Summer Staff

Experience a season of life with unforgettable scenery, people, and service.

Since 1949, summers at Fort Caswell have seen tens of thousands of young people grow closer to Jesus and in fellowship with their church families. That legacy continues to today, and it’s only possible when people like you use their summer break in service through one of several work areas on Caswell Summer Staff.

We encourage you to learn more about the various positions available, and perhaps take a step outside your comfort zone and into what is sure to become your most rewarding and memorable summer, ever!

What Former Summer Staff Members Are Saying

Having the opportunity to work on Summer Staff for two summers was an incredible experience. I made lifelong friendships, sweet memories, and grew in my faith tremendously. There’s truly nothing like getting to live at the beach while also building God’s Kingdom. I am so grateful for Caswell and the impact it has had on my life.

My experience at Fort Caswell has been nothing short of amazing. From my time working in the cafeteria to being on the Guest Services Team, working at Caswell has been a dream come true! The interaction you get with the campers makes up for the early mornings and the long days. I will never forget my time here and this place will always be my second home!

Dyllan P.

Fort Caswell is a great way to meet new people but also to work. I was able to work on the Guest Services team last summer and I enjoyed the work I did in that workgroup. Caswell is great because you spend your summer in a place where you’re serving Christ but also making lifelong friendships with the people around you.

Walker B.

Working on Summer Staff at Fort Caswell is a dream. We not only have the pleasure of working a fun job at a beach, but we are able to engage in fellowship with one another and spark growth in our relationship with Christ. Without my staff experience, I would not be the same man than I am today.

Carter P.

Caswell means so much to so many people and it is such an amazing experience to be a part of it. Living with other brothers and sisters in Christ, having that community, and encouraging one another in our walks with the Lord is something you can’t take for granted. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to grow in my faith with some of the most beautiful people.

I have loved working at Fort Caswell these past two summers! They have truly been the best two summers of my life. I have made so many lifelong friends & grown closer to God like never before. Caswell is such a unique ministry experience—I definitely recommend it!
