Volunteer Opportunities At Christian Camp

Volunteer Programs for Summer Camp

Adults, College Students and Teens

We need you! Pine Ridge Bible Camp couldn’t operate without our team of talented and dedicated volunteers. As a volunteer, you have a choice to make – How are you going to make this the best summer yet? Spend it volunteering at Pine Ridge Bible Camp. Not only will you enjoy the Michigan outdoors, but you’ll impact the lives of West Michigan children and teens.

Volunteers fill fun and important roles at camp. Housing and meals available, but local commuters are welcome, too! Volunteer for a few hours or for a whole summer. If you have trainings, certifications and skills, we would love to use them. But the most important thing is wanting to volunteer. We’ll find a role for you and provide training.

Complete our volunteer application today! Contact us if you have any questions.

(All volunteers must apply, pass a background check and meet certain qualifications.)

High School Students - Opportunities for Teens Ages 14, 15, 16 & 17

Are you 14, 15, 16 or 17 years old? Teens are some of our most important volunteers! If you’re a high school student, you could be a junior cabin leader or on the kitchen, media or housekeeping teams. Every job is so important to our camp. It’s a great way to build your resume and learn new skills.

Teen volunteers can earn a free week of camp or raise funds similar to a missions trip. It’s also a great way to complete Christian service hours for your school.

Local Commuters

Pine Ridge loves volunteers and is very grateful for all of the many dedicated men, women, and youth who have lent a hand of help over the years. Hundreds of volunteers have partnered with Pine Riidge to help make this ministry into what it is today.

Camp can use volunteers wiith a variety of skillsets. From helping at registration check-in, to mowing the lawn, working in the office, we probably have a job for you!


Many of our volunteers are local and come to Pine Ridge for a day or a few hours. You determine your schedule, and we plug you in to an area that allows you to serve to the glory of God.

Short Term Programs

Starting in 2022, Pine Ridge experienced significant staffing shortages. We met the need through adult volunteers that committed to working an entire camp session as a Cabin Leader. Without these critical volunteers, Pine Ridge would have limited camper attendance and missed out on impacting more lives of campers with the Gospel of Christ.

In 2023, we are seeking at least 4 adult volunteer Cabin Leaders each week of our summer camp as well  as help for some other summer positions. Would you prayerfully consider helping us meet this need?

RV Camp Sites Available

Volunteers have access to RV sites. Pine Ridge has 10 full hook-up RV sites in a beautiful campground with spaces intentionally reserved for volunteers. We have developed a volunteer program that exchanges work for free sites and meals.

RV Site Only: 25 work hour min.

RV Site and Lunch M-F: 30 work hour min.

RV Site and Meals M-F: 40 work hour min.

A volunteer application is needed for any adult volunteer staying in the RV sites so that Pine Ridge can run background and reference checks.

If you have any questions, please contact our office.
