You love Jesus. You trust the Bible as God's Word. And you don't just want a "summer job" where you punch in and punch out. You want to develop your skills, grow in your walk with Christ in an awesome community of peers who can support and encourage you.
You're motivated to share your faith in a way that impacts the lives of your peers and will challenge you physically and emotionally as you harness new skills for leading adults and kids alike.
If this summary has your 'ear', then this summer on staff at Trout Lake Camps as a Nature Center Specialist could be your summer job "fit".
This is an entry-level, summer-only role. Prior camp experience is helpful but not required. Successful Nature Center Specialists are great at staying organized, eager to share fun facts, and are excited to share their own love of God's creation with others. They are great at teaching from the front as well as connecting with campers on a one-on-one basis, and they see Creation as an incredible thing that points to an incredible God.
When you join the Trout Lake Camps summer staff, our prayer is that you will grow spiritually in your walk with Jesus, your leadership will be sharper, and you'll see a connection between your work and the work that God does in the lives of campers. Safe, Fun, Gospel are the hallmarks of the Trout staff experience.
