What we need
We believe that a staff team is made up of a group of individuals daily living out the Biblical "one another" statements. You may be hired primarily as a lifeguard or a rec leader, but as we serve one another and our campers, it is not uncommon to add some responsibilities or move positions from week to week as needs arise.
Most frequent questions and answers
Though the list of reasons to join the BLC family is almost endless, here’s just a few of the best. The community you’ll build during your time at Camp will lead to lifelong relationships, the skills you gain will boost your resume and prepare you for your future career, parenthood, and marriage, and your time at Camp will deepen your faith and allow you to rely on the Lord at a whole different level. It’s possible that working at BLC may be the “hardest job that I’ve loved the most.” it will also be the most fun and fulfilling! Come make the most of your summer by impacting the eternity of 6-18 year olds!
Counseling Staff, Rec Leaders, Videographers, Photographers, and Worship Leaders must be at least 18 years old.
Lifeguards and Craft Leaders must be at least 16 years old.
While you won’t get rich working at summer camp, it also doesn’t pay as bad as you think. Pay starts at $150 per week for high school students and $250 per week for college age students and while that isn’t much, you also don’t spend much. All meals, lodging, and fun are built into your package. So now that you don’t have any excuses, what are you waiting for?
On top of your pay, some colleges and universities offer opportunity for some of your pay to be converted to a matching grant which can be applied to your college tuition.
We are willing to work with your schedule to make working at camp a reality for you! We understand that your life outside of camp is busy and you have other obligations to take care of. Certain positions at Bear Lake require that you are present for the full summer, while others have the flexibility to work with your summer needs. Still not sure how to make camp work with your schedule? Contact us and we can talk through options specific for you.
We can help with internship requirements! Believe it or not, there are various positions available at Camp that can help you further your career. BLC has been able to help out several former staff members with internship credit in different positions. Talk with your advisor or professor and let us know how we can help! Let us know about your internship questions or needs when you apply.
Bible study is an important time each day, and you will have the opportunity to see campers be challenged to grow in their faith. As a counselor, you will help lead daily Bible study for your campers within your cabin. Counselors focus on building relationships with campers just as Christ built relationships with people during His ministry. At BLC, we are confident that God works in His time to reach people with His good news; therefore, it is our goal to love campers and live our lives in a way that exemplifies Jesus Christ and what it means to have a personal relationship with Him. It is not our goal to convert every camper by Friday night but challenge them to grow in their relationships with Jesus Christ.
Mandatory Staff Training starts in Early June and the camp concludes for Staff in late July.
Applications are due by May 1st. The earlier you submit your application the better!
