Summer Staff: Come work on an island

Campus by the Sea is looking for individuals who will help us serve our guests while living in Christian community. We are seeking young adults (18+) to serve on our summer Kitchen, Facilities, and Program from the end of May to the beginning of August.

Campus by the Sea offers competitive pay, Christian community, and a chance to unplug from the stress of the world. The summer crew live as a community in tent cabins at Little Gallagher’s Cove, adjacent to our main camp, and are trained in job skills and teamwork. Activities for crew during the summer include worship gatherings, waterfront activities, BBQ and beach games, video nights and other celebration events. Crew spend time in small group Bible Studies and enjoy morning devotions with their teams.

- Handle light facility maintenance such as daily cleaning of the bath pavilion, cabin cleaning and trash collection.

- Help unload groceries and supplies from camp boats.

- Ensure the safety of the campers on the beach and in the boats.

- Must be willing to train for first aid, CPR and life-guarding certificates.

Serving on the Grounds/Waterfront crew requires a willingness to work hard and serve with a good attitude.

-Serve on Como camp staff by being a Dean for at least 2 sessions in a row (Deans must have 1 year of college complete)

-Leaders of games and helping the students participate in all areas of the program.

Serving on program requires a willingness to be more engaged, enthusiastic, and to be a leader for the students and other participants of camp. This position will go in tandem with facilities crew, as this is not an all summer long position.

Why work at Campus By The Sea:

Living at Campus by the Sea (CBS) is a unique experience with opportunity for personal growth while enjoying the beauty and adventure of an island life. We are a retreat and training center on Santa Catalina Island. CBS is twenty-six miles off the coast from Los Angeles and three miles north of the town of Avalon. We are only accessible by boat and CBS provides guests the opportunity to step away from life's busyness and experience God's rest. Most of our employees live in shared housing separated by gender, with occasional opportunities for couple's housing. PLEASE NOTE: On some occasions only shared housing is available for a specific gender. As part of our commitment to living together here at CBS, we participate in regular activities together that are outside of normal work responsibilities. This includes daily devotions, weekly Bible studies, and a Sunday Worship service held during our summer season. Learn more here:
