Bible Camp Opportunities

There are several ways throughout the year to get involved at camp. However, there’s no bigger need for camp and opportunity for you than the four weeks of Bible Camp we have in July and August. In order to host 100 campers, we need a support staff of directors, deans, cooks, lifeguards, maintenance support, and nurses. The sessions run from Sunday through Saturday. If you aren’t able to assist the entire week, that’s ok! If you have children attending camp one of the sessions, what better way to be with them that week! As a reminder, if a parent volunteers for a session at camp, the family will receive one free registration!  If you would like more information about volunteering for a position for Bible Camp, you can send an e-mail to youthbiblcamp@campcroix.org. To apply for a position, please click HERE. (You’ll be taken to a site called Camp Brain)

Camp Opening and Shut Down

Another opportunity camp could use your time and talents is “opening” and “shutting down” of camp. Although there are some year-round facilities, each spring we prepare the winterized facilities and grounds for the season and in the fall we prepare the grounds and facilities for the winter months. If you’d like to help open or close camp, many hands make the work light. We always have coordinators who make a list of duties and facilitate the work, so all you have to do is show up! Doesn’t matter your skillset or knowledge, we can find something for you to do that you’re comfortable with and within your limitations. An added bonus to helping camp is you get to stay the weekend for FREE!

2020 Camp opening is not scheduled yet, but stay tuned for a date.  If you would like to make a reservation that weekend, please send an e-mail to register@campcroix.org.

Other Opportunities

Even if those opportunities don’t work for you, if you’re willing to volunteer your time, talent, and treasures, Camp Croix would greatly appreciate it. If you’re coming up to camp for a weekend, bringing a group for a retreat, or coming with your family and want to complete a project, let us know! Just send an e-mail to info@campcroix.org and we will give you options!
