DLs will also be responsible for supporting each other through the wild ride that is SEP.
Dorm Chappies - Chappies are responsible for assisting with the teaching and spiritual wellbeing of the dorm. They lead the daily discussions and participate in follow-up discussion at the evening dorm meetings. Prayer for their DLs and campers is also a major focus of this role. Chappies are encouraged to spend as much time as they are able with the dorm, supporting the DLs and creating relationships with the campers.
