Where is Lake Beauty Bible Camp Located?
LBBC is located about 2 hours northwest of the Twin Cities, putting us right in the heart of the state of Minnesota. Closer cities include St. Cloud (45 minutes) and Little Falls (20 minutes).

​Is there an age requirement?
Applicants who will be 17 during the summer may apply for the following positions: activities team, housekeeping team, kitchen team, lifeguard, and wrangler.

What are the dates of employment?
The 2021 camping season extends from Tuesday, June 1 through Friday, August 13. Built-in days off will be determined before summer begins.  

How much will I make?
Our summer staff make between $1870 and $2200 per summer depending on previous summers served at Lake Beauty and the level of responsibility for their job position.

What denomination is LBBC a part?
LBBC is a ministry of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) and is owned by 66 churches within the Northwest Conference of the ECC, though we have campers from many Christian traditions (or none at all). Our campers come from southern and central MN, western WI, and eastern SD. We even have a handful of churches in ND and IA!

Can I get additional time off?
Additional days off may be permitted depending on the timing and length of the period requested. These dates should be discussed with our team during the interview process. Please also note that days off do affect total compensation received.

When is the deadline to apply?​
There is no deadline to apply, as we continue to hire until all of our positions are filled. Some positions are filled quickly, so be sure to apply early if you want to be considered for your position(s) of choice.

Will I be able to use technology during the summer?
Summer staff are free to use technology on days off and while on breaks during summer programs. They are not permitted to have electronic devices on their persons while working.

We do have WIFI available, but it is not always the most reliable (we are a camp, after all!)

What should I pack to bring?
After you have accepted an offer of employment, we will send you a list of everything you should bring to camp, along with a lot of other details to prepare you for the summer!

Can I count a summer position as an internship?
We have had previous summer staff use their experience as an internship. We would be happy to talk with you to see if any of our positions would fulfill the requirements of the internship for which you are looking.

Are room and board provided?
Summer staff are provided housing, food, and laundry facilities during their time of employment. Linens, laundry supplies, etc. are not provided by Lake Beauty.
