I had already posted my own video of the Mountain T.O.P. Adults In Ministry (AIM) weekend from earlier this month, but this is even better — a video of the slide show which the camp community enjoyed Saturday night of that weekend. It’s better because it includes all three work sites, not just the one at which I fumbled around.
This week at work, I turned in vacation requests for two AIM weeks next summer, the first time I’ll have done that since at least 2003. I want to do both Kaleidoscope (an arts program for special-needs kids) and Summer Plus (enrichment workshops for teens from the mountains). I teach creative writing at Summer Plus; that’s how I first got involved in AIM, and thus in Mountain T.O.P.
Would you like to join me? At the June 12-18 week, you have your choice of working in home repair or Kaleidoscope. At the June 26-July 2 week, you have the choice of working in home repair or Summer Plus. There’s a third week, July 10-16, at which you would have the choice of home repair or Quest, an adventure program for teens from the mountains. There will also be a weekend event, July 21-24, at which only home repair will be offered. All four events will be at Mountain T.O.P.’s base camp, Cumberland Pines, near Altamont, Tenn.
