Summer Staff

Thank you for your interest in serving underprivileged youth at Camp of the Hills. Here, our Summer staff truly acts as the hands and feet of Christ in our efforts to reveal His love to each camper. Our desire is to love God’s children by noticing and praising the godly attributes they possess and devoting our time and attention to encouraging them in every moment. Through sacrifice for the sake of the campers we hope to live out God’s command to carry each other’s burdens and build each other up. Camp of the Hills brings together a unique and diverse group of believers, all of whom are sacrificing their summers to unite for a common mission. The culture of this place builds community among the staff that will continue after the summer and beyond camp grounds. You will find being a part of what God is doing here a rewarding experience.
