Brethren Volunteer Service (BVS) is pleased to announce that we will be hosting an in-person summer orientation for Unit 329 at Inspiration Hills Camp in Burbank, Ohio, from July 18-Aug. 6. We are excited to be able to gather safely and in intentional community for the orientation experience once more!
This decision was carefully considered and researched in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Brethren Disaster Ministries, Children’s Disaster Services, and Faith Outreach Expeditions (FaithX).
We are also announcing the Fall Unit 330 orientation on Sept.19-Oct. 8 at Camp Brethren Heights in Michigan.
We are still accepting applications for the summer unit through June 4. Applications for the fall unit are due Aug. 6. Please consider sharing your gifts with BVS to serve a world in need.
— Pauline Liu is coordinator of volunteers and Kara Miller is orientation assistant for BVS.
