Are you are seeking out ways to strengthen your faith this summer? Do you want a summer job that is meaningful? One that will leave a lasting imprint on the life of a child that needs someone to believe in them? If so, read on. If you are over the age of 18 and can commit four to six weeks of your summer beginning June 22, we may have a summer job for you!
Kids need camp! Many kids are faced with social, emotional, or financial challenges in today’s world. We want to give them the best summer of their lives; a chance to be a child again if only for a week – and we need your help!
We are a collaboration of Catholic camps located near Carsonville, Michigan. Located along the beautiful Lake Huron shoreline on the East side of the state, we operate three camp locations providing girls, boys, and co-ed programs: CYO Girls Camp, Camp Ozanam, and CYO Boys Camp.
We offer a variety of traditional camp activities, such as archery, boating, swimming, horseback riding, arts & crafts, sports & games, teambuilding initiatives, rock wall climbing, high ropes, off-site trips, and more!
All of these activities, along with support and encouragement from caring role models helps to build a child’s self-esteem, independence, the ability to care for others, and gives them hope.
Why should you work at Camps Connect this summer? Hear what our summer staff have said about their experience…
“I've been at camp for three years, but this summer was by far the best! Not only did I get to teach kids about God, but we had a PHENOMENAL staff at all the camps this year, every staff member truly cared about the well-being for the kids as well as each other. This will be a Summer I always remember.”
– Trevor, 2014
“Camp was a life changing experience for me. I was in a bad place in life. I had many disappointments and challenges I was facing. I thought I was going there to help kids, but camp helped me! Being with the kids gave me hope again. It helped me to see that even though life may not be going your way there is still a reason to be happy and joyful not matter what your circumstances. I will always keep in touch with the awesome people I met. They became like family.” - Emily, 2014
Working for Camps Connect this summer will allow you to be a superhero in the eyes of the children in your care. In addition, you’ll get to spread the Word of God in a beautiful natural setting filled with opportunities to grow as a person and a leader.
