Paid Summer Staff

Indian Lake Camp is looking to hire 20-28 summer staff.  They will need to be God loving, adventure seeking, hardworking and willing to stretch their boundaries!  In the past Indian Lake has relied on volunteers to run all the activities and stay in the cabins with campers but now we are hiring summer staff for all camp positions!  If you have a passion to pour into kids, grow as a leader and plant seeds of faith then this job is for you!

Summer schedule plans for 9 weeks of camp and 1 week of training for a total of 10 weeks starting June 12th through August 18th

You will be trained in CPR, facilitation skills, group dynamics, relationship building, Mental Health First Aid, QPR, Archery, and growing your walk with Christ and much more.  

You will receive room and board along with a salary of $4000 for the full summer (10 weeks).  If you cannot stay the full summer, please let us know the dates and we can work around prorating the salary.  We want to work with your schedule and still keep camp covered, so please tell us your needs as soon as possible! Adult staff is 17 years old and graduated from High School. We can hire a few 16 and over staff to be co-leaders in cabins.

Staff will be responsible for running activities like archery/slingshot, large group, worship, V-Climb, recreation, crafts, social media, crafts, videography etc and be small group/cabin leaders.  Not all staff will run all the stations, but it will depend your preferences, skill set, and camp need as to where you work!  The goal is to train all the staff for as many different roles as possible so that you can be interchangeable and rotate through different roles.  This is an opportunity for you to try new things and build or sharpen some skills.  There will be free time built into your schedule and time off Friday nights and Saturdays.  The goal is that summer staff will be able to rotate as cabin leaders, day camp leaders, large group and activity leaders. This 3-4 week rotation will give you a week with evenings off (day camp leader), a week teaching Large group and running camp activities (building public speaking skills and facilitation), and being a cabin leader (connecting and working one-on-one with campers and being a small group leader).

Each cabin group or day camp group will be a cohort.  Each cohort will consist of 10-14 campers, with 1-2 CITs (Counselors in Training) and 1-2 adultsummer staff.   Each day will be different, but you will have some free time throughout the day depending on the activities or groups you are running.  

On campus housing is provided and weekend meals are included. You are welcome to stay at camp all summer or go home on the weekends. There is laundry facilities on campus for your use.

Can't commit to the whole summer, but still want to make a difference? Then join our volunteer team and come for a few hours, a day, or a few weeks!
