We Want to Help You get the Best Opportunity to Serve at a Lutheran Summer Camp

Participating camps will employ over 500 students this coming summer. The time of service will vary. Please check each camp’s information to see an exact date. All summer staff receive free meals and lodging for the duration of their employment.

We want to help you work at a Lutheran camp this summer! This year 24 NLOMA Partner Camps are participating in a joint effort to recruit and hire summer staff workers.

The camps pool resources to conduct interviews and receive applications from applicants from across the country. Through this process you will have the opportunity to select your camp and job preferences. Please note that applications are now being accepted, however camps will not begin offering positions until late February.
