Summer Staff

Do something that matters this summer.

Serve at camp.


How do I apply?

To apply, all you have to do is:

  1. Go HERE to complete an application.
  2. Wait to be contacted by your first choice camp to set up an interview (usually within 2 weeks).

The initial deadline for applications is February 10th.  While we may still continue to accept applications after this date, we make the majority of our hiring decisions in February.

That’s it.  Pretty simple.  If you have questions about it, you can email Danny.

Why do I have to apply through the NLOMA website?

At Lakeview Ministries, we are a partner camp of the National Lutheran Outdoors Ministry Association (NLOMA).  This organization is made up of more than 25 LCMS camp across the country.  We share a common application with the other NLOMA camps.  This means that when you apply to work at Lakeview Ministries, your application will also be seen by the other NLOMA camps.  Don’t worry, we get first dibs, but if you don’t wind up working here, you have the opportunity to work at many other places across the country!

You can explore the many different camps that make up NLOMA by going HERE.  Who knows?  God may be calling you to a new place this summer!

What kind of people are you looking for?

We want people who love Jesus, love kids, and are willing to put their faith into action to serve in our outdoor ministry.  Also, you need to be at least a year out of high school.  If you haven’t ever attended camp at Lakeview Ministries or aren’t a huge outdoor expert, don’t worry!  Each summer we hire people who are brand new to camp.

What positions do you offer?

At Lakeview Ministries, we hire 44 summer staff.  The following positions are available each summer.  On your application you will be able to list your top three position choices, as well as any other positions you may be interested in.  We may ask you about serving in a position you did not put as one of your top choices.  Positions offered are:

Camp  Lakeview:
Lakeview Villages:

How long do I work?  How much do I get paid?

Most summer positions begin in mid-May and end in early August.  All of the above positions carry a base pay of at least $300 per week, plus room and board. In addition to pay, you’ll also receive life-long friendships, a stronger faith, wonderful memories, and the chance to spread the Gospel to over 2,200 campers. If you have ever experienced camp in a Christian setting, you know what a difference the camp staff can make in the lives of the campers. If you have never experienced camp in any way, shape, or form, then this could be your chance.

Don’t delay.  Even though it seems early, each year we try to receive all applications, conduct all interviews, and make final selections by mid-February.  If you have any questions or would like more information, call the camp office at or fill out the form below.
