Want to Work at Camp This Summer?
The application for Summer Staff 2021 is OPEN! Read below for more details!
Summer 2019 served as our very first Summer Camp season at Annunciation Heights, and we couldn’t be more thrilled by how it went! With nearly 300 campers joining us last summer, we are excited to continue to grow – even coming out of a year overshadowed by the pandemic! We hire approximately 35-40 college students and young adults in various roles to serve for six weeks of Summer Camp and at least two family camps. Prior to our first session of Summer Camp, staffers will participate in over two weeks of training, rooting themselves in prayer, in the skills necessary to be a counselor, and in healthy and fun community life!

Interview and job offers for summer staff positions at Annunciation Heights are fully conditional on the Summer 2021 season happening as planned! Should COVID-19 interfere with camp operations, there may be a need to reduce/let go of staff, particularly in the event that we are not able to run programming. That said, we are full of hope and trust that the good God will allow camp to run as normal! As such, we are currently hiring a full summer staff crew, and we are excited to move forward with plans for an awesome, exciting summer for hundreds of youth and families here in the mountains!
