Camp staff outcomes align remarkably well with the top skills employers identify as most important for the 21st century workforce, including teamwork, communication skills, leadership, and problem solving. Being a member of a Christian summer camp staff builds vital skills needed for impactful careers and faithful lives.

On this episode, we’re breaking down 4 things camp builds in summer staff members that can make a significant difference in the vocations and careers.
