Counselors

Counselors are a valuable and necessary part of camp. They are the people who have the most interaction with the childern and youth who come to camp. It is vital that counselors have a growing and consistent walk with the Lord. We would love for you to pray and consider this unique opportunity to serve the Lord at camp this summer.

6 Week Paid Counselor Position:

Every year, we need a minimum of four male and four female counselors to commit to serve for four to six weeks during the summer. This includes serving during the four weeks of children and youth camps and two weeks for training and help with camp preparations/Wilderness Camp. Meals and lodging are provided, and up to a $1,150.00 stipend is available.

If a counselor serves for six weeks, they will receive a bonus stipend of $250 at the end of the summer.

Can’t commit to 6 weeks?

 If you can only come for a week or two, we would still love for you to be a part of the camp. Counselors are highly encouraged to attend the training days in June. Specific trainings are required to be completed before the camp start date.
