Camp Nikos is an overnight camp for elementary aged kids in our regular weekly programming. Counselors are paired with 1-2 campers to develop a relationship with each other throughout camp. The Support Crew is made up of college students and adults with supporting roles ranging from cabin leaders to activity helpers! Throughout camp we’ll have fun games, yummy food, bible lessons, devotionals, singing & dancing, art, swimming, zip-lining, and more! The purpose of camp is to teach the campers about Jesus, show them God’s love for them, and to have fun together!

Location: Twin Oaks Ranch in Buda, TX

Cost: $375   (Scholarships Available if Needed)

Read below to learn more about all available volunteer positions– for the whole week or one-day opportunities!

Lifeguard:

Must have current certification. Come for the entire time, or just for a shift. Anything is helpful! Email jessica@mpaustin.org for more details. 

Counselor:

Counselors are 14 and older that are paired up with 1-2 campers for the entire camp! As a camper’s counselor, you get to build a friendship, have fun with them, help them make good choices, and participate in all the activities together. Counselors and campers are placed in cabin groups, so counselors are able to help each other out and build camaraderie as a cabin group. You will sleep in the same cabin as your camper and be responsible for them (with help) the duration of camp. 

Kitchen Help:

Our amazing cook needs some help in the kitchen! This could involve meal prep, cooking, serving food, keeping the kitchen clean, dishwashing, and other various tasks. 

Support Crew:

The Support Crew is for college aged and older. Everyone that makes up the Support Crew helps where needed. This could include helping with activities, serving snacks, relieving counselors during their break, helping with behavior problems, and more. Having reliable people available and ready for any task helps camp run more smoothly!

An important role within Support Crew are our Cabin Leaders! Cabin Leaders are adults who have been to camp before and/or have experience with kids. They will help lead the cabin in unity, handle more difficult situations, offer counselor support, and be an extra set of hands and eyes for their assigned cabin.
