Be a Hero

 Is God calling you to love his children?

Counselor Application

"I came to Deer Creek hoping to make an impact in the lives of young people; I walked away with a newfound love for God, friends I would have for a lifetime, and a new confidence that has carried over into my future career!"

- Aaron Peralez, Lubbock Christian University


Live the Gospel this Summer

Since 1996, Deer Creek Camp has been showing children the good news of Jesus Christ by "loving them until they ask why". This is ONLY possible through the dedicated service of our counselor staff. We are seeking young men and women that have completed their first year of college and believe that God is calling them to an unforgettable summer of doing His work. There is no greater joy than seeing a child come into a saving relationship with the incredible person of Jesus Christ, and our counselors experience that joy every day.

We Want YOU for our Summer 2021 Staff

In addition to sharing the gospel with our campers, counselors also get to have a ton of fun along the way! Daily summer activities include Bible studies, rock climbing adventures, swim times, praise and worship, dynamic preaching, team building initiatives, and so much more. Our campers come from a variety of and backgrounds, cultures, and family dynamics, making every week of the summer a brand new experience. Pray that God would reveal to you His will about being on our staff this summer!


Be a Mentor

Children today are more in need of positive godly role models than ever before.  Being a mentor and friend to your campers is a joy that most college students don't get to experience.



Incredible Friendships

We hire a staff of over 30 college students every summer who create bonds that last a lifetime. Our counselors experience the joy of loving others as Christ loves us.


Experience the Tradition

Deer Creek Camp has a unique set of traditions, history, and sayings. Counselors get to learn them all, while adding some of their own along the way. Be a part of creating the DCC traditions of the future.
