Your Official Invite to the

Summer of a Lifetime!


  • Arden, NC
    Lutheridge

    Being part of the Lutheridge staff is being a part of a dedicated team. Staff life is filled with opportunities for Christian ministry, fellowship, growth, self-giving and support. A family spirit and style of life characterized by respect, acceptance, honesty and love is the foundation upon which staff relationships are built. The strength and inspiration for this lifestyle is a common faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Staff members are expected at all times to set an example in Christian living for guests, campers, and each other, in language, dress, behavior and attitude. The community is rooted in forgiveness and joy experienced through serving, worshiping, praying and learning together. Staff should take advantage of frequent opportunities for these experiences, both for renewal and growth of the individual and to strengthen and renew community life.

    New staff are required to furnish 3 references. Please provide the reference form link so they can complete an online reference for you.

    Your Official Invite to the Summer of a Lifetime!

    Do you have a passion for working with young people? Do you want to share your faith and inspire others to explore their own? Do you have a sense of adventure and like to try new things? Well, Luther Springs Retreat Center and Camp in Florida is where you’ll want to be this summer!

    We are looking for 20-25 highly motivated and creative young adults, who will serve as summer camp counselors, team leaders, and support staff. You will be mentoring and working with young people from Kindergarten through twelfth grade in both residential and day camp settings throughout the state. It is a unique opportunity for you to experience a variety of Florida’s environments, from Jacksonville to South Florida and every place in between.

    Camp ministry provides young people with the safe, caring atmosphere they need to understand their relationship to God, God’s people, and God’s world. A summer at camp is your opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those children, build important career skills, and make life-long friends, while growing in your own faith.

    Our summer season begins May 20 with paid staff training. Leadership Staff have an additional training session beginning one week prior to the full staff team and Returning Staff come a little early to help get ready, on May 17. The last week of camp ends July 27, 2019, which gives us time for wrap up, clean up, evaluation, and celebration. We provide a salary, plus room and board. Our base location is Luther Springs Camp and Retreat Center outside Gainesville.

    Please fill out the job application and reference forms. Complete the application as soon as possible. Give the reference forms to three people who are not peers or family members to be completed and returned to us. Phone, Zoom, or face-to-face interviews will be arranged upon receipt of the application.

    Applications and reference forms can be sent to Sue Mendenhall, ELCA Deacon, Luther Springs Program Director: suem@fbsynod.org. Please feel free to contact me with questions at that email or by phone at 727-415-9887.

    We are looking for 6-8 enthusiastic, responsible, creative, caring and fun young adults to serve as summer camp counselors and support staff at Lutheranch, a 500+ acre Christian retreat center located an hour west of Atlanta, near Tallapoosa, GA.

    In 2019, we are offering three weeks of youth summer camp for children in grades 3-12 and one week of family camp for campers of all ages. Summer staff will need to be available for the entire summer camp period, from the first day of staff training that begins May 29, through the last day of summer camp on July 12. Staff will have the option of staying an additional (paid) week after camp is done to help with various projects around the site, prepare for upcoming fall retreats and plan for next summer’s camp activities. We will also have some fun team activities to celebrate a successful camp season.

    Summer staff are paid a flat weekly rate with room and board provided at no additional cost. All staff are required to attend two and a half weeks of paid training, one week at Lutheranch and the remaining time at Lutheridge, our sister camp located near Asheville, NC.
