Youth throughout the Twin Cities metro area are invited to apply to be part of the youth leadership team for Building Beloved Community; South Minneapolis Day Camp 2023—a progressive, ecumenical day camp experience offering faith formation in a fun, safe, Christ-centered and relational setting. Our theme this year is “Building Beloved Community.”
As in past years, we hope to have a strong youth leadership team of at least 12 youth to help make the camp meaningful, successful, and fun!
What is youth leadership staff?
Youth leaders will be a vital part of day camp. They will:
Provide leadership for a specific group of campers throughout the week
Build community among campers
Lead activities as we discover what your gifts and skills are
Show respect towards all campers
Be a positive role model for the campers
Youth who are entering 9th grade in the fall of 2023, in high school, or graduating high school this spring are eligible to apply.
Youth must be available for all of day camp: June 20-23, from 8:30am—4:30pm. Slight exceptions may be allowed.
Youth must be available for a training before camp begins. The training will be Sunday, June 18 from 5 - 7 pm at Bethel. If you have a conflict, we may be able to accommodate.
Youth will be paid $150 for their work at day camp. We intend that the money go towards a church-related activity—for example, towards a camp experience or youth trip. But that is not required.
