The Camp and Retreat Leader Network (CRLN) is one of the primary communication avenues for UM Camp and Retreat Leaders. This group of more than 1,000 staff and volunteers share beneficial information and mutual support on many topics: training opportunities, how camp and retreat ministry can collaborate with important denominational initiatives, job openings, new resources and much more.
A unique aspect of the CRLN is the opportunity to submit questions to colleagues specializing in this ministry across the denomination. The person who requests the information collates replies and shares them with the entire network of leaders. This practice has made it possible for exchange of information and ideas that has been an extremely rich resourcing avenue.
Leaders from other denominations have joined in along with the Religiously Affiliated Camps of the American Camp Association because of the value of belonging to this free e-mail. It is easy to participate.
Simply send a request to join to Kevin Witt – kwitt@UMCdiscipleship.org and he will add you to the network. Try it out! If, at any time, you no longer wish to participate just let us know and your email address will be removed. Most leaders continue their participation as long as they are in camp and retreat ministry because it is truly beneficial.
