Join the Summer Camp Team for 2017!
Staff members are college age students and are hired for the entire summer (May 15-August 5) to build with relationships with campers and facilitate camp programming. Staff members live in cabins for the majority of the summer and run all camp activities and some of the teaching programs. If you are ready to spend your summer wet, muddy, and messy all while praising the Lord, this is the place for you!
Counselors are high school students who volunteer for one or more weeks over the course of the summer. Counselors stay in the cabins with a group of campers and assist their “in cabin” staff member with daily responsibilities. Counselors play a key role in building relationships with campers and being a spiritual leader.
Internships are offered on a limited basis to those who will have graduated high school in or before the spring of 2017. Interns serve for half of the summer (May 30-July 1 or July 2-August 4). This position involves less hands on ministry than a staff member, but more responsibility than a counselor. Interns are a vital part of our team. This position provides the ability to learn new skills and grow as a Christian leader, which will better prepare you to later join our summer staff. While there is no payment for this position, room and board, including all meals, is provided.
Age Requirements: Camp staff members need to be at least 19 years old on or before June 1, 2017, and have graduated High School in 2016 or earlier. Counselors need to be at least 16 years old on or before June 1, 2017. Interns need to have graduated high school by the summer of 2017.
Training Requirements: Staff need to be able to report to staff training on Monday afternoon, May 15th, already having their Lifeguard and First Aid certifications completed. Counselors need to be able to attend one of the required counselor overnight training sessions (March 3-4 or April 7-8, 2017). All counselors must attend one of these trainings in order to be eligible to be a counselor this summer.
