• That the Lord would bring together well-balanced teams keen to serve Him
• For the Team Leaders, as they organise their camps
• For the Team Members and Cooks as they prepare  
• That there would be enough volunteers to drive and chaperone campers  
• That the Lord will prepare the hearts of campers for the Gospel
• That Christian campers would be strengthened and encouraged in their walk with Him
