“I can't recommend Camp Bear Creek enough! God has brought so much joy and so many happy memories into my life through my time in this place. The daily activities and games are always so much fun, but nothing can compare to the deep friendships and genuine community I've found. Working at Camp Bear Creek gave me so many amazing experiences and strengthened my ability to be a leader. This experience is invaluable for anyone pursuing a career in education or childcare, and so many of the skills you build will translate to any field. My time at camp has been so influential to my identity as a Christian as well. I would be hard-pressed to recall another time in my life when my faith has been so thoroughly examined, tried, and, in the end, deeply strengthened. If you are thinking about working at Camp Bear Creek, I would highly recommend it. It's sure to be an unforgettable experience!”
