Come serve as staff for Mission Adventures!

Mission Adventures is one of the world’s largest premier youth ministries providing a wonderful camp-like mission experience for youth groups, as well as families, during spring and summer breaks. If you serve as a staff member of this ministry, we know that you’ll be challenged, inspired, and used by God to impact the lives of hundreds of young people.

Plan your arrival in March for spring MA, or June for summer MA, for the experience of a lifetime. We request and hope that all MA staff remain for the duration of the spring/summer sessions, however, we recognize that some exceptions will need to be made. A minimal fee is required to cover food and housing.
