a summer unlike any other


We’re not your average summer. TVR Christian Camp exists to see lives "Changed, By His Power and for His Glory".  If you are looking for a place to serve and for God to use your life to make an impact, we invite you to prayerfully consider serving this summer. 


You will have opportunities to:

  • Invest in the lives of over 1,300 campers through various roles to serve.

  • Participate in active ministry and learn better how God has equipped you to further His kingdom.

  • Develop individual spiritual gifts.

  • Grow in a relationship with Christ and in community with others.

  • Build life-long friends.

If you have prayerfully considered serving this summer and feel that God is leading you to serve, then download an application, complete it with your answers and have your three references returned either through paper or electronic. 

We highly recommend submitting applications as soon as possible. Once we have a full roster of qualified applicants, we will close the staff application process. 




Summer Staff

     Our summer staff consists each year of around 50-60 staff ages 17 and up.  It is truly one of the most rewarding and yet most challenging things you will ever do.  We have a one-word job description and that is "whatever". We ask that those feeling lead by the Lord to serve, truly come with a servants heart and willing to do what is asked.  Because ministry is always changing upon circumstances, flexibility and a great attitude are essential to serving.  You could be cleaning a room one minute and the next leading a small group or slicing tomatoes.  We ask that you come willing, humble, and expectant to see God move in our lives. 


Leaders in Training

     We also have a program for 15 and 16 year-old students called Leaders In Training (LIT). This program is limited to a few students each summer in order for them to gain some ministry experience. This program requires a commitment of staff training week plus three weeks of camp. On occasion a LIT staff's service may be extended on an individual evaluation basis by the leadership of TVR. The application for this program is the same.
