Summer Camp 2021

Counselor & Summer Staff

Are you interested in serving some incredible kids alongside a fantastic staff dedicated to exuding God’s love over the course of a summer? Well, Camp of the Hills could be just the place for you! 

Each summer, a dedicated team of young adults work together to help kids better understand how much God loves them. Counselors do this through outdoor activities (sports, swimming, ropes course, canoeing, and fishing), creative outlets (arts, crafts, music, dance, and a talent show), and faith connections (Bible studies, worship times, devotionals thoughts, a crucifixion/resurrection reenactment). All these activities and more help create opportunities for campers and counselors to build meaningful relationships, giving campers the chance to ask questions of / learn from positive role models and allowing counselors to use their own gifts while gaining an appreciation for the goodness and resilience of the campers.

While many camps cost between $800 – $2,000 per week, Camp of the Hills specializes in working with youth from low-income / at-risk communities. To ensure that the kids to whom we are called to serve can afford to attend, CotH only charges $60 per child for a week. This allows us to target kids who would not be able to experience a week in the outdoors otherwise and surround them with a diverse group of mentors that reflect their community.

If you’re interested in learning more about what it looks like to serve at Camp of the Hills, check out our YouTube page! A small group of counselors created some great content over Summer 2020 while campers couldn’t attend, and you can get a feel for who we are and what camp is like through some of those videos.

 The application for Summer 2021 is available now! We’re already excited about all the great folks we’re going to hire!

If you want to learn more about serving as a counselor at Camp of the Hills, get in touch with our Camp Director. You can call or text, Drew Bowen: (737) 251-3651  or by email at drew@campofthehills.org

Join us this summer!

Thank you for your interest in serving deserving children from low income communities at Camp of the Hills. Here, our summer staff truly acts as the hands and feet of Christ in our efforts to reveal His love to each camper. Our desire is to love God’s children by noticing and praising the godly attributes they possess and devoting our time and attention to encouraging them in every moment. Through sacrifice for the sake of the campers we hope to live out God’s command to carry each other’s burdens and build each other up. Camp of the Hills brings together a unique and diverse group of believers, all of whom are sacrificing their summers to unite for a common mission. The culture of this place builds community among the staff that will continue after the summer and beyond camp grounds. You will find being a part of what God is doing here a rewarding experience.

Drew Bowen

Program Director

Drew has a long history with Camp of the Hills, serving as a volunteer, Camp Assistant, Counselor, and Camp Director before being hired as Program Director. He and his wife, Amanda, fell in love at camp and their wedding was the first event in our new dining hall. Despite run-ins with errant rocks to the head and almost-dead rattlesnakes over the years, there’s nowhere on Earth that Drew feels more at home. His passion for recruiting new counselors and staff stems from a love of sharing what God is doing at camp, and imagining ways for others’ talents and passions to join in that good work.
