Summer will be here before you know it...

For many of you, that means that you’re looking ahead for the right summer job.  However we want to invite you in to a summer experience so much bigger than just another job.

Working at Camp Kerusso means being a part of something so much bigger than yourself. It's an opportunity to make an impact for the kingdom right here in your own backyard. If you spend the summer with us, we promise you will be pushed out of your comfort zone. Uncomfortable right? Sure, but it's only in that uncomfortable space that we grow. Sure you'll be challenged, but you will have a community alongside you every step of the way. You'll be encouraged and challenged in your faith through studying Scripture, discipleship and relationship. You'll do life with a group of individuals uniquely gifted, each with their own story, but driven by the same goals: to love our campers well, to share the gospel every day, and to grow in their relationship with Jesus.

We would love to see you use your unique gifts and talents to serve the Camp Kerusso community. Check out the variety of positions available to see what might be the best fit for you this summer.
