2018 Kitchen Summer Positions

2018 STAFF APPLICATION-Kitchen Year Round Staff

Summer Staff – (Youth Staff / Counselors)
Is God calling you in a special way to serve Him this summer through outdoor ministry? Mount Carmel calls 20-25 college age youth to Christian service each summer (mid-June through late August). These Summer Staff members have an opportunity to develop their own gifts, leadership skills, and faith while growing with others in a close Christian community. Free room and board along with a stipend, Summer Staff help teach youth, lead devotions and worship, organize games, wash dishes, clean cabins, life guard, and mentor other youth in the context of a family camp – with parents, grandparents, even aunts and uncles, or cousins. It’s family camp!

The follow steps must be taken in order to be considered for a summer staff position at Mount Carmel. All hires are subject to a criminal background check prior to employment. Application deadline is December 15th for new applicants.
