Why work at Wi-Ne-Ma Christian Camp? We are working to provide a place for God to use to accomplish his redemptive purpose in our world through Jesus Christ. The programs here conducted by a number of volunteer program staff people gives us the opportunity to serve those who are on the front lines of Christian camping ministry. We make it possible for the counselors, teachers, worship leaders, cabin folk and others to invest their time in sharing the Gospel with their campers and encouraging a life of discipleship in following Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Along the way, we have the opportunity to meet and serve any number of people who believe in Christian Camping ministry. If you are a young person, you will gain valuable life experience. If you are a bit older, you have opportunity to share life wisdom with the next generations coming up. Living and working on the Oregon coast is a wonderful way to spend your summer.
