Summer Staff

Serve, Care, Be Changed

Become a Five Pines Ministries summer staffer! Working at Five Pines Ministries is so much more than something to do with your summer down time. You’ll develop leadership skills, change the lives of campers, and grow in your relationship with Christ.

Our summer team is composed of four types of staff: HANDS, counselors, SONIC, and adult leadership staff. HANDS, counselors, and SONIC are primarily high school students who volunteer all or part of their summer to serve God while serving campers. Adult leadership staff work the full summer in a paid position.
