The Shrine Mont Camps staff is commissioned and ready to start forming young lives.
Each year camp begins with staff training week. Counselors learn how to best support and care for campers, play together, and begin to build the community that makes camp, well, camp.
Below are pictures of the staff on a "walk and talk." Counselors trekked across the campus, stopping at various places along the way to discuss details about the camp experience.
Before the rest of the staff got on the mountain, the directors had their own mini training session. Here they are before compline at the end of a long day.

Bishop Gulick commissioned the staff by renewing their baptismal covenant, calling them into new relationship with God as they "seek and serve Christ in all persons" and "strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being."
This summer they will, with God's help.
