Each summer, over 250 volunteers make up the majority of Beacon's cooks, cabin leaders and program staff. These volunteers come and go each week as they serve in various camp sessions. By comparison, our "summer staff" stay for the whole summer, serving as the maintenance team and lifeguards every day so that our session volunteers are able to focus on the most important job at camp: teaching and demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ to each camper who joins us each week.
Most of these summer staff give up 10 or more weeks of their summers. Frequently, this team is compromised of students who are returning to university studies in the fall. While these students come to Beacon with the knowledge that they are not guaranteed an income, Friends of Beacon provides an honorarium to them at the end of the summer to thank them for their service. By supporting the Summer Staff Fund, you allow us to find excellent, experienced staff who are able to commit to Beacon's rigorous schedule
Aurora has increased her involvement at Beacon ever since participating in FLIGHT 2017, moving into her role on the Lifeguard/Maintenance team this summer. We are thankful to our dear friends at Camp Crossroads for being willing to let her join us this summer!
Ben has experienced Beacon through Skills Camp and the Family Day Festival, and now we’re thrilled that he has chosen to expand his Beacon horizons by serving on the Lifeguard/Maintenance team!
Her camp name is “Steps” because she took her first steps at Beacon…and Bethany is about to take quite a few more steps around camp as a busy member of the Lifeguard/Maintenance team this summer!
You can’t miss this bundle of positivity and enthusiasm! Chris is a super handy guy with a passion for music. He looks forward to playing his part on the Lifeguard/Maintenance team!
Emma will be spending the summer at Beacon following the completion of her first year of university studies. As a member of the Lifeguard/Maintenance team, you can expect to see her with anything from a lifeguard whistle to a mop and bucket in hand… or a good book or her violin, if it’s break time!
Having already served at camp as a cabin leader, director’s aide, kitchen staff, weekend lifeguard, music leader and more, it seems only fitting that Marlies put her multi-Beacon-skills into practice in a new way this summer as a part of the Lifeguard/Maintenance team!
Returning for a second year of summer staff, Matt will look forward to broadening his areas of knowledge and skill even more as a member of the Maintenance team. He will also have to take his stealth skills to a new level, as his penchant for secret ongoing practical jokes was uncovered last summer and everyone will be ready for him this year!
Past Summer Staff
We gratefully acknowledge the commitment and service of past summer staff teams, who gave their time and energy so that God would get glory through the ministry of Beacon Bible Camp.
