Your Journey Starts Here

We believe in the importance of raising up disciplined, young spiritual leaders.

Arise is a program designed for teenagers, ages 15-17, who are looking to develop spiritually, professionally, and academically. Our SLTs (Service & Leadership Trainees) serve as intern staff during our camps, learning core skills in operations, hospitality, ministry, and business. The work is difficult, but necessary for the development of work ethic that is emblematic of a quality leader.

When considering if this program is right for you, ask yourself whether the added privileges are worth the added responsibilities. SLTs experience camp as outsiders, often enjoying special benefits that other campers don’t. The cost, however, is that SLTs work when other campers don’t.

Hopefully we will be seeing you soon but if not, remember this, Colossians 3:23 says “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord…”

Helpful Information

All SLT applicants are expected to fill out their application with sufficient detail so that we can get a good idea of their goals, experience, and spiritual gifts. In addition to this, at least two references must be included in the application – preferably one pastoral reference from a local church.

Be sure to fill out the application as detailed as possible, as failing to do so may result in your application being denied.

All returning SLTs will be required to complete the new application. We are changing the program and will need to assess each candidate to ensure that they are a good fit for this program.

Please fill out your application completely, being a returning SLT will not be enough to grant you acceptance if your application is incomplete.

SLTs will be provided with the following benefits:

  • 1-on-1 mentorship with camp staff.
  • Leadership and job experience.
  • 25% discount for Winter Blast as a camper.
  • 1 Spring weekend and 5 Summer weeks
  • Weekly snack shop credit during Summer Camp.
  • Meals and Housing on camp during intern events.
  • Bus from Philadelphia, pickup in local area if needed.

The SLT Membership Fee is a one-time, $200 fee that covers a part of our overhead with processing applications and programming.

If you are unable to make this payment at one time, a monthly or quarterly payment plan can be setup by request. 

All SLTs in good standing will be granted a quality job reference from the Director, as well as assistance in building their resume.
