If you love Jesus and love high school students, we would love to have you on our team, leading our students through an incredible week of camp on Lake Shasta! This is an engaging, exciting, exhausting, and rewarding ministry opportunity. You will be living on a houseboat, serving as a small group leader and mentor to a group of about 14 students, and helping those students take one step closer to Jesus. If you can join us from Monday June 3rd to Saturday June 8th, please register and apply through the steps below. Every adult leader will need to be cleared through a full background check / "live scan" fingerprinting process as well. Thanks for your willingness to serve our students in this ministry!

Trip Updates: 
Leader Requirements: 
We generally need help in recruiting additional leaders, particularly female leaders, as we often struggle to have enough. However, since we have high needs, but must also adhere to strict numbers on each boat (which is also determined by how many boats for each gender we end up needing), we will notify you if our volunteer slots fill up, or we end up with different needs.
Trip Questions / Paperwork: 
Student Ministries’ Admin., Amy McKelligan, will help make sure we have all of your required paperwork. Any questions can be directed to Amy at or 925.855.1367, ext. 291.
Thanks again for all of the ways you make this a safe and incredible adventure for the students.
