Summer Camp has proven to be a very effective way to reach children and youth. Over the years, literally thousands of kids have come to Christ, received spiritual and emotional release, made fresh commitments and felt called to full-time ministry through the dynamics of Christian camping. Many adults who live fruitful Christian lives can point back to a powerful encounter with God at a summer camp. Elim Fellowship has been ministering to kids, through summer camps, for over fifty years. As a member of the staff at Camp Judah, you will have unique opportunities to be an instrument of God’s love and power, extended to young lives.
What To Expect
As a member of the staff at Camp Judah, you will have unique opportunities to be an instrument of God’s love and power extended to young lives. Expect a personal power encounter in your own life. Please plan for long days, challenging activities, lifelong memories, friends, nature, laughs, prayer, joy, tears, fun, singing, teaching, enthusiasm and more, packed into one week!
Camp staff serve on a volunteer basis; room and board is provided. Staff members are responsible for their own transportation to and from camp. In order to serve on the staff of Camp Judah, you must be born again, oriented towards charismatic ministry, have a pastoral reference, a heart for youth, and be able to successfully lead and supervise campers. You’ll be expected to pitch in and help without complaint wherever needed, to put the campers above yourself, to be an example and a positive role model and to cooperate cheerfully with the camp directors. YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO READ YOUR STAFF ORIENTATION MANUAL, ATTEND THE FULL ORIENTATION ON THE DAY PRIOR TO CAMP, STAY OVER NIGHT AT THE CAMP AND STAY THROUGH THE ENTIRE CAMP, INCLUDING CLEAN-UP ON THE LAST EVENING OF CAMP.

Leadership Training Camp
Staff applications are considered on a first come, first served basis. Age, experience and references are also strong factors as the board makes decisions regarding appointment to camp staff positions. Because of the increase in the number of staff applicants recently, we offer a special Leadership Training Camp that runs concurrent with Junior Camp. This exciting program provides a full camp experience for the participant, daily leadership training sessions led by appointed pastors, and provides hands-on service experience throughout the week. This Leadership Camp experience is open to approved applicants age 13 and older, who desire to be trained in ministry leadership, and who may have not been accepted to serve on staff for this camp because of the lack of available positions. This very special opportunity will be offered at a discounted rate of $160.00 to approved applicants. Participants, along with past camp staff, will also receive priority consideration, if they choose to apply to serve at Camp Judah in the future.
Things To Bring
