Are you ready to make a BIG positive difference in people’s lives, with God’s help? Consider your calling to serve at Camp Ewalu. We have a truly top-notch, highly gifted, world-class summer youth ministry staff with a big variety of passions and fields of study. In addition to camp counselor roles, 15+ different positions are available, as well as Internships for many college majors.

For all positions, a sincere interest in working in a Christian community is essential. You must have faith in Jesus Christ that you are willing to share with youth and adults. Together we serve to help kids, visitors, and fellow staff members enjoy a rich and wonderful Christian fellowship, in the rhythm of daily camp life.

Camping experience is helpful but not necessary. All staff are provided with an action-packed, comprehensive two-week training.

2017 Summer Employment

Dates of Employment: May 28 – August 11

Ewalu offers an incredible variety of 20+ exciting summer youth programs and a fantastic staff to support you through this amazing summer! Our staff “return rate” which reflects a healthy community and morale, is one of the best around. This is a place to grow in your own leadership and personal sense of calling. At Ewalu, our program ensures that as a camp counselor, you will get to enjoy many different adventures each summer. This means you’re not limited to one program or age group for the season.

The first two weeks (May 28 – June 8) involve paid training in youth ministry, outdoor adventure skills, leadership, Bible studies, personal growth, and more. Some additional days may be required for leadership staff (coordinators). Weekends are generally time off, during which you are welcome to stay right at camp or return home. Staff members at Ewalu are given a “break week” in the middle of the summer, which begins Saturday, June 30; returning for Staff Renewal training on Friday, July 6. The remaining eight weeks make up the summer camp season.

Contact Ewalu soon about being part of what God is doing in the world by serving in a positive and transformational role in people’s lives!
