Join Our Staff


This summer, make a difference in the lives of others.

A message from the program director:

Camp is in need of energetic college and high school age staff who love Christ, children, and the outdoors. If that sounds like you, I hope you will apply. A full listing of summer staff positions, along with a description of each, is printed below.

Our goal at Camp Deerpark is to “Empower Youth to Serve Christ in the City”. This means campers need a counselor that is loving and supportive, a role model for them to follow. A summer at camp is a summer filled with challenges and opportunities to grow and learn new skills. It can be draining, frustrating, exciting, and a lot of fun all in the same day. And even if the pay is less than glamorous, the experience always makes being on staff at camp worthwhile!
