Why should I do Summer Staff?

I​t's not often in life that we get to evaluate our purpose, map out our future and reflect on our past. As a volunteer on summer staff at a Young Life camp, you'll have the chance to grow personally and spiritually — you'll be surrounded by other people from all over the world who, like yourself, really want their life to count for something.
You'll have a chance to try new things and to spend a month at one of the most beautiful places on God's earth. You'll also be challenged to take your faith to a new level and learn how to serve like Jesus did thousands of years ago.

You'll also find yourself refreshed by hundreds of kids you've impacted during the summer — kids you've helped have the best week of their lives at a Young Life camp.
Yes, it will be hard work, but there's a big payoff — changed lives — yours and the kids you influence.
Summer staff is the volunteer experience for those who have completed at least one year of college (or are of college or post-college age). The summer staff serve the campers at Young Life camps in roles which require considerable maturity and non-verbal witness. Some of these positions are staffing the ropes course, climbing wall, mountain bikes and waterfront.


Your completed online application will be directly routed to your first-choice camp. Contact the Heath Sizick, 304.940.9090 or Ben Tuel, 304.610.8175​ with questions.

Summer staff applications will be reviewed for acceptance beginning January 1. Qualified applicants will be accepted into positions based on the order applications are received.  The sooner you apply, the better your chances of being accepted.
Your first-choice camp will send your application/recommendation information to second and third choices. Do not send multiple copies to different camps. This can cause confusion between camps and can result in an applicant not being placed anywhere.​
