sport-1529264__340
It’s that time of year again!  Time for the Neotez Volleyball Tournament.  The tournament is a fun way for Neotez to raise money each year.  Our Youth groups (and now they have adult teams – parents see Steve Dolan if you’re interested) get together and play volleyball or just hang out!

We will leave right after classes on Sunday, September 10 and should be back no later than 6:15 PM (we are at the mercy of the games and organizers – we will send out a text if we are running late).

If volleyball is not your thing, that’s OK, bring some cards or games and hang out and cheer our teams on!

  • Date:  Sept 10, 2017
  • Who: 6th-12th grade
  • When:  We leave right after worship time or 11:30.  We will return before or by 6:15 PM
  • Cost:  $6 – we ask that everyone donate whether you play or not – the money goes to Camp Neotez.
  • Cost:  $ for cheap lunch and dinner at the tournament.  About $10 for food will fill you up for the day.
    • ALL PROCEEDS go to camp!
  • Sign up below BY SUNDAY  – whether you play or just come and cheer you need to sign up so we make sure to have enough transportation.
  • Bring
    • lawn chair
    • cards
    • sunscreen
    • tennis shoes
    • blanket or something to sit on
    • Money for Lunch ~ $5

Kerusso Experience

For the past couple of years Harding University has sponsored the Kerusso Experience at Camp Neotez.  Young men grades 9-12 are invited to come spend a week studying and learning to preach.

This year Kerusso will be June 4-11.  If you are interested in participating, please make sure you register by May 21.  CLICK HERE for more information and to register with Harding.  ALSO – make sure you let Mike know so we can raise funds for you to attend.

This is a great opportunity to develop leadership and learn a skill that you can use to God’s glory even if you aren’t planning to go into full-time ministry.

Neotez Camp Staff Info

copy-headerStaff training has changed this year.  Each director will have their own training sometime before their camp week (Saturday Night or Sunday).  You still need to register for directors to know that you want to work their week.  You can CLICK HERE for information on registering as a counselor (you will still need to watch a Safety Presentation and fill out a Counselor Medical Release Form).  Make sure you do this quickly if you want to counsel or serve on U-crew this summer as directors are already choosing staff.
