Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Cedar Crest Camp is a United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministry that offers space for children, youth, and adults to connect to God's call to transform the world. Cedar Crest is located just off of Hwy 7 in Lyles, Tennessee.
Summer Staff Team Positions include:
Counselors- A summer counselor is a young adult who has finished at least one year of college or other training, and will work directly with youth & children.
Junior Counselors- Students who have finished their senior year in high school are welcome to apply to be a Junior Counselor. Junior counselors serve during the summer between completing high school and beginning college and receive half the pay full counselors receive throughout the summer.
CITs- Applications to become a counselor in training, or a CIT, are open to students who have just finished their junior year of high school. Though a volunteer position, this staff role is one that affords a willing high school student the opportunity to serve Cedar Crest by being an active staff member with the campers while learning from the counselors.
Program Staff- These team members serve as leadership who support the camp program, summer staff members, and campers. Program staff roles include waterfront director, ropes director, summer nurse, and chaplain.
Lakeshore is located on the shore of Tennessee River, providing hospitality, rest, and reflection for guests of all ages and backgrounds since 1948.
Summer staff should have a desire to the love of Christ, excitement to work in ministry, dedication to working hard, and commitment to the community of camp.

The Ethnic Young Adult (EYA) program is for young justice seekers willing to unpack their faith and identity and develop a deeper understanding of justice. Interns gain professional experience by serving with a placement organization (network partner of Church and Society) to address social injustices. These partner organizations do advocacy, public policy, nonprofit and grassroots organizing. EYAs work with their placement organization four days a week.
EYAs engage in weekly seminars & devotions. These sessions are designed to explore various topics related to Church & Society’s mission, vision, and ongoing efforts. Interns are also introduced to concepts of justice, spiritual practices, and learn from advocates and faith leaders.
Interns in this cohort are provided dorm-style housing at the United Methodist Building directly across from the U.S. Capitol. Interns live in an intentional community with members of our worldwide UMC connection.
This is a unique opportunity to participate in national advocacy and public witness as participants put their faith in action.
