Summer Ministry Opportunities
Come be part of our TEAM!

Below are some of the Summer Positions available at Bethel Christian Camp.  Not all the positions listed below are being sought for this coming summer, and some may be combined.  This is a summer-long commitment.

Here at Bethel there are many positions that need to be filled in order for the summer to run properly.  Just as the body has many parts, so summer camp has many roles.  What is most important is a willingness to do all work as unto the Lord.  Our goal here at Bethel is to have a unified staff that build each other up and encourage each other as we seek to follow Christ and live in Him.

We believe that each summer we are blessed to be able to minister to the children God sends to this camp. Jesus said “Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”  What a tremendous opportunity and blessing we are given each summer.  If you feel God calling you to serve and love children this summer then please fill out our online application via the link below.

I look forward to hearing from each of you.

Sincerely,
Tom O’Brien
Program Director
