Don't waste your summer

Summer goes by fast, so don't waste it! If you’re a college or high school student who’s interested in investing in people through Christian camping, then Camp Judson would love to hear from you! Camp Judson offers both paid and unpaid positions, so you can work here full-time or volunteer for a week or two. Either way, you'll profit! Working at Camp Judson gives you the chance to serve others and make a difference in the lives of children, teens and adults who attend our youth, family and adult camps throughout the summer. 


We’re not only committed to helping you develop valuable leadership skills while you’re here, but we also want to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus. The people you work with at camp could become lifelong friends!
