Do you love God?

Do you enjoy working with children?

Then how about considering volunteering a week or more at Camp Good News?

Here is what some counselor alumni have to say:

I was so blessed that God let me be a counselor at Camp Good News. I was scared of counseling because I’d never done it before, but I loved it! God taught me so much about how to love kids, about patience, and about trust in Him. On top of growing spiritually, I had a great time! I really enjoyed spending time with the kids and the other counselors and getting to know them better, and I had fun running around planning things for the kids…then actually doing them. I’m hoping to go back soon. What an amazing experience.” – Amy D.

“Even though I grew up in a Christian home, went to church, revivals, and other youth camps. I’ve never felt God so strongly like I have at Camp Good News. As soon as you get to camp and get out of the car it’s just a completely different atmosphere. Lives are changed forever when you come to Camp Good News. That is especially true for me. I started going to camp when I was 9 years old and I put my faith and Trust in Jesus at camp when I was 13 years old and my life has never been the same since. I had said the “sinners prayer” many times before but all that was to me was just words and I didn’t understand what I was doing. It was just words I repeated. But then sitting in chapel at camp one summer I realized that it’s about believing in Jesus and what He did for me and not what I can do to earn salvation, because I can’t. Camp Good News means the world to me, it truly feels like home. Not only to me but so many other.  I choose to work here because I want boys and girls to really know Jesus and His great love for them. I want them to know that no matter what their life may be like outside of camp that when they come here they’re are loved, cared for, and that they matter.” – Aaron S.

“Working at Camp Good News is unlike anything else I have ever experienced! The campers arrive on the first day and some are happy to be there, others are more reluctant, but by Friday, none of them want to leave! I love getting the opportunity to show campers from God’s word how our Heavenly Father will take care of them if they only surrender their lives to Him. I also love that for the entire summer, my job description is playing exhausting games, creating amazing crafts, memorizing scripture, and planting the Word of Life in the lives of the next generation.” – Nick B.

All Camp Good News Volunteers and Employees undergo Background Screening and receive training before working with campers.
