This person will generally answer to and receive assignments from the Program Director (PD) and work closely with the Assistant Program Director (APD). This position was created for a person who is passionate about Bethany Birches Camp’s ministry and can serve to implement the program on a daily and hourly basis.

  • Recreation leadership
  • Worship coordinator (can be delegated as the talents of summer staff are unveiled)
  • Cooperation Course Facilitator (we’ll provide training)
  • Life Guard (we’ll provide training)

  • $165/week for 9 weeks
  • $80/week additional if participating in staff matching
  • Room and board (even during the weekends!)
  • Pay raise if you return for more than one summer
  • With staff matching, you could earn up to $2400 for the summer

Staff Matching: We’ll provide you with a great sample letter to send out to friends, family, or your church. Any money that these people send in, we’ll match dollar for dollar. (We can only match for an additional $80/week)

Many of our staff come back year after year, and we love that! We try to encourage all of our staff to return by offering them a pay raise for each summer they return!
