A meeting Place with God! Home of the funnest fun!

NOTE: These job descriptions accurately lay out the duties required in each of the positions mentioned.  However, working in camping ministry is a very fluid occupation. If you are hired, you are first and foremost a member of Camp Lebanon staff.  That means that you may need to pitch in and work in an area that is not the one for which you are specifically hired.  (Example: if you are a program team member and we have a large camp week, you may be put in counseling).
