Summer Camp Staff & Volunteers
The biggest need is for adult cabin counselors/skill activity instructors to supervise, teach and minister to campers spiritually. In addition, a safe and successful summer requires specialty staff such as lifeguards, medical personnel, technology and media crew, musicians, worship leaders, Bible teachers and program specialists.
Streamside staff members who commit to the entire summer outreach program receive compensation. There are a limited number of extended stay options for the month of August.
Can’t serve the whole summer? Consider volunteering for one or two weeks.
