Miss Maggie (Maggie D. Harris) operates
Community Lutheran Ministry on Joseph Avenue in the city of Rochester.
Her year-round ministry is solely focused on the children of the 14621
zipcode, currently one of the most impoverished and crime-ridden areas of our
city. Every summer Miss Maggie runs a state accredited six-week camp for
up to 150 children ages 3 to 17. For more information about Miss Maggie’s
ministry, you can visit http://communitylutheranministry.org/about-us/.
For the last six years, local Victor and
Farmington churches have come together to sponsor the campers in our community
for a full week, and have created a program that is guided by Christian values and teachings.
This year the Victor camp is being held July 14 – 18. The children will
be provided with two healthy snacks and a hot meal everyday. On Monday and Friday, the children start the day at Willowbrook Christian Church on High Street. Monday afternoon will be spent at Kreag Road Park in Perinton. Tuesday and Wednesday will be spent all day at Onanda Park in Canandaigua, and Thursday will be at the Geneva Spray Park. Last year over 20 Victor students worked at the camp.
2014 Participating Churches include:
United Methodist Church
St. Patrick’s Catholic Church
First Presbyterian Church of Victor
Whitestone Christian Church
Willowbrook Christian Church
St. John’s Lutheran Church
Victor Community Church
Victor United Methodist Church
Volunteers are needed to be matched up to a small group of children, and engage in the pre-planned activities alongside them. Volunteers are encouraged to share their love of the Lord with the children, and help them to feel loved and valued.
Number of Volunteers Needed:
As many as possible. Adults as well as teens are encouraged to participate.
Camp Coordinator, Victor
Victor students have been great supporters of this camp in previous years. This is a great opportunity for groups of students (teams, clubs) to get in community service hours over the summer.
Transportation can be arranged for volunteers to the different sites during the week.
Volunteers should be 12+ unless they are working alongside a parent.
