Why work at a summer camp
Working at a camp as a counselor, program, or support staff gives you invaluable experience in several areas. You develop leadership and organizational skills, refine your interpersonal skills, and improve your communication skills. You are stretched, mentored, and as a result, you grow in ways that will benefit you both personally and professionally.
When someone asks: why don’t you get a “real job”?
We understand the need for personal and professional growth through experiences. We also recognize the pressure you feel from school and potential future employers to show off a variety of skills. We want to debunk the common myth that a camp job is effortless fun all day long. It is one of the “realest jobs” out there. To help you verbalize the professional and personal benefits of working at a summer camp, we put together this list of skills you will develop and improve while you work at Camp.

Why work at Camp Men-O-Lan
Men-O-Lan’s mission is Life Change through Christ. Every single member on our Team is here to provide the backdrop and facilitate positive change and personal growth in the life of campers and staff alike. Our Camp has been a safe haven for thousands of children and youth for 80 years. At Men-O-Lan we put high emphasis on campers’ and staff members’ spiritual well-being and regularly provide opportunities for worship, Bible study, group devotionals, and individual and corporate prayer. If you would like to be a part of something greater than you, this is a fantastic opportunity!
Who are our campers?
Our campers come from K-12th grade, every background, and every segment of our society. A large number of our campers don’t know Jesus personally! God uses our staff to reach these young people with the Gospel, and create an atmosphere where they feel safe, loved, and important. Every single person on our Team is part of the great mission of facilitating “Life Change through Christ”.
Who are our Summer Team members?
After the Holy Spirit, they are the most important part of our ministry, and we love and cherish them. We handpick every single person on our Team to best serve our campers. Applicants go through an extensive screening process including a written application, an in-person (when that is not possible, a Zoom or phone) interview, and several references. We are looking for committed Christians who submit to God and His Word, who want to serve others, have a compassionate and kind heart, and are able to balance truth and love.
