Whitehall Camp & Conference Center
Summer Missions Team Technology Policy
Dear Missions Team Member,
As you approach the time to join us on the team this summer we would like to take the opportunity to encourage you to prepare your self, mind and spirit for a summer of service. We want to encourage you to set some time aside in order to be quiet before God and listen for what He has for you during this summer of service. This could be a couple of hours one day, a time once a week or just a few minutes each day. We want you to reflect on what it will mean for you to come and give of your summer to the Lord in ministry here at Whitehall Camp and Conference Center.
As you know, it is a sacrifice of your time, energy, and talents. There are many things that you will be giving up this summer, some of which could be a chance to continue your education, take a resume improving job, or do something you have always wanted to do. Giving up these things is a great sacrifice and honor to the Lord and He WILL bless that sacrifice. In giving up things for the Lord, we allow Him the opportunity to work in our lives and let Him speak to us in ways we may not otherwise hear.
In light of this we would ask that, as you consider what to bring to camp this summer, give some thought to giving up technological items for the summer such as a laptop ,iPod, video games, cell phone and other items. This will help facilitate your devoted service for the summer by minimizing distractions to the task at hand.
If you choose to bring such items to camp, we want you to know you will be allowed to use them ONLY at certain times and in certain locations. These specific times will be after 9 PM until lights out and during your days off. The specific locations will be in the staff quarters and in the staff lounge areas.
We are not by any means requiring you to leave these conveniences behind, but encouraging you to exercise a time of fasting in order to be more fully devoted in your time of service to the Lord at Whitehall this summer.

I have read, understand and commit agree to following the policies listed above while I am a Summer Missions Team Member.
