Serve Christ at Wood Lake This Summer

More Than a Job. It's a Ministry.

If you are looking for a significant way to serve God this summer, prayerfully consider working at Wood Lake. Serving is hard work but has many rewards. The interaction with campers and fellow staff encourages spiritual growth and lasting friendships.

Summer 2024 Staff Openings

Program Staff are the wild side of camp. In this role, you will get to serve campers by helping run program areas (such as the climbing tower and archery tag), washing dishes, running the boathouse, and doing accommodations among other things.

Counselors get the most time with our campers. Being a counselor means you will lead a cabin of campers through a week of games, worship, messages, cabin times, and plenty of nine-square.

Camp Nurses will administer medications throughout the week so that both campers and parents will have ease of mind while being at camp. Nurses will also assist campers with first-aid when necessary, helping them get back on their feet and back into the fun.

The Sous Chef will be in charge of the kitchen and meals when the food director is not present. They will direct the execution of recipes as well as guide food prep for future meals.

The Prep Chef will help prepare meals and get items ready for future meals. Preparation activities include preparing ingredients, salads, desserts, and other cooking materials.

Lifeguards protect our campers while they are having fun at the waterfront, as well as a part of the program staff. Responsibilities for lifeguards include keeping track of all the campers in the water and supervising waterfront activities.

Paid & volunteer positions are available. Summer staff must be at least 15 years old.

Summer Staff Support Raising

The support that the ministry receives for each staff will be put into an account to help pay for all of the salaried summer staff positions. Your help and involvement in this process is a significant blessing to the overall ministry of Wood Lake.
