Employment, Internships & Volunteer Opportunities

Summer Camp Staff & Volunteers
Each summer Streamside assembles a team to reach children, teens and families from urban environments. The summer begins in mid-June with 10 days of training and extends to the end of July.

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.

Streamside’s Service & Leadership Training (SLT) is designed for young people who want to mature in the Christian faith and have a desire to serve God and others.

Streamside’s Counselor In Training (CIT) is the next step for young adults to serve alongside an experienced cabin counselor and develop their leadership skills and put their Christian walk into practice

Streamside Off Season Camps and Retreats
Each February, Streamside conducts a Winter Blast. This is a great way to “test the waters” and see if God is calling you to the ministry of Streamside or to come back for a reunion with campers and staff. We are not able to pay for your service; however, the weekends are completely free to volunteers.

For those who want to invest in the lives of older campers, we host an intergenerational retreat on Labor Day for Streamside alumni age 16 to adult.

Weekend Retreats
If you are local to the Poconos and are available to help throughout the year, Streamside requires both part time and volunteer chefs, kitchen staff, housekeepers, maintenance workers, skill instructors, office help and retreat hosts to provide a quality Christian camping experience to churches and other groups that retreat at Streamside.
