Summer Teams


Each year, Circle Square Ranch welcomes many young adults to our Summer Camp programs to teach, guide and support campers and oversee activities. These dedicated youth are the most valuable resource that we have. Positions available vary greatly but the same commitment and hard work is necessary for all.

We look for energetic young people who have a heart for God and who are willing to give of their time and energy to be models and mentors to the many campers who come to Circle Square Ranch Check out Summer Staff & Volunteer opportunities below.
