APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER STAFF 2024OPENING NOV 1, 2023!
Each year, FLBC looks to assemble a team of dedicated, talented, wonderful summer staff. Working at FLBC is much more than just a summer job. Our staff have an opportunity to develop their gifts, leadership skills, and faith while growing with others in a close Christian community. Summer staff experience at camp can also be a huge opportunity to develop professional skills that will be attractive to future employers. All this takes place in the mountains of northwest Montana, one of the most beautiful and ecologically intact places in the United States. Being a Summer Staff member at Flathead Lutheran Bible Camp could prove to be one of the most important and rewarding experiences of your life!
If you want to learn more about working at FLBC before beginning the application, we would be glad to talk to you! Please reach out to Program Director, Karen, at email@example.com to find a time to connect.
FAQ’s about working at Camp
Have other questions? Let’s chat!
Starting pay is $400 per week + room and board! If you are a returning staff to FLBC, or have worked at another camp, you’ll earn an additional $10/week (i.e., second summer on staff = $410/week, 5th summer on staff = $440)
Additional incentives are available for lifeguards, turning in all employment paperwork early, fulfilling the full extended summer contract, and some help with transportation!
Each staff’s compensation package will be outlined in their contract!
Well, every day at camp might look different and every week of your summer might be different!
We offer a variety of programs, so you might find yourself on a day camp one week, and leading a cabin group on-site the next (see a sample schedule of our traditional on-site schedule on this page).
Our two week staff orientation covers what you need to know to work each of these programs; many of our off-site adventure trips will have additional training so that staff have specific skills for those programs (read: Sailing!).
Every staff person works 1 weekend in the summer, helping to provide programming and hospitality to the groups that are on retreat over the weekend.
Besides the work weekend, staff are off from Friday evening (campers leave, we turn camp around for the weekend, and have a staff meeting) to 9am Sunday morning (we begin with a staff meeting, have brunch and morning worship, then get ready for the new week!). It’s your time to nap, do laundry (unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to offer on-site laundry facilities; there are great laundromats in town and we can help figure it out if getting to town is an issue; staff who are working the weekend have the ability to do laundry on-site that weekend), explore the beauty of Northwest Montana, go to Target, or whatever it is you need to do to take care of yourself and get ready for the next week!
Our regular summer programming begins June 18th and ends August 4th (7 weeks of camp sessions). We continue to provide summer camp programs in a different way after, partnering with organizations such as the Montana Youth Diabetes Alliance and Intermountain Residential Home, where staff provide program and hospitality but do not stay in cabins with the campers. We would love to offer you a contract extension to work these 2 weeks through August 18th if your schedule allows; you would receive your regular weekly compensation and a $1,000 bonus if you worked the whole summer.
Nope! We ask that you be willing to share God’s love with everyone at camp, and be a part of a Christian community the affirms Lutheran values. During staff orientation, we’ll teach you how to lead an engaging Bible Study and worship/campfire, as well as have some Lutheran 101 conversations. And of course, the conversations and questions about God and faith are continued throughout the summer as we lead campers through their own faith journeys and accompany one another on ours.
Preference is given to applicants who can work at camp for the entire summer. However, we encourage you to apply if you are only available for part of the summer. We would love to talk with you about the possibility of working the first half (start date: June 4th ) or second half (start date: July 8 through end of summer), if you cannot work an entire summer season.
Yes! We can work with you to meet your school’s requirements in pretty much any field.
