Service Crew is an opportunity for High School Students to experience an incredible adventure of following Christ. When we truly follow Christ – moment by moment, selflessly, and without excuse, it is a definite adventure and most rewarding!
Come join our team and be a part of this summer’s adventure.
Bear Lake Camp’s Service Crew is a volunteer, servant leadership program for High School Students. This program has become a critical component for the summer staff, the campers and the entire program. Service Crew is intentionally designed to teach positive and responsible work habits, to promote teamwork and team living, and to encourage excellence in all we do for the Lord (Col 3:23).
