Junior Staff Application


It’s that time of year — we are now recruiting workers for the 2017 summer season at Youth Haven Bible Camp! As always, we need counselors, kitchen and maintenance workers, housekeeping staff, day camp helpers, horse workers and lifeguards. Nurses and first aid workers are needed, as well. If you would like to apply, please read and complete the application (17jrapplication). Even if you’ve worked in the past, we must have a current application on file. Please be sure to answer every question, to sign Section D, and to have another adult witness and sign Section D. Anything you leave out will cause a delay in processing your application. Counseling applicants, as you complete Section B, question #2 — please read the Statement of Faith (page 4 of the application) before answering this question.

We accept only a limited number of applicants, based on positions available, so it is wise to apply early. Your prior attitude and work ethic (if you have previously worked at YHBC), along with your church attendance, references and qualification for the position you request will all be evaluated prior to accepting or denying your application.

Local junior staff workers must be at least 14 years old; and out-of-town workers requiring weekend accommodations must be 16 (unless supervised by a parent or church youth leader).

If your application is accepted, you are expected to attend the Staff Orientation, June 6-9 (Tuesday through Friday). If you cannot attend Orientation, you will not be able to work the Teen and Grade School Camps. If you would still like to work the Sunshine weeks, you may indicate that on your application, as there is a special orientation session on the Sunday night before each Sunshine Camp. Other than college-age students, we cannot promise anyone a full summer of work. We will work with college students to meet internship requirements.

Please pray with us for the upcoming camp season — and return your application as soon as possible if you would like to serve as part of Youth Haven’s 2017 summer staff. If you would like to help at the spring retreats, we must hear from you before March 6, 2017.
