Life-Changing Ministry Opportunity
More than most any other job, working at camp will have a great impact on you in many ways. You quickly find that in your own strength, you are lacking. You MUST rely on the Holy Spirit to give you strength. You also learn that this life is not about you. As a Christian, we are called to live a life sold out to Christ. One of the biggest ways we do this is by serving others. This quality is never more important than it is at camp. Working at Waukaway Springs, you will learn what it truly means to put others before yourself. Whether it is the guests, fellow staffers, or a visitor that shows up to find out about the camp, we learn to lay aside our own desires and meet the needs of others first. It is truly an experience that you will never forget.
I am allowed to be my truest self at Waukaway. I am given the freedom to let God shape and grow me into something I never could have become on my own. The work is hard, the days are long, but the reward from serving the Lord in such a way is too great to be counted.

Waukaway Springs gave me a new name and revealed to me my purpose on earth as a servant through camp ministry. I never worked a day at Waukaway, I simply served God’s kingdom.
