Do it. If you have even an ounce of wanting to do it, do it Apply if you don’t know anyone or apply if you went to camp for 12 years. This place changes and shapes you in ways no other job can. You learn to love fiercly and work hard. And it’s easy to work hard because you fall in love with this place and the people in it. It knocks down your walls of vulnerability and builds you back up in the love of Jesus and the people around you. And not to mention, this job is SO MUCH FUN!” - Lauren

“I have NEVER regretted a summer spent at camp. Every sacrifice and challenge has been 110% worth it, and the relationships and growth I’ve found at camp over the years are irreplacable, precious gifts in my life that I wouldn’t trade for the world.” - Madison

You need camp way more than you think you do! Even as a retuners, I’ve grown so much, and the break from the real world is so needed.” - Margaret

As someone who had never stepped foot at Greystone before the first day of Orientation, I can easily say that working at Greystone was one of the best decisions I ever made! I made friends I will cherish forever, found community I didn’t think possible, and worked harder than I ever had before. It wasn’t an easy job, but it’s the best one I’ve ever had. You learn aspects of yourself you never knew about, and you see how wonderful God is. His grace abounds at Greystone, and I’m so thankful I got to experience the bubble!” - Ann
