Camp Staff

Christian volunteers who confirm the Statement of Faith

Staff: Our staff is comprised of Christian volunteers who confirm the Statement of Faith, meet Pennsylvania’s official state standards for working with youth, are approved by the Camp Director and complete Camp Timberledge’s training requirements. All medical personnel maintain an official license in good standing for the practice of medicine.

Activities: While our commitment to youth emphasizes worship, Bible study and spiritual instruction in our summer camp program, we also feature interactive, age-appropriate activities designed to broaden the skills and confidence of campers. This may include archery, boating/canoeing/kayaking, crafts, drama, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, music, nature study, riflery, rock/wall climbing, swimming, and woodworking. Traditional sport facilities include baseball, basketball, floor hockey, softball, and volleyball. Cook-outs, camp fires, and camp outs are also an integral part of our program. And each year, we are committed to infrastructure upgrades in order to meet our campers’ need for continued discovery.

Join the Team: We are always looking to increase our camp staff.   Visit our Staff Jobs page (here) for more info.
