Summer Camp 2022

Staff Overview

For each summer, we strive to hire a group of young adults that are passionate to discover and expand their leadership ability through ministry. Our vision for you as part of our summer staff is that you will be able to comprehend the deep love that God has for you. Despite the good works that He wants to do through you, He is far more interested in what He wants to do IN you. He is not calling out for the perfect but rather for those who have the willingness to go through the internal process that summer requires.This means that all you have, is all you need! 

Through this position, we offer a life changing experience to help find the path that God has for you in life. Over the course of a full summer, you will be met by many obstacles that will challenge you to develop and strengthen a more Christ-like character. Through becoming a part of Summer Staff, you have the opportunity to invest your ability to serve and pour out God’s love to a new set of campers every week. Your commitment would be to attend our full summer agenda, including our Training Week, which will give you the ability to prep and discover some of the ways you can succeed in your summer experience. 

There is both a spiritual and physical aspect to your responsibilities as staff members. Spiritually, you will learn how to connect with the campers through everyday activities that will help impact their perspective on obstacles they could face in life. Physically, you will be challenged by heat and endurance during the outdoor activities. We believe in the ministry that God has deposited in you and the truth that He speaks over your life. We hope that your interest guides you to apply, and gives us the opportunity to go more in depth into what your summer can look like!
