    What are the top four reasons you should serve at Camp Caroline this summer?

    1. God's Call. Often when speaking with people serving in ministry, we hear them express that God called or nudged them into ministry. If you feel like this is you, don't only hear the call, but act on it! God has something great in store for you and the only way you will experience it is if you answer that call with a resounding "YES!".
    2. Spiritual Challenge. While working at Camp Caroline, God will teach you through many vessels (teammates, leaders, children, nature). Those lessons have the potential to change your life's trajectory in significant ways. Take the challenge and experience the growth.
    3. Training for Life and Ministry. Camp Caroline is dedicated to training godly leaders - young men and women who will have a godly influence on the world around them. We strive to prepare our staff to leave Camp Caroline ready to enter whatever God has in store for them next. We view a summer at Camp Caroline as a training ground for life long ministry. This training is challenging
      in every way; it's often intense and requires perseverance and dedication. But it's also extremely rewarding. We hope that God will be stretching your relationship with Him during your time at Camp Caroline and that you will be given tools for effective ministry to take with you wherever you go.
    4. Skill and Career Experience. What you can see, do, and learn in a summer at camp is often extremely valuable for career development. You will go home with practical and marketable skills and a wonderful experience to add to your resume.
