Cost: $720

Do you dream of working at camp? Do you want to give back to the camp where you have attended? Join the Jr Camp Team! Being a part of the Jr. Camp Team means that you are a part of our summer team and most importantly, our ministry. JCT members spend part of the day digging into faith and making fun memories with their peers, while the rest of the day is about hands on learning and gaining experience by facilitating traditions and activities. Our goal is to give our Jr Camp Team an opportunity to try new things, practice leadership, discover camp behind the scenes, and grow in faith. The dates listed are for JCT week- the week of the summer we pour into our Jr Camp Team’s faith and leadership development. At the end of the week, JCT members may be invited back for additional weeks, depending on camp’s needs. Volunteer hours are available for JCT members as needed. The first step in this program is to apply (not register). Not all applicants will be selected for this program, however, we encourage all interested to apply- you may be surprised where God takes you when you step out in faith. After application, there will be a brief interviewing process, followed by the registration of our top 10 candidates. Yes- only 10 applicants will make up the Jr Camp Team. Applications may be found on our website (LINK HERE)
