Summer Staff

Our intention each summer is that the life of every person who comes to camp is impacted for Christ, including those who are on staff.

- INTENTIONAL COMMUNITY AND DISCIPLESHIP: our hope is that each staff member steps into the temporary community of summer staff and leans into the support and accountability of peers.

- LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT: working at camp is not only real-life job experience but we recognize being on summer staff as an opportunity to develop leaders in all positions. Each staff will have the opportunity to be coached and mentored by their supervisor throughout the summer.

- MINISTRY EXPERIENCE: whether that be leading a Bible Study, washing dishes alongside a high school camper, organizing a group game, or having a one-on-one conversation with a camper about Jesus, everything we do is an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus!

- UNPLUGGED SETTING IN CREATION: you’ll spend every day in the outdoors without the normal life distractions allowing you to connect with God in new ways.
