Whenever I’m afraid, I put my trust in You. Psalm 56:3

Camp Firelight is the perfect location for every Camper’s favorite summer activities! During each assembly session, Campers join first-time camp counselor Sam and Lu (short for Lumen), the lightning bug puppet, and learn to face their fears while trusting in God. Each day, Campers see Counselor Sam face new challenges, from as simple as leading Campers on a hike to as intimidating as meeting a new and wise nature expert. With the help of Lu the Lightning Bug and the Camp Counselor Guidebook, Counselor Sam and our Campers explore timeless Bible stories that show how Old and New Testament Campers trusted God in the face of their own fears and went on to do great things in God’s name.

Through these stories, this program will teach us about people in the Bible who experienced the gift of a trusting relationship with God. In addition, it will teach us to trust that God will go with us, lead the way, share wisdom, to give us peace, and spark joy as we celebrate the good news of Jesus in our own lives and in the lives of others. We will also learn ways we can connect with and put our trust in God whenever we are afraid, challenged, or called to do God’s work in the world and share the Good News of God’s love through Jesus Christ.

Interested in volunteering?

Barefoot School would not be possible without our amazing team of volunteers! Youth and adults who are interested in volunteering can register beginning May 1, 2024.

Upon registering, you will be able to indicate what positions interest you the most, and we'll do our best to match you with that role. There's a place for everyone at Barefoot School!

Before Barefoot School, volunteers are asked to attend one of two training opportunities (June 9 or 12). Training is required for first-time and youth volunteers and highly encouraged for all others. All volunteers over the age of 18 are required to submit clearances in accordance with Westminster's Safe Church Policy and Pennsylvania State requirements.
