OPPORTUNITIES WITH SUMMER MISSIONS

SUMMER STAFF

First and foremost, you are answering Christ’s call to build up His Kingdom on earth. Throughout the summer, you will lead middle and/or high school teens closer to Christ through service, relationship, and prayer. You are joining the mission of Life Teen Summer Camps to create an environment for teens to meet Jesus Christ and develop a discipleship relationship with Him.

As a missionary, you are also responding to Christ’s invitation to deepen your personal relationship with Him and experience ongoing spiritual formation. You will be part of a mission community that together lives a structured and sacramental prayer life, supports one another in common mission, and holds each other accountable.

SERVICE CREW

Service crew is the behind-the-scenes team that serves in a variety of roles around camp. 

From cooking meals in the kitchen, to shooting the camp video, to keeping the grounds looking clean, and much more in between, service crew is a great opportunity to dive deeper as a summer missionary in a teamwork-oriented, humbling, fulfilling role. Service crew members don’t have as much teen interaction as summer staff, but there are abundant ministry opportunities in each role available.

SERVICE CREW POSITIONS:

  • Hospitality Team
  • Program Team
  • Videographer
  • Kitchen Team
  • Office Intern
  • Audio/Visual Support
  • Facilities Team
  • Photographer
  • Wellness Assistant

Are you interested in serving on Service Crew but can’t commit to 12 weeks? Apply for half the summer now! **Not all positions are eligible as half sessions. During the interview process your interviewer will talk more with you about what positions are eligible for half the summer.

MISSION PARTNERING

A vital part of Life Teen Summer Missions is inviting people to join you as mission partners; they will support you spiritually and financially through prayers and donations. No mission is successful without support; not only will camp be covered with intercession, but you will also be including individuals and families in the mission.

Recognize what it means to truly abide, disciple, and persevere.
