Workcamp Leaders—Setup Director, Director, and MC—carry out our mission by encouraging, empowering, and supporting the staff team while building strong connections with those in the community. We depend on our leaders to make camp run smoothly so participants can grow in their relationships with Jesus and communities can be strengthened. Each role is a week-long paid position and requires previous leadership experience and acceptance to our Leaders-in-Training program. There is a minimum age requirement of 25.
