Rotary Clubs from around Alaska are hosting a leadership conference for teens at Solid Rock Bible Camp this weekend. Marcus Mueller, President of the Soldotna Rotary Club, said the camp benefits from having older students involved in teaching younger students.
Mueller: “The teens that design the program are bringing subject matter that they think is most relevant to their peers, and these happen to be issues including: bullying and suicide prevention. Some really hard-hitting issues.”
Teens are arriving this afternoon and the camp will continue through Sunday. Mueller said they’d spend most of Saturday volunteering with local service providers like the Food Bank, Leeshore Center, and Watershed Forum, but for now…
Mueller: “Very few of them know each other. Like I said they’re from all around the state, as well as the Yukon, so the first thing we have to do is get to know each other, and then build off of those relationships that come together.”
The theme of this year’s camp is Peace Through Service.
