SUMMER 2023

Summer Staff

Volunteer Opportunities

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 gitchegumeecamp@gmail.com. Positions include but are not limited to maintenance, grounds, food service, hospitality, housekeeping, laundry, and IT/AV.  

Paid Opportunities

We are accepting applications from qualified candidates for the 2023 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.

Counselors

June 19 - July 7

(continue through August 18 if you opt to stay as a Service Worker)

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. 

Support Staff

June 19 - August 18

Service Workers play a vital role in our day-to-day operations at Gitche Gumee Bible Camp. These positions will be determined by the skill and preference of the individual, the need of GGBC, and the availability of the applicant. These positions generally fit into these roles: grounds, maintenance, food service, and nursery. Some roles will overlap as needs require. 

Other Positions

Cook/Food Service: June 8 - August 18 (Flexible Weeks)

Laundry Tech: June 16 - August 18

Certified Lifeguard: June 19 - July 7

Certified Nurse: June 16 - July 7

Work Week

May 7-13, and May 14-20

Each spring we offer 2 great weeks for our volunteers to come and be a part of the preparation for our camping season. Volunteers may wish to arrive Sunday night of May 7 or May 14. Housing and meals provided.  

Projects for May 2023:

  • Remodeling Nursery
