Click the link above to fill out your application to be on Junior Staff for Summer 2017.
The application deadline is March 1st.
Each summer, Lakeview Ministries accepts high school youth to serve as Junior Staff (Counselors, Crafts, Kitchen, Lifeguard, Maintenance, Wrangler) at the Camp Lakeview and Lakeview Villages sites. Applicants must be at least 15 years of age and a sophomore in high school. Each Junior Staff will volunteer their service for one cycle lasting one to two weeks.
What Does It Cost?
Volunteering as a Junior Staff is ABSOLUTELY FREE! Lakeview Ministries provides you with room and board, a free T-Shirt, and $10 per week for spending money at the Camp Lakeview and Lakeview Villages canteens. In addition, you will also receive some life-long friendships, wonderful memories, and opportunities to grow in your own faith while sharing the Gospel with others through your words and servanthood.
What is a Junior Staff?
Good question! JS serve in almost every capacity that a camp counselor or support staff member is expected to. In this role, you will have opportunities to build relationships with campers as well as staff that will be a blessing to you for years to come. For each week that the JS serves, they will be assigned to a different counselor or staff member to mentor them as they are put in leadership positions with the campers. Junior Staff will also be asked to assist with some meals as well as minor housekeeping projects. The Junior Staff are not only an integral part of the ministry at Lakeview Ministries, but they are also given opportunities to be fed spiritually themselves. What a great opportunity to experience all of the fun activities of camp from a different perspective!!
