Interested in Volunteering?




Caring staff has been one of the greatest assets to our ministry.  It is the love of volunteers for the campers that makes our camps unique.  Encounter is fully run by volunteers.  So, if you are a committed Christian, are actively involved in a local church, have a heart for kids and would like to join us in this ministry of introducing children to Jesus, we would love to have you join our team of volunteers!  If you are interested, please follow the link for our online application.
