Camp Buckeye is always looking for a strong summer ministry team to make “God, Kids & the Woods… Connecting and Growing” a reality in our summer camp programs.
As a gospel outreach oriented, non-denominational independent Bible camp, we serve about 160 youth each summer. We reach local youth from our area, love them and introduce them to Jesus as savior. Many of these young people are from disadvantaged backgrounds. Staff is needed for each week that loves kids, loves the outdoors, and is willing to serve, with high energy and solid Christian testimony.
Please contact us if you would be interested in serving in this area.
