Camp Speakers

Jeremy and Jenilee Goodwin are both ordained ministers with the Assemblies of God. After college, they served in #kidmin for 12 years in Ohio. In 2013, God opened the door to West Africa where Jeremy and Jenilee currently serve as AGWM missionaries. Through relationship building, leadership training and mentoring, they assist our national churches and pastors to build healthy children’s ministries to better reach the next generation for Jesus! They have 3 girls who are learning life from around the world. As a family, they love playing in the outdoors, exploring far away places, trying new things, drinking coffee and making life adventurous and fun!

Apply To Be a Room Leader

The success of Kids Camp depends on team members who dedicate a week of their summer to serve campers as their Room Leader. We accept applications from eligible adults who are pastors, youth leaders, parents, college students, and those who were personally impacted when they were a camper and now want to give back.

Age Requirements

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer at Kids or Starter Camp as a Room Leader. No exceptions. If you are interested in joining the team but are under the age of 18, we would love to have you join us as a LIT(Leader In Training) Click HERE for that application.

Important

All volunteer camp staff are placed as Room Leaders. Room assignments are typically made based on church groups with a leader from the same church as the Room Leader, but this is not always the case and cannot be guaranteed. All staff must be willing to lead any campers, whether the camper is from your home church or not. All Room Leaders are expected to participate in all camp activities with enthusiasm and lead every camper to a positive camp experience without favoritism.

Registration Fees

Due to the cost of running camp, the price for Support Staff (Room Leaders) registration is $50 per person. This fee covers the mandatory background check and a small portion of the cost of housing, T-shirt, and meals for the week of camp. If you are applying to be a Room Leader for your church group and your church will be covering your cost, you may use your confirmation email (sent to your provided email address upon completion of this registration form) as a receipt for your church to reimburse you or they may send a check to Ohio Ministry Network for payment of your registration fee.

Acceptance

No phone registration or partial registration will be accepted. Only completed and paid applications will be considered for acceptance. Walk-on staff will not be accepted. All acceptance of Support Staff will take place via email on a first come, first serve basis. Priority for acceptance is given to leaders serving their church group as a Room Leader.

Completing the application does not guarantee acceptance. Please wait for your acceptance email before making plans to attend Camp.

Waiting List

Many camps fill up. If you apply and the camp is already filled, you will be contacted and placed on a waiting list. If there is a cancellation, the spot will be filled from the waiting list in the order in which they were received.

2017 GROUP REGISTRATION

If you are a group leader and need to reserve space at Camp for your church group, please request a Group Hold code. Once we receive and process your request, you will receive an email with the Group Hold code that is specific to your group. You can then send parents the link to register online along with the Group Hold code to use when registering.

Benefits of a Group Hold:

  • It allows parents to easily register online and the campers are then shown as registered as a part of your church group.
  • A Group Hold allows you to customize the Camp price that parents see. Need to add additional funds to cover transportation to and from Camp? No problem! We can add that for you. Or if your church will be paying a portion of the registration fee for each camper, we can customize the price your students’ parents see when they pay for camp.
  • A Group Hold allows you to hold space at your preferred Camp for your group. Please note that we will release any unfilled spaces within a Group Hold 1 month before each camp. You will be contacted via email when space needs to be released from your Group Hold.
