S.W.A.T. stands for “servants with a task” and is an extension of the main English Camp program for youth (age 16-18). S.W.A.T. teams are a big help at camp. Serving on S.W.A.T. is a great opportunity for you to discover your unique gifts and to practice using them. Part of the S.W.A.T. experience involves sleeping in tents. A S.W.A.T. captain is in charge of leading the team. Each S.W.A.T. team serves for 6 days during an English Camp session.
Cleaning house, doing dishes, setting up for chapel, games, crafts, etc…, helping on the music team, painting and house repairs, yard work, maintenance on the low ropes course, assisting in the kitchen, and much more!
Since the beginning of our English Camps in Austria (1993), we have worked closely with Camp Shamineau in Motley, Minnesota, USA. For over 20 years many Austrian youth have visited Camp Shamineau and helped as SMT (Summer Mission Team).
SMT are involved in a week of staff training and a minimum of five additional weeks serving at Camp Shamineau.
The Summer Missions Team consists of select students (age 15 and up) who are involved in training that prepares them for specific counseling and teaching opportunities with summer campers.
SMTs are encouraged to develop their personal walk with Christ and try new leadership challenges. This is accomplished through training activities, junior counseling experiences, assisting in teaching skills classes, leading cabin devotions as well as time spent working on support crews.
