Summer Staff

Make a Difference!

We are excited about everything God is doing here at Riverside and we are looking for a Christ-centered staff that is committed to the Lord's service for Summer 2021! Check out this video to hear from some past staff about what it's like to work at Riverside.

What makes being a cabin leader so great?

  • There are a lot of opportunities to serve and grow in leadership.

  • We desire to invest in the lives of our staff. We do so through training and intentional discipling.

  • You get to be a part of an amazing Christian community unlike any other.

"The staff is hands down the best part and what makes Riverside such an awesome experience. This camp is a great balance of developing a relationship with Jesus, making friends, learning leadership skills, and having fun!" -Camper Parent

What will it be like?

We offer three different types of programming at Riverside that you as a cabin leader have the chance to be a part of. During the typical camp experience at Riverside, campers stay in air-conditioned cabins with cabin leaders and participate in everything on the main camp site. This means chapel, Bible studies, big group games, quiet time, free time, outdoor and indoor recreational activities, meals together, campfire, and a lot more!

 

Our ranch program combines the traditional camp experience with a high quality program centered around learning to ride horses. We also offer an adventure camp where campers spend a portion of every day canoeing, creek stomping, or adventuring around camp or at a near by location. These campers stay in our platform tents and have a more traditional "camping" experience.

What now?

You can start by heading over to our applications page, by clicking the button at the top or bottom of this page. There is an application for cabin leaders, junior cabin leaders, and returners that you can fill out online. We are still accepting applications for summer 2021, and we will continue to accept applications until all positions have been filled. Check out this website to learn more about Riverside or head over to our Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and/or Twitter pages (RiversideLBC) where you can keep up to date on everything going on at camp. Lastly, please keep in mind that we are not able to hire all applicants, so please be in prayer with us about where God will lead you this summer. We will be trusting in His guidance as well.
