Drop-In Summer Program: A New Possibility in 2023

December 2022

Step One: Staff recruitment

We are opening our doors for the 2023 Summer Program, which runs from July 6 to August 11, 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM, at Bethel Lutheran Church, 5658 N. Denver Ave., Portland, OR 97217.

Program overview:  Bethel Lutheran Neighborhood Youth Drop In Center is restarting its summer day camp for elementary school students in North/Northeast Portland OR. After a COVID-forced suspension we are back for 2023 — our 27th season. The Center is a partnership between Bethel Lutheran Congregation and neighborhood families, offering a safe space for children to learn, play, make friends and have adventures in the community. While housed at a church, the program is secular, offers no religious instruction, and welcomes children of all backgrounds.

In order to get this program up and running we need you! Please consider applying as Director or as Support Staff. Take a look at our ad on craigslist (click here), read our Job description and then apply using our Job application form. See the expanded schedule dates here, including staff training and post program clean up and reflection. Contact the Center at ydic@bethelpdx.org for further information or answers to your burning questions.

We are looking forward to meeting you!

Step Two: Family recruitment

Details coming in January 2023!
