We are now hiring staff for summer 2021!

Apply for Staff



Have you ever wanted an opportunity to have an impact in the Kingdom of God? Join us for a summer set apart from all others to serve the Lord. Share the good news about Jesus with kids and families and have a blast at Ingham and Okoboji. We want you to join our team of friends you’ll always remember for a summer you’ll never forget!


Our summer begins with two weeks of staff training starting on May 29. It is followed by nine weeks of camp, ending on August 15. If you have questions about time off, please contact Dan Antoine, Director of Programs. Junior Counselors typically start one week later, on June 5. Depending on the state of the COVID-19 Pandemic, there could be adjustments to the procedures, dates, and/or positions. Much more information is available about each position by clicking on the link below.


Applications can be completed using our convenient online form, or by downloading the PDF packet.

Please note that the packets have all you need for the application process (application, reference forms, etc.) To view a full, detailed job description of any available position before continuing down to the applications, please click on the individual position listed to the right.


Job Descriptions

The application process is as easy as 1-2-3:


  1. Complete online application form OR download, complete, and return application packet.

  2. Contact three people to serve as references to you, and ask them to fill out the online or paper reference form. 

  3. Schedule an interview (via Skype or in person).


That is all there is to it! Contracts or letters will be sent out to Senior Counselors shortly after the application and interview are completed in full.


Finally, we hope to be visiting several campuses and participating in some online job fairs during the winter months and would love to see you! Check with your campus to see when we will be near you! Or call us to invite us to come talk about this opportunity at your campus ministry or Bible study.
