Our staff works together to carry out this mission to thousands of youth and youth leaders each summer. Here’s what a volunteer said about their staff experience:

“It was really neat to see an entirely different perspective of camp, compared to a camper’s. I had so much fun working together to make the whole camp work smoothly as it did all week, from beginning to end. Everyone came with an open heart and gave so many memories to leave with.”
