Camp DeSoto counselors are nurturing, hard working, creative, thoughtful, and fun. They are teachers, leaders, servants, and friends.

Camp DeSoto Staff walk in love and rely on grace.

This job will stretch you. Being a Camp DeSoto counselor is hard work. You will be challenged to lean into God’s strength and discover your own depths.

The joys, friendships, lessons learned, and campers loved will enrich your life forever.

We are still accepting applications for adult staff postions. The deadline for college applications was January 5, 2018. However, if you are a college student interested in a position on either Program or SERVE Staff, please contact Sarah. There may still be a few spots available.

We will conduct interviews for college staff in January and February 2018. Staffing decisions will be made in early March, and job offers will be extended by March 15th. If you have a conflict with this timeline, please let us know, and we’ll see what we can work out.

(The adult staff hiring timeline varies, so please touch base with Phil to learn more about that process.)

If you have any questions about the staff application process, please contact Sarah.

Camp DeSoto Staff members must be at least 18 years old and have completed their freshman year of college by June 2018. All Staff members are required to attend Pre-Camp Training June 1 - 7, 2018.

If you are hoping to be a Camp DeSoto counselor this summer, we suggest you spend time with kids! Find a job babysitting or volunteer at an after school program. Look for opportunities to care for other people and stretch your service muscle. We look forward to talking with you about your experiences.
