Camp Arcadia has a variety of opportunities to serve God by serving others. There are four categories of staff: full season, summer, fall and teen retreat. Positions are available in the areas of kitchen, housekeeping, program, caretaking/facilities, office, archives and media (photo and video production). All of our staff are housed and provided meals on-site at Camp Arcadia. Our staff are also paid, but you may also consider supporting Camp’s mission even further by applying as a volunteer. The application process is the same as paid and volunteer staff. The online staff application will be available on December 1st 2020. We are currently still accepting applications! Come work, live, and play with us right on the shores of Lake Michigan!

FULL SEASON STAFF
Come and stay the full season (end of May – end of October). These full season positions are great opportunities to gain leadership experience and make great internships for students enrolled in programs in the following areas: culinary arts, business, youth ministry, hospitality, recreation, and facility management. The application priority date is January 31, but applications may still be submitted after that date.
During the summer we have around 40 excellent college-age staff members who work from Memorial Day through mid-August. The application is available on December 1st. We are currently still accepting applications! Come work, live, and play with us right on the shores of Lake Michigan!
Once our college staff go back to school we welcome people from high school age to retirement age to join our Fall Staff (mid-August – end of October). Staff are welcome to come work a weekend or stay up to a few months. There is a bonus program for staff who can work at least four consecutive retreats. There is no priority deadline; positions will be filled on a first-come first-serve basis.
TEEN RETREAT STAFF
Camp Arcadia’s Teen Week staff consists of approximately 16 adults that serve for one of the two retreats – Alpha Teen Retreat (serving students going into 8th, 9th, or 10th grade) and Omega Teen Retreat (serving students going into 10th through recent highschool graduates). We have positions available as counselors and Camp Nurses. Counselors work with groups of 8 to 11 teens.
