“This summer changed my life.”
“Why can’t we just do this all year round?”
“Best summer ever.”
These are common phrases uttered by Summer Staff at the end their employment here at Covenant Pines. My personal favorite came from a first-year counselor on his last day:
“This is what a true Christian Community looks like. This is what I want when I go back to College.”
There is something truly miraculous about working a summer at Covenant Pines. You experience the kind of community that Luke describes as “one in heart and mind.”1 Everyone on staff, from counselor to maintenance worker, is motivated by a single purpose: to help campers experience the love of Christ. The staff supports each other, motivates each other, and holds each other accountable. In this kind of community, miracles happen on a daily basis.
If you work at CPBC this summer, you will walk alongside young people on their spiritual path. You will witness youth making eternally significant decisions.You will make life-long friends. You will grow in your faith. You will put paint on your face several times a day. You will play ridiculous games. You will lose your voice every week. You will be sweaty and exhausted. At the end of every week, your bones will ache and your muscles will be sore, but that won’t stop you from staying up late and traveling to Duluth with your new best friends. Not a single person walks away from their twelve-week stint unchanged.
