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, facilities caretaking, office, archives 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 staff. The on-line staff application will be available on December 1st 2019. Priority date for receiving applications is February 1, 2020. Applications will be accepted after that date but positions may be limited.
