     Greetings from Camp Perkins! We are on our way to an amazing summer adventure for 2017! And . . .we are still on the lookout for those epic counselors that make the summer amazing. You might be wondering why we are sending this to you... well, I thought we'd reach out to some of our past campers and see if there might be someone out there just waiting to be asked to be a part of the summer staff team! We don't have the direct emails to most of the campers, so we are sending this out to the email addresses of the addresses we have! Please help spread the word to those college aged kiddos you know might be just the right fit for a summer in the mountains sharing the Word! They can contact with questions or request an application at Thank you in advance for your help in spreading the word... and for entrusting us with your kiddos in the past! Grace and Peace, Signe White, Executive Director Camp Perkins P.S. Amazon Shopping? Bless Camp Perkins by shopping through AmazonSmile and Amazon will donate a portion to Camp Perkins!
