Summer Staff In Hammocks

Summer Staff

Each summer Youth Dynamics Adventures hires a select number of talented young adults from all over the world to lead adventure trips for teens in Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. The Summer Staff ministry team undergoes extensive training and is an integral part of the summer ministry program, which is committed to reaching today’s youth through dynamic relationships and challenging experiences.

As a member of the Summer Staff team, you will guide teens on a variety of wilderness activities, including whitewater rafting, rock climbing, backpacking, challenge courses, horseback riding, kayaking, and more. You will work alongside staff and design the ministry program for each trip and assist in the preparations and logistical operations of the trips. As you serve others, you will also be challenged in your own faith as you work in Christian service with a team of believers and experience your own “edge” moments.

Staffing opportunities are available at each of our three Adventure Bases (Idaho, Oregon, and Stonewater in Washington). Each base has a unique focus of ministry, united by the same heart to share Christ with teens.
