Summer Staff Positions
Group counselors are the most awesome, fun & creative people at Camp Sonshine. They are responsible for leading a group of 10 – 12 campers through the action-packed camp day. This includes but is not limited to: go-karts, archery, devotions, teaching your campers about Jesus, singing and dancing, crafts, swimming, letting your campers win a race down the slip n slide, tying shoes, filling water bottles, teaching them about service, feeding our mini-horse Sassy, building a fort, cooking over a fire, and whatever your creative heart desires (within reasonable safety boundaries).
Camp Sonshine places a huge emphasis on safety and we need lifeguards to keep our swimmers safe in one of everyone’s favorite places in the world – the pool! Lifeguards are responsible for daily pool maintenance and providing a fun and safe place for campers to have fun! Lifeguards may be hired in additional capacities such as group counselor roles or support staff.
The Wilderness Ranger has great power to help kids experience nature and the God who created it through teachable moments and creative, practical lessons. Create a world of imagination and wonder for all who enter The Woods.
Health Care Supervisor
This is a vital role in helping campers and staff members feel cared for. Serve Camp Sonshine by checking in and distributing medications, providing First Aid, updating health logs and ultimately providing a friendly face to all – which could make all the difference.
Camp Sonshine has had a number of summer staff receive college credit during their time at Camp Sonshine. Contact us about how we can partner with your educational institution.
Summer Volunteer Positions
This is a volunteer position for high school students entering 10th – 12th grade or anyone who is not able to commit to a half or full summer contract. Assistant Counselors fulfill a variety of vitally important roles within camp, from helping with camper groups, leading scheduled activities, and working behind the scenes to help ensure campers are having the best experience possible. ACs are able to volunteer for one or more of the summer sessions that fit their schedule but must commit to the entire week.
