If you are looking for a significant way to serve God this summer, prayerfully consider working at Forest Springs. Serving is hard work, but has many rewards. The interaction with guests and fellow staff encourage spiritual growth and lasting friendships.
Summer Camps are divided into three parts:
Counselor Training Institute — An extensive two-week training program is designed to prepare counselors for their responsibilities. It is a balanced training/work experience with an emphasis on spiritual growth and development.
Resident Youth Camps — The four and 1/2 weeks of youth camps (for age 8 through 12th grade consecutively) will each start on a Sunday and end on the following Saturday. Each week will include about 200 campers.
There are six different family camp events. The pace is different from youth camps, but the opportunity to serve is the same.
Forest Springs also operates week-long canoe and kayak trips on Wisconsin's Flambeau and Brule rivers; rock climbing trips to Devil's Lake State Park or Interstate Park; and backpack trips in Upper Michigan's Porcupine Mountains and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
Each paid staff member, upon being hired, will be asked to submit 20 names of friends, family members, and churches who might be interested in supporting them financially. The support that the ministry receives for each staff will be put into an account to help pay for all of the salaried summer staff positions. Your help and involvement in this process is a significant blessing to the overall ministry of Forest Springs.
