Other Team Members

Each year, Pioneer welcomes many young adults to camp to teach, guide and support campers, and oversee other camp activities. These dedicated youth are the most valuable resource that we have. Positions available vary greatly but the same commitment and hard work is necessary for all.

We look for energetic young people who have a heart for God and who are willing to give of their time and energy to be models and mentors to the many campers who come to APC. Check out staff & volunteer opportunities here.
