Don't take our word for it

We asked our 2023 Summer Staffers what they would tell someone who was thinking about serving on 2024 Summer Staff, and here’s what they said:

This is the first job I’ve had where I’m excited to work when I wake up in the morning.

Working on Summer Staff has equipped me with many valuable life skills and relationships that will last me a lifetime. Serving others through Camp was the best decision I made this summer, and I am so blessed that I was able to grow in my faith and work abilities.

Working at Camp allowed me to develop leadership skills, foster a sense of purpose, and create lasting memories, all while singing silly campfire songs around a starlit campfire. The staff community offered a profound sense of belonging. For me, the camp experience was a journey of self-discovery, meaningful connections, and a glad sense of serving the place that has served me all my childhood.

Serving on summer staff is an opportunity to grow closer to God through service while also growing closer to the other staffers and the guests you serve. Each day you have the chance to show God’s love to others and make a difference in their lives. All the while, you get to work alongside your best friends and have a blast. Summer staff is an incredibly fulfilling experience that leaves you feeling stronger in your faith and more connected to those around you.
