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.
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.
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.
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.
