Questions? Let's answer them.

Is there a deadline to apply? 

There isn't, but boy do we like it when people apply early! Interviewing begins as early as November, and we try to make as many staffing decisions as possible by March 1st.

Will you pay me? 

Absolutely, we will! Room and board are covered throughout your stay here, and there is a stipend for each position. Full summer positions start at $1500, Next Level starts at $500, and CITs start at $300. Those are our starting salaries, but they may be adjusted based on your prior experience or qualifications.

What if I have a date conflict? 

Ask us about it! We are able to be somewhat flexible when it comes to dates, but you should let us know. Don't rule out a summer of ministry because you have a wedding to attend. 

Do I need to know how to do all of that adventure stuff already?

No, but you should be willing to learn it. We don't expect you to come knowing everything - in fact, we do up to 3 weeks of training with our staff based on their position. We're looking for people who are teachable, energetic, and servant-minded. If you're willing to learn, we're willing to teach!
