– Consistently seek opportunities to minister to and encourage campers in their relationship with the Lord.

– Prepare throughout the week and come ready for an in-depth discussion in staff Bible study.

Day Camp On Location (DCOL) is Eagle Lake’s largest program! This program is perfect for you if you love the idea of bringing the fun of camp to communities across the United States. More than that, you’re flexible and excited to build meaningful relationships with your team, your campers, and the churches you visit.
