Why work at Camp Cedarbrook in the Adirondacks:

Our staff are people who love God, love camp, and love teaching campers. Our staff forms a strong, committed team with a single focus: a safe summer filled with learning, fun, and spiritual growth. “I’ve been thinking a lot about how camp is such an amazing experience. Like, I’ve learned more about myself and my faith than I ever could have imagined. I’ve interacted with girls on such a deep level and had the opportunity, not only to help them grow, but share in this growth. Sometimes I just think how cool that is, and I get so excited!! I get to share in so many campers’ spiritual growth, and that personal interaction really can’t be achieved anywhere else. I don’t know if that makes sense? I just have appreciated this experience so much.” -Kayla Kroning, Cedarbrook Staff Member
