You've Got Questions. We've Got Answers!
How old do you have to be to apply for camp?
For the large majority of our positions, applicants must be one-year removed from high school in order to work camp. That means they have to graduated high school the year before the summer they are applying for.
When does Staff Training begin?
Staff Training officially kicks off on Wed., May 26, 2021 and that is when the majority of our Summer Staff arrive. There are a few positions that may arrive a few days early, but we'll be sure to let you know if you're in one of those positions.
I have an event I need to attend during the summer, can I leave and come back to camp?
We take these situations on a case-by-case basis, but for the most part, we ask that Summer Staff not leave camp outside of designated off days. We do make exceptions for weddings of immediate family and of course family emergencies.
Why don't I see WinShape Camps International as an option on the Summer 2021 Application?
Due to the higher risk of COVID-19 and international travel, we unfortunately are not able to take teams of Summer Staff on international trips in 2021. While we will greatly miss this opportunity, we are creatively working with our partners to still serve our campers and families overseas! We are also counting down the days until 2022 when we, Lord willing, will be able to take teams overseas again.
How do I apply for one of the nurse positions at camp?
We have a separate application for our nurses (who we refer to as our "Summer Support Staff"). The deadline for new nurses to apply is Friday, Dec. 3rd. You can find the application here: https://summerstaffapp.winshape.org/Support-staff
