If you have any questions, please contact Jessie Fleming at jessie@ridgehaven.org.

Camp Counselors
This summer-long position is responsible for ministering to and caring for campers ranging from 3rd grade to high school, as well as supporting the ministry of Ridge Haven during summer conferences and retreats for adults. Counselors should have at least one year of college experience or be at the equivalent life stage. They must be willing to work long hours, have a strong desire for children and youth to know Christ, and set a consistent example of Christian faith. Past Ridge Haven counselors have set the bar high with their exemplary Christian walk and work ethic, and we want that tradition to continue this summer.

Camp Summer Interns (CSIs)
Camp Summer Interns are needed for the entire summer to serve campers and guests by assisting in the everyday operations of our camps, conferences, and retreats. Working alongside the camp counselors, CSIs must be willing to perform a variety of tasks -- everything from kitchen and grounds work to leading vigorous activities like the ropes courses, climbing wall, and field games -- for long hours while serving all age groups.

Although CSIs will work in various departments, they will be hired to specialize in one of the following:

  • Administrative Staff
  • Kitchen Staff
  • Lifeguarding
  • Maintenance Staff
  • Photographer
  • Program Staff
  • Ropes Course Leader
  • Technology Support
  • Housekeeping Staff
  • Worship Staff

Please indicate your preference(s) in the "positions applying for" section of the application. Those that shine at these duties might also be called upon to be assistant counselors. CSIs should be rising high school juniors, seniors, or college freshmen who are mature, hardworking, and committed Christians. For CSIs who are unable to stay the full summer, there is a “half summer” option available.

Event Staff
This summer-long position will serve Ridge Haven's weekend guests. They will coordinate and run weekend schedules. This is open to extremely relational college students with exemplary management and customer service skills.

Volunteer Camp Nurses
Ridge Haven is looking for volunteer nurses to serve at this year's summer camps, which run from June 2 - August 1. Volunteers can opt to serve anywhere from a week to the entire summer. They will be provided with lodging and meals as well as scholarships for up to two children to attend camp while they are serving with us. For those coming from out of state, we will also pay for any required North Carolina licenses if necessary. If you are a registered nurse or doctor and are interested in ministering to our campers for a week or more this summer, please contact Jessie Fleming at jessie@ridgehaven.org.
