Staff a Summer Camp
We appreciate your interest in hosting a week of Christian summer camp at Covenant Mountain Mission Bible Camp. Our summer camps operate by using mission teams and local volunteers to staff each week of camp. We rely upon God to provide workers and funding to continue the ministry at CMMBC.
The staffing needs vary slightly by the age group of the camp that is being sponsored. Some of the roles can be filled by local volunteers, so please communicate any expected gaps in staffing as soon as possible. Although several of the roles may be filled by one person, the roles of nurse, cook and counselor may not be combined with any other roles.
•Counselors (must be at least 1 year post high school graduation)
•Assistants (kitchen, games/activities/ crafts, music, and junior counselors)
Please take time to develop relationships among your team members prior to arriving at CMMBC. Identify directors and counselors as soon as possible. We encourage the formation of small groups for Bible study to facilitate the spiritual growth for your team prior to and during their mission trip.
A church who sponsors a week of summer camp needs to consider the cost of supporting the mission trip.
•Food costs for their own staff (approximately 10 dollars per day per person)
•Supplies for activities/crafts
•Cost of t-shirts for staff
•Cost of background checks
•Transportation costs for day camps
•Canteen or craft supplies
•Supplies (trash bags, paper towel, napkins, cleaning agents, etc.)
Each sponsoring church is responsible for assuring the safety of their teams. Please have medical information sheets, including allergies and insurance information, for each team member prior to your arrival. Individuals under age 18 must also have parental consent forms, and those over 18 must complete volunteer applications (including background check). Most churches have existing processes and forms in place, but do not hesitate to contact us if you need example forms.
Please use the following resources to help your team make preparations for the summer.
