Do you want to spend your summer changing the lives of young people? Is your faith an important and vital part of who you are? Have you thought about looking into Christian camp jobs but didn’t know if there were many opportunities? Would you love to spend a summer in a different part of the country? If you have asked yourself these questions, you are in for some great news.
There are many Christian camp jobs, and they are available just about everywhere! A recent survey turned up current openings in states as diverse as Florida, Ohio, Washington, Hawaii, California, Colorado, Alaska, Vermont and Alabama. In fact, it’s hard to find a state that doesn’t have Christian camp jobs that need mature, faithful college-aged students that are excited about their walk with God and excited about fostering a life-giving faith in the lives of others.
And the types of Christian Camp jobs vary as much as the locations that offer them! Have you ever dreamed of working on a ranch? How about working at an outdoor adventure camp in the great state of Washington? Or how about spending your summer at a beautiful lake surrounded by 10,000 breathtaking acres of the Pike National Forest?
There is a long tradition of Christian camp jobs being located in some of the most beautiful places in America. Those whose lives have been changed by God, and whose lives were also changed by a summer of Christian camping have donated land and funding to create some of the most spectacular camp locations a young person could experience. And you can too.
The best ways to find Christian camp jobs are to pray, network, research and ask a lot of question. Pray that God would bring clarity to your search and open the doors to the opportunity that He knows is right for you. Network with your local church, church association, friends and families to find out who has had great experiences in Christian summer camps. Personal and first-hand feedback is usually the most reliable.
Take time to research the types of Christian camp jobs available, what exactly they are looking for, and where (and how far from home) you want to spend your summer. Most camps advertise the Christian camp jobs that are available on their own websites, and there are also large Christian camp associations that post positions from member camps around the country. So, start dreaming about spending a summer that may change your life and the lives of others!
