Come and join the adventure this summer!
Hello Prospective Staff Members!
Thank you for your interest in a staff position at Camp Amnicon this summer.
Camp Amnicon is an adventure-based Lutheran Outdoor Ministries camp located in Wisconsin at the mouth of the Amnicon River on Lake Superior - yep, the really big one. We focus on equiping our campers to get outside their comfort zones, participate in a caring Christian community, and ultimately to learn about and experience God's grace in the wilderness. Each week of the summer we embark on some of the most unique high adventure camping experiences in the country - from paddling Lake Superior in our 34-foot Voyageur canoes to hiking and canoeing through the enchanting forests and thrilling rapids of Wisconsin's rivers - from exciting wilderness challenges to deep conversations around a cozy campfire.
If you are chosen as a staff member, we will prepare you to do your best work in a wide variety of locations and circumstances, with a wide variety of people, and even in a wide variety of weather! You can expect to acquire a large collection of resume worthy skills, including: oral communication skills, critical thinking and problem solving, interpersonal and leadership skills, collaborative skills, and creativity.
