Staff Applications for Summer Camp 2018

If you are considering joining the Camp Marengo Junior Staff, please read though all the following information carefully and prayerfully.

As a Christian Camp, Camp Marengo strives to show God’s love to campers and counselors in a natural setting and through Christian examples. Although we realize each of us are at various points in our Christian journey, we expect all prospective staff to have made a commitment to Christ and to exemplify that decision in their day-to-day life at camp. An important part of our ministry is sharing Jesus Christ with the campers.

The life of Camp Marengo is to serve others as Jesus served, so that lives are changed, and glory is given to God.

Serving on the Camp Marengo Staff is more than just summer employment,
