Why join us?
We at Camp Mercy want to do something radical: have a summer job that intentionally makes us saints. Counselors will be guaranteed a fun and exciting summer, learning what it means to be a missionary for the Catholic Church right in their own backyard. We expect counselors to approach the summer with a desire to give their summer to God, to lead others to Christ while growing in their own knowledge and love of Christ and the Catholic Church's teachings, and to serve as a positive Catholic role model for the children who will be in their care.
Camp Counselors are committed to the whole Camp Mercy experience- we begin our days in prayer with daily Mass and Eucharistic Adoration, we serve the children in our classes, and then we come back together each afternoon to share a meal and learn more about the faith through amazing speakers.
Students entering grades 8-12 in the fall are eligible to volunteer at Camp Mercy.
Volunteers must be willing and able to commit to the hours of 7:00am – 3pm for the full week during which they would like to volunteer.
Volunteers will follow the same schedule as the instructors: 7am daily Mass & Eucharistic Adoration, opening prayer in the gym, class, group lunch, and our theology speakers. Volunteers must be agreeable to participating in the full experience, beginning with daily Mass and ending with our theology talks/discussions. If desired, and with approval, volunteers may elect to stay longer than 3:00pm to help with after care.
Volunteering will be done on a week-by-week basis. At the end of every week, volunteers will be evaluated by their mentor instructors and the Program Director/Assistant Directors. Volunteers with positive evaluations will be invited back.
