Host a Camp

How to Get Started

Host a Camp

All children can benefit from resiliency and preparedness skills taught at Camp Noah, and all communities can benefit from hosting a camp. 

Hosting a camp is an amazing opportunity for any community. Each Camp Noah event happens through the collaboration of many partners. If you are a parent looking for opportunities to help your child after a disaster, a church or community member that longs to bring hope and healing to your neighborhood after a traumatic event, or an organization seeking to provide spiritual and emotional care for a community in crisis, a Camp Noah Program Manager is available to start a conversation about your unique needs and answer your initial questions. 

How to Get Started--Contact Camp Noah

Because of the unique collaboration method of camp/event planning, you are encouraged to contact Camp Noah early and often. There are some key components necessary to host a Camp Noah event: 

  • Children to participate!
  • Possible partners in your community or area
  • A child-friendly facility large enough to accommodate campers, camp staff and volunteers
  • Potential dates for the camp
  • Funding or ideas of possible funding sources
  • A local group, agency or organization that would be willing to serve as the Coordinating Organization. A Coordinating Organization commits to bringing Camp Noah to the community, and signs an agreement with Camp Noah—LSSMN.
  • Ideas for a Site Coordinator to oversee the event locally, recruit campers, and manage logistics
  • A Camp Noah Program Manager will work with you to identify these components and provide direction and support as you move into the next stages of camp development.

The fact that [Camp Noah] brought a whole lot of partners together to work on something also increases resiliency. It says you can partner and work together even if you don't all have the same beliefs and you don't all agree all the time. In this type of situation, you can come together and work together and make something great happen. –Community stakeholder
