Here is a GoogleDoc to sign up for setup and cleanup. We need a minimum of 20-25 guys at each shift. There are also some supplies needed that we have to provide (brooms, dish towels, etc.) and you can sign up to bring some of those as well. Every guy should sign up for either a set up or clean up shift, it is not required but I will slap you silly if I find out you didn’t sign up for one (out of love of course <3).

Tshirts and headbands are also for sale to raise money for their philanthropy. There will be a silent auction held in the Theta House during the 5K (Johnny Manziel autographed football and a golden retriever puppy are the big ticket items).
John Knox Ranch Summer Camp: is a Christian summer camp outside of Wimberley TX. They are currently looking for male college students to fill counselor and upper leadership positions. John Knox Ranch Summer Camp Counselors live with 5 to 9 campers and act as friend, parent, mentor and disciplinarian to the campers. They also lead activities. 1 to 2 weeks out of the summer, a counselor may be put in a support staff role. As support staff, an individual can expect to lifeguard, help in the kitchen, and do light maintenance. In all areas, counselors help foster a climate of spiritual growth. Counselors are paired with a different co-counselor each week when a new group of campers come. The ages of campers range from 3rd-9th grade and counselors usually get a new age group each week. Counselors spend the day leading activities like canoeing, fishing, archery, sports and games, nature hikes, and swimming. Check out their website for more information if interested.

For each volunteer, we will need them to fill out an application and agreement and have those turned in before you do the project. We also need at least one girl to go with this, so missions grab-a-date style but not really (that’s not ever a thing). We need at least 10 guys. We will meet on-campus at 9am and carpool over to the house. Sign up at the link emailed out.
