Camp Carl Benefits


We believe that every role is a critical one at Camp Carl. Accordingly, your pay rate is based on how many years you’ve worked at camp. Paychecks are calculated based on a daily rate. Because our training days tend to fluctuate each year, pay tends to follow this approximate structure:

  • 1st Summer: $2000
  • 2nd Summer: $2200
  • 3rd Summer: $2400
  • 4th Summer & beyond: $2600
  • Unit Leaders: $3000

All summer pay calculations include paid staff training weeks for a total of 11 or 12 weeks, based on your position. This summer pay structure is based on a day rate and assumes you don’t miss any days during the summer. You can take one week unpaid vacation.

Meals and Housing

Meals and housing are provided during the work week. Our cabins are newly renovated and our food is amazing… just ask past staff.

Time Off

You get time off! All of our staff is off on weekends from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon (about 42 hours). Most staffers take this opportunity to head home to do laundry, run errands, go to church, REST or maybe catch a movie. For those out-of-town staff, you can stay on the property for the weekends or more commonly be invited home with one of our local staff members!

Sibling Discount

Not only would we love for your younger siblings to come to Camp Carl, they get to come for HALF OFF. Let’s repeat that: your sibling can get a 50% discount for a week of camp! Bonus!


Community at Camp Carl is authentic, real, and life-changing. You live and serve arm-and-arm with generationally-minded and eternity-focused people who will LOVE sacrificially. The community that you will gain over the course of your time at Camp Carl will enrich your life, and you very well could meet the people that will stand next to you on your wedding day.
