Whether you’re staff alumni or you’re brand new to Sunset Lake, we always welcome volunteers at Sunset Lake. This opportunity is great for those looking to experience camp for 1 or 2 weeks or even the whole summer. You will still have to go through the application process and supply three references.
If you are 15–17 years of age and serious about working at camp someday, our week-long summer staff internships are the perfect opportunities. Spend a week learning the ins and outs of camp, growing yourself as a leader and discovering what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. During the week you will live in camper cabin and assist the counselor. You will assist in various areas of camp and choose one area of interest to shadow. While this is not a guarantee of future work, this experience is a great way to see if a summer at camp is right for you. Be prepared to supply three references. After your references are reviewed you will be notified if you have been accepted into the program.
