Missionary

SERVE WITH PURPOSE

Missionaries play a vital role meeting our Campers' physical, emotional, and spiritual needs for a week. Every summer, thousands of Missionaries from all over the United States join us to serve.

Missionary Roles

Counselors

Age: 15-29

Counselors are our greatest need each year. These incredible individuals experience the week side-by-side with their Camper while providing unconditional love and care for all of their needs during the week. Counselors can receive 75 service hours for a week at Camp.

Barnstormers

Age: 13-14

Barnstormers have a servant’s heart and a great work ethic. They keep the camp in tip-top shape by serving food and tidying up during the week. Barnstormers enjoy building relationships with their bunkmates and creating lasting memories while earning 75 service hours per week.
Note: Depending on our needs, some Barnstormers may be asked to move up to a Counselor role.

Cabin Parents

Age: 29+
Cabin parents play a big part in cheering on Counselors, Campers, and Staff. By providing support and guidance, Cabin Parents facilitate problem-solving and growth for their cabin—all while having a blast. Although this role is titled "parent," adults are encouraged to take a step back during the week and support the Counselors as they serve and the Staff as they lead.

Apostles

Age: Current Sophomores and Juniors in high school


The Apostles Program is designed for Missionaries seeking additional leadership training and service beyond one week at camp. It includes rigorous times of service, caring for individuals with special needs, and leadership training. Apostles get the opportunity to fundraise for support* for their position, which demands high expectations and standards, but our leadership members will walk beside you and invest in you throughout the program.

Over the course of three weeks, apostles will spend time serving different areas of camp as directed by their immediate leaders. The program includes Bible studies led by our leadership as well as community time with others. The program is ideal for those entering their junior or senior year of high school. Students who have completed their senior year of high school are encouraged to apply for the Core Team on Summer Staff.


*Donations for the apostleship program are nonrefundable if an apostle cancels, and will be contributed to the Camper scholarship program.
