One week, two great options: Wranglers and X-Plore! From June 16 – 21, our high school-aged campers can enjoy all of their favorite DuBois Center activities and MORE! More fun, more adventure, more friends, AND an extra special treat – more meals served in the Rustic Village. Plus, “Choice Times” will return with even more fun and unique options.
If you have completed grades 8-12, this is a great week to build community, grow closer to God, experience nature and have some great unplugged FUN! Plan now to attend and watch for details in the coming weeks.
Is your vacation request due? Consider a week (or even a few days) at DuBois Center and join our Summer Camp 2019 team!

Band-Aids – YES, but so much more! One setting for ministry at DuBois Center is our health center. Volunteer nurses, most of whom are RNs, are a vital piece of our summer camp program. Serving as a camp nurse can be a very rewarding mission experience, one that is very different than most traditional jobs. Responsibilities include reviewing camper medical forms, conducting health screenings, receiving & administering medications, providing first aid & basic medical treatment, and documentation. But when you really get down to it, nurses spend most of their time removing ticks, soothing rashes, distributing medications and providing extra TLC for homesick and nervous campers.
If you are an RN, please consider serving with us for a full or partial week. The living quarters do have AC and there is often time to join us for worship, explore the woods or just sit back and read a book. For more information, contact Shirley at DuBois Center at 618-787-2202 or shirley.director@DuBoisCenter.
Is this the year for more than just another summer job? DuBois Center is searching for fun-loving and child-focused individuals with a heart for ministry to serve on our summer staff. Amazing memories + resume building skills = a summer to remember. Check out the Summer of Service flier and consider whether serving outdoors with a dynamic team might be just the opportunity for you. Open positions include cabin counselors, barn staff and coordinators. Lifeguard certification is a plus.
Questions? Contact Shirley at 618-787-2202 or by email. Application packets are available online.
Volunteers are the heart of strong and healthy outdoor ministry programs. At DuBois Center, volunteers serve throughout the year on committees and teams, at the barn, in the office, on work projects, as retreat leaders and fund raisers.
During the summer, there are a variety of ways to be involved and make a difference in the lives of the young people we serve. Join us for a few hours on a Sunday afternoon, a couple days during the week or a full session of camp – no matter what time you can give, know that it is a big help! Volunteers work hand in hand with paid summer staff to provide our fun, engaging and faith-filled program.
