SUMMER STAFF APPLICATION
If you have already served a Life Teen or Edge Camp as a Summer Staff, please find the Service Crew Application
HERE.

Your Mission

First and foremost, you are answering Christ’s call to build up His Kingdom on earth. Throughout the summer, you will lead middle and/or high school teens closer to Christ through service, relationship, and prayer. You will build and develop practical, life-long ministry skills by gaining experience in project coordination, effective time management, and collaborative team building. As a missionary, you are also responding to Christ’s invitation to deepen your personal relationship with Him. You will be part of a mission community that together lives a structured and sacramental prayer life, supports one another in common mission, and holds each other accountable. You will experience ongoing spiritual formation and form relationships that will last a lifetime. 

Summer Staff is a six-week mission serving camp primarily as a relational minister trained in the facilitation of small group discussions and team- building activities. You will create and execute games, skits, and activities to create an environment for teens to encounter Christ. Your primary responsibility will be to be present and minister to the teens, core members, and youth minister from a particular parish while they are at camp for one week.

Mission Partners

A vital part of your mission this summer will be inviting people to join you as mission partners; they will support you spiritually and financially through prayers and donations. As a missionary, your first job will be to ask people to commit to praying for you; they can offer a daily Mass, rosary, chaplet, holy hour, or any other type of prayer. No mission is successful without prayer support; not only will camp be covered with intercession, but you will also be including individuals and families in the mission.

You will also need to gather financial support for this mission. Life Teen will help you by providing letter templates and donation cards as well as an online donation page that you can send to your extended family, friends, parishes, etc. in order to invite others to give a large or small donation. The majority of your mission partners should be outside of your immediate family—we want to include as many people as we can in this mission! Life Teen will match the amount you raise and you will receive a stipend at the end of your mission commitment, up to a total of $200($100 matched/ per week. Since this is truly a mission, God is calling you to bring your servant heart with complete trust in His divine providence.  

HOW TO APPLY:

1. Complete the application on the following pages. This includes providing basic information about yourself, answering several short answer questions and a 500-word essay. For references you must be able to provide contact information for three professional recommendations (cannot be family or friends). You also must attach a recent photo of yourself and a 60-90 second video introduction of who you are and why you want to be a summer missionary. The video does not need to be a major motion picture or be highly edited. We simply want to get to know you. This could include information on your family, your friends, your school, your hobbies, your ministry, or anything about you. There will be more information about the video in the photo and video section of the application. If you set up a username and account, you can save and return to the application at any time. Please do not submit until your application is entirely complete. It should take you anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour to complete. If you have any problems completing the application, please contact us.

2. An email will be sent to you confirming that we have receieved your application. If you don't get an email, please check that you have submitted your application. A member of our summer missionary selection team will contact you to set up a time for a one-hour phone interview. After the phone interview, we will contact you to let you know your status for the summer. All camp selections will be made by March 1, 2015 at the latest. 

3. Upon acceptance, you will be responsible for transportation to and from the airport closest to the camp where you will be serving. Your commitment begins on the first date listed on your session and goes through the last date. It is expected that you will serve the entirety of the session and remain with the camp team for the whole session. Life Teen will provide housing, linens, meals, and transportation during the session but extra spending money for weekend trips with your team is recommended.
