Frontier Lodge is dedicated to developing leadership potential and fostering Christian discipleship through providing various opportunities to volunteer at camp during the summer. Enjoy one of the most exciting places to invest a summer. It’s a time of incredible growth as together we experience the power of Christ firsthand. It’s also a time of countless changed lives as campers of all backgrounds will be introduced to the love of Christ, many for the very first time. Exciting programs, endless activities, powerful music, challenging speakers and wild adventure, all combined with the love of Christ in action. Imagine serving side by side on a dynamic team united in vision and committed to Christ and to each other. Imagine a summer that will make an eternal difference in young lives, and in your own.
There are many service opportunities for individuals and groups throughout the summer. Each of these service opportunities fall under one of the ministry areas listed below.
Our Kitchen Ministry happens right at the heart of camp – the kitchen! From preparing and serving 600+ meals a day, to doing the dishes, our Kitchen team is always buzzing. Our Kitchen Ministry gives you the opportunity to interact with all campers and staff while demonstrating the service of hospitality to those who pass through.
Work Crew Ministry
Our Work Crew takes care of our day-to-day washing and upkeep of our facilities as camp strives to reach an excellent level of cleanliness all summer long. Some of our work crew also maintains the grounds, as well as working on building repairs and upgrades.
Overnight Camp Ministry
Serving in our Overnight Camp Ministry, staff will have the opportunity to directly impact the lives of campers to helping them to feel a sense of love and belonging. Overnight staff are on the go 24/7, engaging in various aspects of camp as they lead and care for well-being of the campers.
Day Camp Ministry
Staff serving in our Day Camp Ministry can expect to be immersed in the French language all day long with campers and fellow staff members while sharing the grace and love of Christ with the children. Day Camp staff engage in various aspects of camp as hey lead and care for the well-being of the campers.
The reason we do camp is to share the Gospel. That means there's a special focus on our worship and teaching. Staff serving in this ministry will learn about the various aspects of putting together a service, making it relevant, as well as leading music and tech lessons to the campers.
Our Waterfront Ministry is becoming more involved than ever! While spending the summer by the lake, waterfront staff and lifeguards, are responsible for the daily organization of waterfront equipment, routine cleaning, as well as the overall organization and supervision of campers during activities and free time.
From registrations, to phone calls & emails, the nitty gritty documentation, and all the organization, it's the behind-the-scenes work that keeps camp running. Staff serving in our Office Ministry will see first-hand what it takes to make camp function effectively.
We’re constantly updating the way we do staff training to meet the needs of staff and campers. Our staff training is our way of equipping and preparing our staff for the ministry work that lies ahead of them. Our training includes at-home readings, group sessions at camp, and service components in various areas of camp. During these times, we will be going deeper into what it means to be a vessel for Christ and what that looks like in the camp context. We will have sessions that focus on how to share the Gospel with children, how to be intentional when interacting with campers and peers, and how to lead small groups. Other topics will include anxiety, child abuse prevention, and practical skills for being a FL staff member. *Although all staff are welcome to join our staff training, this will be required for some positions, and staff members at the discretion of the Director.
To apply for a staff position at Frontier Lodge, an application form must be completed online, preferably during our application period (January 4th – March 1st 2020).
