What’s it like being on Staff at Camp Saint Christopher?
2021 STAFF, INTERN, AND COUNSELOR APPLICATIONS ARE LIVE!
Staff are college-age young adults hired for the entire summer (May 24-August 8) 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 for a crazy summer spent serving, mentoring, and having fun with youth 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 2021. Interns serve for half of the summer (June 10-July 9 or July 11-August 7). 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 potentially join our Summer Staff team in the future. While there is no payment for this position, room & board, including all meals, is provided.
