"Camp is one of my favorite places because it encapsulates the JOY that comes with being in a relationship with God. Sometimes we forget that God loves having fun too, and that's what camp is all about! I am humbled and honored to be a part of it."
Programming Director, 8 year staff
"I have absolutely loved working at camp! The staff are amazing and truly feel like a family. Camp Ida-Haven has also brought me closer to Jesus, and it's an honor to be a part of the process for all the kids that get to come as well. This is the BEST place to spend your summer, WHERE THE FUN NEVER ENDS!!!"
Counselor, 3 year staff
"Being part of the camp family has forever changed me: given me countless life lessons, built me into the person I am, shaped me into this service-minded, spiritually-oriented person I never could have imagined I'd become. It is, has been, and always will be the greatest blessing of my life."

Who Should Apply?
Camp Ida-Haven predominantly hires students from Gem State Adventist Academy and Walla Walla University. We hire staff members who desire to demonstrate their love of God through service to young people in the ministry that is camp. We encourage you to apply!
Camp Ida-Haven is a special place that leaves an imprint on many. For this reason, there is very little turnover in staff. Please do not be discouraged if you are not hired the first time you apply. You are undoubtedly talented and can be of service to God this summer in other ways.
