JOIN THE CAMP BLUESKY TEAM!

Spend 2-10 weeks from May to August serving on Camp BlueSky's seasonal team, investing in the lives of kids and teens through adventure, relationship, and discipleship.

Applications are OPEN for the 2021 camp season! 

Adventure's Calling!

Every year from late May through early August, our camp season, an amazing group of college and university students join our staff at Camp BlueSky, a unique adventure camp in Nairobi, Kenya, for 7 to 18-year-olds.

BlueSky campers represent dozens of nationalities and many backgrounds. Some have grown up in the church while others are from various faith backgrounds. Throughout the six sessions of camp, the Camp BlueSky team usually serves over 800 campers, with an average of 130 campers each week!

Our counselors and program aids are an integral part of the ministry of Camp BlueSky - whether it's by teaching a craft, cheering campers up the rock wall, performing a crazy skit, sharing during devotion times, or simply being an older friend in whom to confide. Throughout it all, our team has the opportunity to meet campers where they are - spiritually, emotionally, relationally - and point them to Jesus through word and deed.

When camp is not in session during the camp season, Camp BlueSky staff are invited to engage in other kinds of adventures and learning opportunities, including:

  • Team training, debrief and rest.

  • Exploring some of the outdoor adventures Kenya has to offer through activities like rock climbing and camping. 

  • Observing and learning about other ministries in the Nairobi area according to staff members' interests.

Whether staff members have grown up in Nairobi or it is their first time outside their home country, these weeks give our staff an opportunity to grow as a team and expand their vision of what it looks like to be a part of Christ's Kingdom work.  The camp season as a whole provides an excellent introduction to cross-cultural ministry as our staff members interact with many nationalities (both on their own team and among their campers) and multiple types of ministry. Our goal for each staff member is that they grow in servant leadership, cultural humility, and faith in order to become active and healthy members of the Global Church. 

Positions

We want our campers to be led by a staff of young adults who are committed followers of Jesus, approach life with an adventurous spirit, and are eager to nurture campers and create an environment of love, acceptance, and growth. 

Camp Counselor:

Camp Counselors are responsible for the overall supervision of campers with the aim of providing a healthy, safe, and fun camp environment and experience in which Christ’s love is demonstrated and shared.

Program Aid:

Each will have his or her own primary responsibilities, as well as contributing to the overall culture and experience of camp with Gospel-centered leadership.

Cost

Camp BlueSky is a non-profit organization, so any fees from our campers go directly back into the cost of operations and programs. Therefore, our ministry staff - including seasonal staff - are required to raise and/or contribute the finances needed to cover expenses for their time serving with us. We also ask each staff member to gather a team of people to pray for them and our whole team for the duration of the camp season.

 

The total financial amount needed from each staff member will vary based on differences in position, travel costs, and length of service. We will provide resources, coaching, and accountability to help our staff with this aspect of serving with our ministry. Please see position descriptions or email us for an estimate or if you have any questions about this.

 

We understand that this is a big commitment and investment, but we are equally confident that the experience you gain and the impact you make as you serve, explore, learn, and lead with Camp BlueSky are much more than an equal return!
