Volunteering at HCC is a great ministry opportunity. We are looking for people who love God and want to minister to teens and children. Our camp has a strong spiritual emphasis. We encourage campers in their personal walk with God through powerful praise & worship, exciting Bible classes, and amazing night services. Their days are filled with fun activities such as: go karts, paintball, creative workshops, big & wild games, swimming, archery, and more. Volunteers will have the opportunity to help in several areas according to their talents, abilities, and willingness to serve.
We have found, time after time, that God’s heart is not only to minister to the children and teens, but also to the workers. Many who have worked at HCC have had their lives touched dramatically by the Lord.
If you are interested in volunteering at HCC this summer then please fill out an application for the area in which you would like to help. Applications are very important for us to be able to plan for our summer staff. We also do background checks and call all references for the safety of our campers.
Volunteer Positions Available
Entire Camp Commitment
Children and Teen Bunk Leaders
Bunk Leaders are responsible for 5 to 9 campers each camp. They eat, sleep, play, have devotions, go to services and pray with them every day. Bunk Leaders have a demanding schedule but find it very rewarding. This position requires someone who loves children or teens, is spiritually and emotionally stable, and a good Christian role model. Bunk Leaders have a HUGE impact on the lives of the campers. This position offers a great ministry experience.
Musicians, singers, sound technicians, and media specialists are needed for our night services. This position is for those who love to worship God and are looking for a opportunity to impact youth. This commitment may require an audition, independent practice, and a rehearsal prior to the camp week. If you have experience in any of these areas, we invite you to
come share your talent and be a blessing.
One Day or More Camp Commitment
Bible Teachers and night service speakers
We need teachers who love God’s Word and like to creatively teach children and teens. Bible classes take place in the morning. Subjects and curriculum are provided. When possible we want to offer night services to those that feel called to preach.
Creative Workshop Leaders
Each camper picks a workshop class during camp. They attend the same workshop class for three days with each class lasting 45 minutes. The talent of our volunteers determines the type of workshop classes we can offer. Classes we have offered in the past include: Music, Drama, Dance, Puppets, Arts & Crafts, Metal Forging, Sign Language, woodworking and Photography.
Help prepare, serve, and clean up after meals. The kitchen is a fun place to volunteer and many people love the interaction with other adults and with the campers. Kitchen staff can volunteer for one shift, one day, or an entire camp.
Maintenance and Go Karts
Are you interested in small machines or would you enjoy running the Go Kart track? Go Karts need maintenance and we need helpers! If you are good at fixing things please consider helping for a day or an entire camp. We also need people that can mow lawns. Maintenance staff can volunteer for one day or an entire camp.
Office & Janitorial
If you have a good camera and a good eye we can use help taking pictures for future promotions.
Matthew 10:42 – And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward.
I have seen lives changed
From the start when you get there, it feels like a normal camp. Sleeping in bunk houses and anticipating a lot of fun activities. What you don't know upon arrival is the overwhelming presence of God you will find throughout the entire camp and time spent there. You will likely pull up and feel a difference, but just thinking nothing of it. But let me tell you. I have seen lives changed and people delivered at this camp. I see God move every single time I am there and there is no question that the staff experience it just as much as the campers. And last but not least, the food is made with such love that you are sure to have a time with a happy belly. From experiencing God in deeper ways to fun and amazing food. There is no other camp I would recommend more for kids, pre-teens and teens wanting to experience God.
