Despite the current weather forecast, summer is coming soon. Streator Baptist Camp is seeking staff members to serve during the busy season that will see hundreds of children and teens enjoy multiple weeks of disciple-making camps.
“We are prayerfully seeking workers to serve alongside us as we show the love of Jesus through camp ministry,” Streator Camp Manager Jacob Kimbrough said.
Summer workers are needed for ten weeks, beginning May 26. These paid positions will assist with recreation for visiting groups, facilities care, meal preparation, and more. The positions are for a five-day week, except for a few occasions when church groups are booked on a weekend.
Camp Cook will manage food service for groups of 30 to 150, organize kitchen staff, and keep the dining service running on schedule. Candidates must have a state food service manager’s license or obtain one before June. “We’re looking for someone who is kind and welcoming to our guests,” Kimbrough said. He’s also looking for a self-starter in this position.
Active SBC church membership is required for all staff. Candidates must pass a background check and take Ministry Safe Training on their first day of employment. Housing and meals are provided for summer staff.
In addition to the paid workers, Kimbrough said the camp would welcome long-term volunteers to work alongside kitchen staff, assist recreation, and facilities upkeep all summer. He also has short-term volunteer openings for one-to-five weeks in June and July.

In addition to the preparations at Streator, Lake Sallateeska Baptist Camp is leaning into summer ministry with multiple weeks of camps for children and teens. The theme for Summer 2023 is “I am a follower.” The full schedule and online registration for camp weeks at both IBSA facilities is available at www.IBSA.org/ministry-resources/kids/.
