Trained camp leaders care for campers and foster a safe, comfortable environment. Leaders are with campers 24/7—always available to help in any way needed. They encourage campers to try new activities and grow in their walk with Christ. Camp leaders have a heart for serving in children's camp ministry. Many of our leaders have served for multiple summers—they're experienced camp leaders and love what they do. Summer after summer, many camp leaders return to Camp Lewis to serve. They love seeing a camper's face after enjoying an activity for the first time, praying with a camper as he makes a life-changing decision, or leading their team in a victory cheer at game time. Their goal is for every camper to stay safe, grow in Christ, and have a fantastic week full of memories.
Each leader is experienced with children and is carefully trained for the responsibility. Just as importantly, they care for their campers as a group and as individuals. At the beginning of the week, campers are assigned to cabins. Each cabin leader stays with their campers in the cabin and at all meals, activities, and services to assure a camp experience that's both safe and fun.
During training, the college-age and adult camp leaders learn how to supervise camp activities and work with campers of different ages. They pray for their future campers and are shown how to answer spiritual questions at a child's level. They learn procedures to keep each day at camp running smoothly, how to respond if there's an accident or emergency, and
even little details like what to do if it starts raining.
A registered nurse is always available to treat scrapes and bruises, administer medicine, and care for campers' health needs any time (day or night). Certified lifeguards carefully watch
over the pool, and lake personnel are hands-on supervisors at all lake activities.
The nurse and lifeguards are CPR certified
