So, you’d like to become an AC! If you are going into grades 6-9 you are in the right place! Here’s a quick rundown of what it actually means to have this job. Your duties as an AC, or Adventure Crew member, essentially consist of helping Counselors with whatever they need to make Adventure Weeks awesome. This means helping campers move from station to station, interacting with them on bus trips, helping keep campers excited during big group time, and all round creating a safe environment to learn about Jesus and help them grow in their faith. We will be conducting interviews for this position in May and will let you know our decision by June 3rd.

This year we genuinely want to help you, the AC’s, to get the most out of this experience and hopefully grow in Christ this summer.


Serving with our VIPs!

Are you interested in serving with children with Special Needs? If so, we have two options for you. See which is the best fit for you!

  1. Intern position - fill out the form (coming soon)

    This year at Adventure Weeks we are offering a Special Needs Internship to support our campers that attend that are affected by disability. This internship is designed for high school and college students with a heart for disability ministry, with a focus on service, commitment, and personal development. To apply for this internship, you must be in high school and be able and willing to commit to interning for 6 of the 9 weeks of camp. As an intern you will be paired with a VIP (a camper affected by disability) to ensure that their camp experience is the best that it can be. If this internship is something that you are interested in, please fill out this application, and you will be contacted about an interview by our AW Special Needs Coordinator.

  2. Buddy position - fill out the form (coming soon)

    Being a part of the Adventure Weeks team is an opportunity to be used by God to impact the lives of the children and their families in your own community. As part of our Adventure Weeks team, you will be on the forefront of bringing the truth and joy of Jesus Christ to these families. Please prayerfully consider volunteering your time to serve with these wonderful campers that we have. We are excited to be implementing a Special Needs Internship available for high school and college students. As a buddy, you will be serving alongside these Interns. Please know that although previous experience with children affected by disability is valued, it is not necessary in order to serve VIPs.

    We look forward to hearing from you! If you require any additional information please feel free to email me at awspecialneeds@gmail.com or call: 818-575-2257
