Volunteering for Summer Staff

Applications Open Dec 1, 2020

To be eligible for Summer Staff, you must be 19 years of age or one year out of high school. Summer Staff roles require considerable maturity and non-verbal witness serving the campers in a variety of ways like lifeguarding, boat drivers, challenge course and retail.

It’s not often in life that we get to evaluate our purpose, map out our future and reflect on our past. As a volunteer on Summer Staff at a Young Life camp, you’ll have the chance to grow personally and spiritually — you’ll be surrounded by other people like yourself who really want their life to count for something. We think you’ll come away from your experiences at camp better equipped to make choices about your future plans, education and career.

You’ll also find yourself refreshed by the hundreds of kids you’ve impacted during the summer — kids you’ve helped have the best week of their lives at a Young Life camp.

While volunteering on Summer Staff, you’ll meet people from all over the country, and even from around the world. At the end of you session, many of these people will be considered your lifelong friends. You’ll have a chance to try new things and to spend time at one of the most beautiful places on God’s earth. You’ll also be challenged to take your faith to a new level and learn how to serve like Jesus did thousands of years ago.

Yes, it will be hard work, but there’s a big payoff — changed lives — yours and the kids you influence.
