A Letter From our Camp Directors

Summer camp will be here before you know it, and we’re expecting another amazing season at Word of Life. Our online applications for summer camp staff are now available! As we plan for the upcoming summer, we wanted to make you aware of some exciting changes we’ve made to our Camp Crew (formerly STC) program.

Camp Crew members will be officially joining the ranks of our “short-term missions” team at Word of Life. If you’ve served before, you know taking part in the summer team is not simply a job. It’s a real ministry that leads to radically changed lives – yours and the lives of so many others.

Our Camp Crew program is designed to help you grow and put your faith into action like never before! Special ministry training, activities and outreach are planned throughout the entire summer. There’s also the benefit of earning up to $4,000 in Word of Life Bible Institute scholarships by serving during the summer of your junior and senior years.

As part of this program, Word of Life provides room and board. A weekly salary is available for those who choose the option of raising support. We have a team and tools in place to help you in the support raising process.

We look forward to receiving your application. Contact us with any questions at 518-494-6215.

God bless you,

Kyle Gray, Camp Director – The Coast

Jonathan Bubar, Camp Director – NY Family Camps

Tommy Sewall, Camp Director – NY Youth Camps
