Should I Apply?
That is an interesting question. We often have summer staff who come here for the first time expecting six weeks of summer camp. If that is your reason for applying, I would reconsider. Working on staff is nothing like coming as a camper. You will be expected to give up six weeks of your summer, serving the campers, other staff, and Jesus. You will be pushed to the limit spiritually, physically, and mentally. You will have to work at jobs that you don't like, be patient with children who have pushed buttons that you didn't know you had, get up early, and go to bed late.
So, at this point, you are probably thinking..."You are really not selling me on this. Why would I ever want to be on Summer Staff at Penn-York Camp?" The answer is simple. Because you are called to it. If Jesus has called you to work here, then every hardship is worth it. You come out completely changed, closer to a God who loves you more than you ever realized. If your heart's only passion is pursuing Jesus, then working at Penn-York Camp will be an incredibly rewarding experience.
So I would encourage you. Before you apply. Pray and seek God's will. Ask Him to work in your heart and to change you into the person He has called you to. Ask Him to give you a heart of service towards Him and furthering His Kingdom. Then, if you are still willing to commit, click on the apply button. I am looking forward to working with you.
