We seek highly-skilled, deeply-devoted Christian women who are passionate about youth ministry and serious about growing in their walk with Christ. We believe the best, most effective way to witness and disciple young women is through our day-in and day-out lives. Therefore, we are seeking disciplined, kind-hearted, tender, courageous, Christ-like women. If that describes you, even in part, we hope that you will apply!


We have a staff of 29 college-age (and older) women, who go through a thorough application and interview process before being hired. We do our utmost to ensure our staff are not only excellently qualified and skilled, but are also deeply committed to the Lord and to ministering to 9-17 year old girls with His love.

Once hired, each new staff member undergoes a crucial three-week training period on-site. During that training, staff receive their Wilderness First Aid training certification and Life Guarding certification as needed. In addition, staff are trained on our area hiking trails, taken through all aspects of being a camp counselor, including a series of intense and extensive "rehearsals" created to determine their strengths and weaknesses, prior to camper arrivals.


There are many benefits to serving at Tapawingo:

Enjoy a truly Christian community - without gossip!

Develop solid, biblically-based friendships

Be challenged to grow outside your comfort zone

Deepen in your understanding and love for the Lord

Develop various activity area skills

Grow in your camping/hiking ability

Enjoy facilities of parent organization, CAMP-of-the-WOODS

Discover your ministry strengths and weaknesses

There's so much more to share! If you're interested, please apply and we'll take it from there. If your application reveals the type of staff member we need, you'll be invited to participate in a phone interview with our Director.
