2021 SUMMER STAFF SCHEDULE

At Frontier Camp, we understand the demands on your time in the summers. We provide multiple options in our work sessions for you to come serve with us.

General Information

  • Session Staff positions – Frontier Camp offers the ability to serve for at least 5 weeks of camp, or roughly half the summer. There are 2 Sessions from which to choose, offering the flexibility in your summer schedule to also take summer classes or go on mission or family trips. You can also apply to work both Sessions, if desired. Staff (except for Work Crew) will be required to attend Staff Training Week(s) prior to the first camp week of your Session. For more information regarding our camp Sessions, please email Dusty Stone at [email protected].
