APPLICATION PROCESS FOR SUMMER 2015 IS NOW OPEN.
The quality of FUGE camps is directly related to the quality staff people recruited to serve and work with us during the summer months. Our staff are the "face of camp."
Children and students who come to camp will not remember the details of the program but will remember the staffer who served as their Bible study leader. We are looking for students who have a passion for the Lord, who love students and an eagerness to serve and pass on their faith to the next generation.
We are all about life-change. We want students to experience the love of Christ, to walk with Him and to be committed followers of Jesus Christ. If chosen to work this summer you will work on a team committed to see students experience this life-change.
If you desire to be used by the Lord and serve Him, if you want to influence the next generation, if you are looking for the most rewarding and exhausting experience of your life, we welcome your application!
Please read below carefully, as this application process is different than most camps.
- Our online application is available June 1 through May 1.
- All applicants must complete an online application and have a personal interview.
- We conduct both personal and SKYPE interviews.
- We do both a fall placement (mid-December) and a spring placement. Applicants will be notified of placement either in mid December or mid April.
- Centrifuge and MFuge have age requirements which must be met by all applicants.
- New for summer 2015: Applicants must turn 19 years of age or have completed their first year of college by June 1st to work Centrifuge or MFuge.
- We do not hire high school students. If you are a high school student and are interested in working a FUGE camp in the future, we recommend the Student Leader Apprentice (SLA) program, SLA is a two-week experience for those entering or just completing their senior year in high school. The first week is dedicated to leadership development and Bible study, the second week the student is apprenticed to an Centrifuge or MFuge staffer. Nashville offers SLA participants the MFuge experience for their second week. Glorieta offers SLA participants the choice between Centrifuge or MFuge for their second week.
