Camp David Sierra Nevada Volunteer Application
Our desire is to gather an outstanding group of dedicated staff who love the Lord with all their heart and have a passion to share that love with kids. Our mission is to not only impact the lives of at-risk children, but to help our staff grow in their relationship with God, develop character, and become life-giving leaders.

A Mission Experience
Serving at Camp David Sierra Nevada is like going on a mission outreach to inner-city youth, many of whom have never heard about Jesus. We wholeheartedly believe you will find it to be life-changing as you are stretched spiritually, emotionally and physically. You will give your all to show campers the love of Christ. Being on the Camp David Sierra Nevada Team is a fun, rewarding experience that could change your life forever.
