Rachel Byrnes

 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 am on senior staff at the pool and helping with nursing.  I am most excited to get to combine my love for camp and my love for nursing.  I can't wait to share God's love through caring for those sick and injured campers.  I'm also excited to have a chance to be a leader in a way I haven't previously experienced.  Also, I'm excited for churros.


How have you seen God at work so far this summer?  I have seen miracles happen, children grow, and adults act like kids.  I can feel myself growing in leadership, communication, and faith daily.

How has this summer experience impacted your life? It has made me a better leader and realy helped me grow in my faith.

To provide Rachel 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
