The heart of our ministry is building a daily partnership and relationship with the youth. Three counselor/teachers live with each group of 10 campers in a primitive campsite setting. Through a group process of goal setting and problem solving, we help youth confront and resolve past issues and current life conflicts.

They should welcome challenges and be no stranger to hard work. Other necessary qualities include a love for the outdoors and adventure, enjoying working with others to get things done, excellent physical health, strong leadership abilities, a willingness to learn and grow, and a positive servant attitude. They should possess strong communication and relational skills and self-initiative.

Salary plus benefits including housing/utilities, medical/dental insurance, paid vacation and retirement program. The positions can also be in conjunction with the NAMB US/C2 missions program.
