Why Join Summer Staff?
At Word of Life Youth Camp, we have an amazing staff team. The relationships and bonds that are formed while working at WOLYC is one of the main reasons our summer staff come back year after year. You will be learning, serving, and growing with a team of people who are there to support you and grow with you.
It is our goal to train our summer staff in effective youth ministry which prioritizes evangelism and discipleship. We want to see our summer staff serve in ministry at camp, and in their communities and local churches back home. Our belief is that revival in Canada starts with youth, therefore we operate a summer camp program that centers around the Gospel.
It is important to us that our staff are learning and growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ during the summer. Staff have the opportunity to attend all bible classes and studies, and they are encouraged to memorize scripture and participate in our discipleship program. We want to challenge our staff to focus on their doctrine, ministry, and spiritual growth.
