Intergenerational Camp and Conference Ministry: When, Where, Who, What, and How

11:30am-12:15pm EDT on Thursday, November 19

Dovetailing from Thursday's keynote presentation, Melissa Cooper will explore the “nuts and bolts” of making your camp and conference ministry more effectively intergenerational. Drawn from hands-on experiences and actual camping ministry, Cooper will help connect the dots between the theory of intergenerationality and it’s practice in your ministry context.

She is also an Associate with Vibrant Faith, providing coaching and consulting services to help support congregations in leadership development and intergenerational ministry. Melissa once served as the Faith Formation and Retreat Ministries Coordinator for Camp Don Lee and as Program Coordinator for the Life Enrichment Center and Warren Willis Camp. Melissa is married to Will, and they are the parents to the cutest poodle and sassiest cats you’ll ever meet. When there's not a global pandemic, you can often find them frolicking around Disney World.
