How much do I get paid?
Isn't it great serving the Lord by working with children? This is a job, but it is also something Christians are called to do--use their gifts to glorify God. After all expenses are paid, the remainder is distributed to counselors based on age, performance, and years of experience.

Those needing community service hours can donate the amount of hours needed, and be paid for the remaining hours.
