“It’s the hardest job you’ll ever love.” We’re looking for people who are interested in serving in a Christian environment, working hard, building friendships that will last forever, growing spiritually, and sharing their lives.
An Opportunity of a Lifetime
If you’ve been around Inspiration Point before, you’ve probably heard the phrase “Lives are changed at camp!” It’s true. The Lord does amazing things at this place; things we get to witness and participate in. This is a job with a purpose!
We take staff hiring very seriously. Everyone from counselor to cook plays a vital role in this ministry, and Inspiration Point has always been blessed with outstanding summer team members. Perhaps you’ll be among the 80 servants reporting to work at The Point this summer. If so, you’re in for an experience of a lifetime!
Go ahead. Read over this information, pray about the possibility of serving at Inspiration Point, and submit your application. Those who are hired can expect an incredible adventure. After all, it’s not just campers’ lives that are changed here, it’s the lives of staff members as well. That’s why summer staffers typically return year after year.
Please be sure to carefully review each section of the staff application before hitting submit. Each applicant is required to provide three references. Your references should include a Christian worker (pastor, youth leader, etc.) and an employer or teacher. If you are a new applicant, reference forms will be sent directly to your references via email within 48 hours. You are responsible for following up with your references to be sure they received the form. New applications will not be processed until all three reference forms are returned. If you have any questions about your application, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Working at camp requires the pouring out of one’s self. Of course, no one can pour themselves out if they’re running on empty. In order to encourage one another in a lifestyle of service, functions such as Bible studies, meetings, worship services, opportunity to be mentored, and a special Staff Rejuvenation Day are integrated into the summer schedule. All staff members receive five weekends off during the summer plus some additional days. And when you work a weekend, your duties still allow you some time to rest, talk with friends, and enjoy the wide variety of recreation offered on our beautiful site.
