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 25. It is followed by nine weeks of camp, ending on August 11. Time off is available by request, and can be discussed in the application and interview. Junior Counselors typically start one week later, on June 1. Much more information is available about each position by clicking on the link below.



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 Zoom or in person).


That is all there is to it! A decision of hire letter will be sent out to applicants shortly after the application, references, and interview are completed in full.


Finally, we hope to be visiting several campuses and participating in 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.
