Volunteers are the foundation of North Central Camp Cherith! From the Board of Directors, committee work, one-time event/project work, promoting camp at churches and events, praying, to coming up to camp in a one week position, volunteers bring gifts and life to all aspects of camp! There are many wonderful opportunities for you to be involved in a ministry that impacts campers for life, as well as using your specific talents and gifts to bring glory to God!
Whether you’re interested in doing a one-time project or becoming a member of a specific team, or want to spend a week at summer camp – we’d love to talk with you!
Come up to camp for a week! Summer camp volunteer positions include kitchen assistants, tuck shop managers, teaching activities, maintenance help, and more. Volunteers receive free lodging and food, and a $125 camper credit to designate to a camper of their choice.
Here’s a quote from a long time one week summer volunteer Beth Davis Salonek:
