Wildwood Prayer Team
We believe in the power of prayer and realize that it is an integral part of our ministry at camp, so this summer we are asking all staff members to find at least five people who would commit to pray daily for the staff and for Wildwood this summer. This allows us to experience the power of prayer first hand, as well as, getting others involved in the excitement of what God will do at camp this summer.

Please provide us with the names of three people that you know well and that they have agreed to act as your references. One reference should be a Christian worker (pastor, youth worker, etc.); one person should be a person outside of your church life as an employer, teacher, coach, etc; and one from anyone over the age of 21. Please do not use relatives.

Your references must fill out the Online Reference Form submitted to the camp before the deadline of Feb 20th, 2013.
