Dogwood Youth Conference (DYC), our annual Middle School and High School conference is going to be March 6th-8th. We are excited to partner with UKirk Tallahassee in leading this time of fellowship and recreation.
This year Dogwood is moving to an online registration system for DYC. The registration form can be found under the DYC page on the Dogwood Acres website. If you have any questions about the new registration or are a DYC first timer feel free to contact Emma Hodges the Program Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that all youth advisors and chaperones need to register as well.
We are incredibly grateful!
We have completed all aspects of the recovery to our buildings and campus area. We still have a ways to go to finish beautifying our trail system, painting the chapel and two other buildings, and doing general maintenance around the camp.
If you have a love for Dogwood Acres and would like to help, we would be very appreciative. Your on-the-ground support is very, very encouraging to the Staff and DWA Ministry Team!
James Vance will be coordinating the volunteer efforts. Please email him at email@example.com or call him at 850-933-3985 to inquire about work days or to offer your services.
COVID-19 update: (3/27/20) We take the safety, health, and well being of all our volunteers and guests very seriously. We have reduced the number of people and hours on the ground at Dogwood Acres this month, and look forward to larger groups coming back when the pandemic is no longer an issue. In the meantime, if you would like to get some fresh air and enjoy some safe projects, please consider joining us, one or two at a time, as we work on our trails and painting projects.
Thanks for your interest and support – we look forward to seeing you at Dogwood soon!
In more "normal" times: There are many ways that you can help our presbytery’s Outdoors Ministry, and every few months between Sepetmber and May, we set aside a Saturday for folks who enjoy getting out into nature and helping with hands-on projects. These events are planned for individuals and/or small groups. Activities will range from trail blazing to painting, to carpentry projects, landscaping and gardening, and general maintenance. Whether you have a teen that needs to put in volunteer hours, a Sunday school class that loves to get out and do things together, or you are an individual that just wants to support our ministry, please consider signing up for a day at Dogwood Acres.
James Vance, our Property Ministry Team coordinator, and others from our DWA Ministry Team will supervise. Please email James at firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know the kinds of things you feel comfortable helping with. He keeps a list of a variety of projects and can also customize a day’s work to fit your abilities.
