Join the Luther Heights Team

Camp staff positions are more than just a job, they are fun, meaningful, and almost always life-changing. Our staff have the opportunity to develop their personal faith, leadership skills, and natural gifts while engaging with campers of all ages; a life-renewing experience for all. Our staff are committed to welcoming, accepting, knowing, and celebrating each camper during their time at camp. Kids today need you—be the mentor you needed when you were a child! Being part of our team will be one of the best jobs you will ever have (your future self will thank you for saying YES to Luther Heights this summer).


  • Experience a community that offers space for personal growth, faith development, and connection to others who share in our core values.
  • Impact campers as they grow their faith, confidence, and abilities during their time at camp.
  • Transform your resume by being team players, creative thinkers, life-long learners, and great leaders, among other skills that future employers look for on a resume.
  • Foster new gifts with trainings such as Wilderness First Aid, Low Ropes, and Lifeguarding, while being paid to play - think tie-dye shirts and s’mores and silly songs.
  • Explore mountains and alpine lakes by hiking, whitewater rafting, canoeing, horseback riding, stargazing, and mountain biking (we could go on!)
  • Serve in a meaningful way, living out the mission of Luther Heights to share God’s love with all campers.

Summer Positions



18+ required

Being a Cabin Leader at a summer camp is a life-changing experience for many young adults. As a Cabin Leader at Luther Heights you have the opportunity to provide young people the best week of their entire year. By building comradery with and among your campers, leading impactful Bible studies, and giving them space to be goofy, the campers you serve will also learn lifelong lessons. Many of your campers will never forget you or the effect you have on them.


16+ years of age

Have you been through our LIT program, but are not yet old enough to be a cabin leader? LHBC knows that we have some amazing young people that have been long-time campers, love camp, and are ready to spend their whole summer with us at camp! Here are some key things about this role, as it will look different than in years past:

  • You'll be doing lots of behind-the-scenes things that help camp run, but this role will also be very involved in camper interaction. Here's a list of things that might be on your weekly schedule as a support staff person this summer: dishes, cleaning cabins, raking beloved Clive (our composting shower house), maintenance assistance as needed, making campfires, taking pictures for social media, dressing up/participating in all camp games, eating meals with cabins, leading worship, facilitating silly songs, helping with special interest/activity time, having FUN, being awesome, etc.
  • You will be the hands and feet directly involved with making this summer at camp amazing!
  • You will be on a team with other support staff for bigger projects, but will also have independent tasks that will be your responsibility.
