Launch Camp – DFW, Texas

Love Jesus?

Love kids?

If you answered yes to these questions, then apply here for the best summer experience of your life!!!  You will gain community with your peers while making an eternal investment within the lives of campers while in their “backyard.” Job opportunities are available for either half or full summer positions.

Sky Ranch Launch Camp is our entry level camping experience for campers and camper parents that are not yet ready to participate in an overnight experience. Launch Camps are located throughout the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. These camps run during the day from Monday to Friday and are designed to acclimate young kids to a camp setting through exciting activities, experiences, and Bible studies.

As a member of the Launch Camp team you will bring all the joy, energy, and creativity of overnight camp to a kid who is not yet ready to leave home. Launch Camp campers do not stay overnight, but that does not mean their experience is less by any means! You will have the opportunity to have fun while, at the same time, sharing Christ with them in exciting and creative ways.

We transform churches and schools into an amazing world of Sky Ranch where everyone has an absolute blast and grows closer to God! Through the experience a camper has with the counselor, we hope to see them grow in their relationship with God and gain the confidence they need to mature into a camper who will thrive in an overnight camping experience in the future.

Ministry to our staff:
Your summer experience will be one that you will have to lean on God to get you through. No matter what position, you will be stretched in many ways you’ve never been stretched before.

We will plug you into community groups, guy and girl nights, and a discipleship program while living life together!
