COVID 19 Update

Northern Frontier is still planning, recruiting and pressing ahead for this summer.  To be honest, we do not know how the COVID-19 situation will affect camp, we can only speculate at this time.  We do know that there will most likely be new health practices and extra precautions taken to negate any risk of contracting COVID 19 or any other serious virus or disease.

Because of the times we are in, we have been in contact with CCCA, ACA, many other camps as we explore scenarios and contingency plans.  We do know that there is much to do as we prepare for camp and time is getting shorter.  In about 2 ½ months from now certification week is scheduled to begin.  June 17th is when we have scheduled for Lifeguards to arrive for training so we hope to have information for collegians by May 20th regarding the length of the summer commitment. We are hoping that you will be with us and are working to that end. Please check in on your references to see if they have received an email, and ask them to fill it out at their soonest convenience.

Capt. Budd and I would like to ask you to pray.  Please pray with us for wisdom.  We need the Lord to show us the steps that he would have us to take as we prepare for this summer.  Please pray with us for additional staff.  We have openings for collegians, JCs and Service Crew.  Please pray with us for safety.  In about 6 weeks work weekends begin so we can get Northern Frontier ready for the summer.  Finally, please pray with us for campers, and promote camp with your school/church friends, and in your neighborhoods.

We Develop Leaders

Northern Frontier seeks to grow godly men through Christ-centered wilderness camping. What better way to learn leadership than by being on staff? Our staff goes through over a week of training where they live in close community and participate in group activities. This creates opportunities that focus on helping individuals operate as both leaders in some situations, and serve on a team in others. Summer program offers countless scenarios where leadership can be learned through hands-on experience.

We Grow Together

Northern Frontier is more than just a camp. It is a community. It is made up of the many campers, counselors, and administrative personnel who have spent their summers with us. We are a community that grows together. We believe that spiritual maturity can only happen when we are in fellowship with other believers. This exists at Northern Frontier because of our staff’s commitment to connecting through personal relationships. Our staff is expected to be considerate when speaking and careful when listening. By cultivating a community that respects one another we are truly able to grow as a whole.

Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

We Invest In Our Staff

Our staff members are our most valuable assets at camp. Only when our staff are equipped can ministry happen at camp. That is why our primary center of focus is with our staff. We believe that by investing in the lives of our staff people we will be providing the best summer camp program possible to our campers. There are several men and women on-site throughout the summer who are available to mentor, counsel, encourage and support our summer staff.

We Work Heartily

Being on staff can be hard work. The days are long and physically exhausting. The work we do at camp makes a difference in many people’s lives. It requires time, focus, energy, and being flexible (even vaporous!) We seek to hire staff who will not only take ownership over their own work but the work of others too. This is because, as believers we know we are working for Christ, not for ourselves. As a community, we rely on God to supply our strength to do His work as we pour ourselves into the lives of campers every day.

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.

Colossians 3:23
