Maryam McDaniels

 You have a chance to be part of what I am confident will be a life-changing summer for me.  I have the privilege of being selected to serve on the summer staff at Lutheridge near Asheville, North Carolina.  My summer will be spent witnessing my faith to over 2,000 children and youth who come to camp to grow in their faith and have fun in a very special intentional Christian Community.

This summer I'll be a General Duty Area Director.  I am incredibly excited and ready for the summer to get started.  Coming back to Lutheridge this year was a complicated decision, but not a difficult decision.  Sometimes the outside world takes precedent, but this year I have decided to not let that happen.  I am also really stoked for this summer because I am starting in a whole new role.  Being on senior staff this summer is going to be so challenging and rewarding!  This summer is going to be so ausesomesauce, it just needs to start already!! :)


How has this summer experience impacted your life? I have become a much more effective leader, which my job completely encompasses. I know now I just need to find the path that might not be the clearest, but will definitely get me to where I need to go.

To provide Maryam with salary, room, board, and training, it costs over $2555 for the summer. We know this is worth it as it is the summer staff that have the greatest impact on the campers. We are inviting you to invest in their training. By investing in them, we will send you updates and post updates on this webpage about the ministry they are involved in and how it is impacting their life. Your investment in them frees other funds to provide scholarships and improve the program equipment and facilities.The cost of $2,555 breaks down as follows:

  • $555 provides for 1 counselor's training ($47,175 total cost)
  • $2000 provides for 1 counselor's salary
