At Heartland we have a passion for building relationships centered around Jesus Christ and sharing God’s unwavering love and grace with everyone who comes to camp. Through your experience at Heartland, you’ll grow deeper in your personal relationship with God, knowing that you are fully known and loved.

What more could you ask for, right? In a summer at Heartland, you’ll find more than silly camp songs, shaving cream wars, and an abundance of s’mores; you’ll find Christ-centered worship, a faith community immersed in God’s unfailing love, and an opportunity to change lives. This job isn’t easy, and it’s certainly not perfect, but it is the most fulfilling one you’ll ever have. You’re making a difference in these kids’ lives, and while you may not realize it at the time, they’re making a difference in yours, too.
While working here, you’ll explore relational ministry through worshiping and living intentionally with your fellow counselors. You’ll minister to a small group of campers, pouring into them while playing, praying, and just going through daily life together. You’ll cultivate a community for your campers unlike one that they could find anywhere else, and your joy and energy while leading them will be a bright light in their lives.
There’s no doubt working at Heartland will change your life. Yes, you’ll get paid, have housing and food, and have something to keep you busy all summer, but you’ll also gain practical professional skills to show off to your future employers. You’ll gain a lasting faith community, a stronger relationship with God, and practices that will help you continue to grow mentally and spiritually. You’ll find that you belong here.
God’s Kingdom is calling. Be a counselor at Heartland, and find your place in it.
