“Having not come from a Christian family or strong Christian community of friends, KC provided me with an opportunity to work alongside fellow believers. Going through the summer by solely relying on God for His strength and guidance allowed me to take one step closer to Jesus in my day-to-day life now that I am back at school. Prayer, acts of selfless love and engaging conversation about the Lord with other staff members encouraged me to continue to pursue God’s best in my life.” – 2015 River Team Staff Member
It’s not only the campers who have their lives transformed each summer at Kidder Creek but it’s the staff as well. This summer we will hire 58 summer staff to join us in our mission of helping campers meet Jesus through a super fun-filled and adventurous week of camp. Those staff that join us in that mission will also leave transformed as they take one step closer to Jesus by relying on God for strength and His work in their own lives as they strive to serve and love the campers God brings to camp.
Previous staff consistently point to two things that they love about working at Kidder Creek and that lead to them having a life transforming time at camp. The first is the community: being a part of a team of peers who have come together to do God’s work, to encourage and build each other up in that ministry, and to have supervisors who care about you, pray for you and want to see you grow in the Lord. The second is the ministry: laying it all on the line, setting aside your needs so you can meet someone else’s, to be completely empty of your own strength and to have to rely on the Lord’s strength to keep loving the campers.
“I learned to better rely on Him for strength when I was weak, I learned to better see and love others the way that He does, I learned to trust Him to speak through me when I was unsure of what to say and He gave me the words I needed to say.” – 2015 Ranch Camp Staff Member
God uses our summer staff to impact the hundreds of campers that attend camp each summer, and God is using their time at camp to draw them to Himself, to serve Him in the present as well as to prepare them for future ministry.
