Want more than a summer job?

How would you like a summer job that is not only fun but also lets you enjoy the great outdoors while being with an amazing group of staff members that are making an eternal difference in the lives of campers and each other? There are many opportunities for men and women to serve on our staff. We are looking for energetic and enthusiastic college age students to be cabin counselors, lifeguards and activity leaders. Adults of all ages and parents may also serve on staff as activity leaders, cooks or nurses for example. Parents can serve while their children enjoy the fun of being campers. Ask about our reduced fees for campers of parent volunteers.

Would you like to make Christian friends and grow spiritually this summer?

At Camp Cherith you will be working with other dedicated Christians who desire to live the abundant life of Christ in front of campers. You will also have opportunities to lead Bible studies with campers and participate in a staff Bible study.
