Founded in 1935, Camp Cumcito sits near Warsaw, Missouri and offers a one-week summer Bible camp experience to 400 children and teens, ages 4-16, every summer. Serving low-income children, mainly from urban KC and rural Benton County, we give priority to those who couldn’t pay for camp otherwise. Interns function in a team to facilitate Camp CUMCITO with like minded volunteers and staff to model and teach the gospel, healthy ways of living, and relating to CUMCITO campers. Responsibilities will vary widely as the summer shifts from preparation to camp sessions and end with follow-up home visits.
There are some things you can expect to happen every day while you are an intern at Camp CUMCITO. Camp is outside in the midst of nature where you can experience swimming, lake time, chapel two times a day, eating three meals a day, engaging with the urban core, engaging healthy lifestyle, serving in a team context, and lots more as you experience each week of camp.
The intern serves in a variety of roles over six weeks of summer camp, which include: cabin, rec, lifeguard, craft, chapel, housekeeping, food service, medical, journalism, administrative task, etc. We end each week of camp with prayer, paperwork, preparation, and rest before the next week starts.
