Go Cru!

We're excited that so many of you are looking for something good to do with you summer.

We like to say "Camp isn't about the stuff; It's about the STAFF!" so we believe finding the right people is the most important thing to making a HUGE impact on children this summer.



What we're all about

Providing an environment where people can encounter God.
— The Mission of Forest Glen Camps

We want to make sure that you know what we're all about so you can decide if we're a good fit for you.

We are a faith-based organization, and we're looking for summer staff are stoked to spend the summer living in Christian community, serving Jesus by serving those who come to Forest Glen Springs. Most of our campers throughout the summer will be church groups, like youth and children groups. You'll spend the summer making the Springs a fun, safe, and beautiful natural environment where people can encounter God. Also, for four weeks we'll provide our own activities & curriculum for a program that invests in young men called Camp Wilderness Ridge.

Calling Godly men!

This summer will be the first year for Camp Wilderness Ridge's Summer Camp programs for young men to be hosted at Forest Glen Springs. Camp Wilderness Ridge exists to change the world through the leadership of REAL men. The program is for boys age 7-17, and is focused on teaching young men what it means to be a servant-leader through a model of Biblical manhood. We are looking for the right college-age men to help lead these programs as Counselors, Program Director, SALT Director, and Chaplain.

The Wilderness Ridge program lasts for 4 weeks of the summer, but you can still work in other roles like the Program Staff for the remainder of the season.
