If you have any questions, please contact Jessie Fleming at

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. CSIs should be rising high school juniors, seniors, or college freshmen who are mature, hardworking, and committed Christians.

Health-Care Assistant
The Health-Care Assistant will work with Ridge Haven's Registered Nurse (RN) to provide first-aid to campers and staff and to monitor health and sanitation procedures throughout camp. The Health-Care Assistant makes sure medications are safeguarded and administered, and keeps accurate records. This person needs to be a college student or older, preferably with health-care administration experience.
