "Doves" that is recognized at the national level of the Red Cross. I think some churches have disaster relief teams, maybe could work with them?

To the op, I have sent you a p.m. Get in touch and we can discuss this on more detail.

If you’re on Facebook or Instagram, friends of ours are “Light Our Path” and volunteer often with Good Samaritan. They’ve been coast to coast doing disaster recovery with their 2 kids.

Otherwise, it’s not so much church related but look at WWOOF. Might be a little too much like the farming you are getting away from, though.

Tim, it sounds to me you want to be the spiritual equivalent of a campground host, right?

Ok, not Good Samaritan- Samaritan's Purse.

Here's an article my friends put together on finding ways to serve:

It might sound like that, yes. I like to interact with people & perhaps doing check in & campground chores would be a good way.

2 sites I've looked at, but haven't decided on what I want to do yet are, Volunteer.gov or workatkoa.com, each site invite workers of any skills and offering of many kinds for short and long term. I'm sure there are many more sites if you know what to search for, good hunting.
