You only have three summers in college. Make this one count.

If you’ve attended Crossings as a camper, you know the life change that can happen in one week. 

Since Crossings began in 2000, our mission has remained the same: to proclaim the Gospel. We have witnessed campers cross from death into a new identity in Christ summer after summer for 25 years. This summer, you can join this legacy of Kingdom growth and make a lifelong impact on students.

Working for Crossings has been the single most growing experience in my Christian walk. My summer at Cedarmore was like running a marathon; through it I learned about being truly dependent on the Lord as my source of strength and confidence, and discovered a cup to fill me with love for serving others...I’m so grateful for the cornerstone that Crossings has been in my life!

At Crossings I learned what it can look like to serve alongside churches for the advancement of the gospel. We learned to work not for ourselves but for God’s purposes in the church and among the nations!

Besides being the most exciting job I've ever worked, a summer at Crossings is a well of opportunity that offers what no job can: every moment is spent glorifying the Lord. In my two summers, I've never received so much satisfaction and joy. Being a part of the mission at Crossings is more than a job, it's an honor.

The question we need to ask is how can I serve the Lord this summer? ...working at camp is an incredible way to serve the Lord and His creation. You are given an opportunity to proclaim the gospel to hundreds of students while working with your brothers and sister in Christ.
