Our volunteer staff is the backbone of our ministry. Over the past 90+ years, volunteers have built and sustained Gitche Gumee Bible Camp. If you are interested in volunteering for the summer at Gitche Gumee Bible Camp please call us at 906-337-0527 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Positions include but are not limited to maintenance, grounds, food service, hospitality, housekeeping, laundry, and IT/AV.
We are accepting applications from qualified candidates for the 2022 camping season. Our positions fall into two main categories: Counselors and Support Staff. Pay ranges from $150-400 per week based on position and experience.

At Gitche Gumee Bible Camp, we have high expectations for our Counselors. You will be the main source of Biblical friendship, encouragement, and accountability for your campers. Although we have solid Bible speakers that will pour truth into their lives, you will be modeling this truth on a daily basis. We do not expect perfect people, so please don't be hesitant to apply. Counselors will facilitate discipleship and activities during our Youth Camp weeks. In 2022, these are structured as day camps.
June 13 - August 19
Service Workers play a vital role in our day-to-day operations at Gitche Gumee Bible Camp.
