Great Summer Job Oppurtunities for High School and College Students

Summershine is a ministry for teens and young adults looking for summer work opportuinities. Fun jobs are assigned at 10 RV parks around the country and you'll work together with other Christian youth.

Here's a link to their website..

Here are the FAQ's from their website:
1.) What campgrounds have Summershiners?

For the summer of 2008 Summershine will be in 10 KOA (Kampgrounds of America) campgrounds.

These include:
Myrtle Beach, SC
Cape Hatteras, NC
Williamsburg, VA
Cherokee, NC
Santa Cruz, CA
Mt. Rushmore, SD
Virginia Beach, VA
Mystic, CTBoston/Cape Cod, MA
Trinity Lake, CA

2.) Will I get paid?

Yes! The campground work, chores, etc. you provide for these properties is paid work (primarily minimum wage - which varies from state to state). Most of your time at activities is your service. Think of Summershine as a combination of a job and service. However, all your time is ministry! You will meet people while "on the clock," be able to invite them to an activity that day, and then build a relationship with them.

3.) Where will I stay?

How much does it cost?Each campground has housing provided for the Summershiners. Your rent and utilities (water and electric) are provided by the property in appreciation for your ministry. A small kitchen is also provided for Summershiners.

4.) How long does the Summershine program last?

Summershine is designed to be a summer long growth experience, unlike any ministry you've been a part of before! The Summershine season varies from campground to campground. Some of our staff begin mid-May, others early-June. Most of the staff stays through early to mid-August, and some through Labor Day. When applying, please give us the maximum availability you can.

5.) What about time off?

Each week you will work approximately 40 hours, with one to two days off a week (again depending on the property). As far as personal time off goes (family vacations, mission trips, weddings, etc.) Summershine aims to accomodate it's staff and their prior commitments. As long as this time off is reasonable, Summershine will work with you.

6.) Is Summershine connected to a particular denomination or church?

Summershine is blessed to work with Christians from a wide variety of church backgrounds. Summershine seeks to employ young people who love Christ, love people, and enjoy bringing them together!
