Notes:

​Young Life is a relational ministry. Staff must be able to convey a sense of Christ-like hospitality and concern for guests and staff. Responding to the unexpected needs of a guest in a prompt and professional manner is important. All staff members are expected to represent Young Life positively and professionally within the community and be able to work with and minister to the volunteer high school and college-age young people who attend our camp.
Washington Family Ranch is a very remote property with a large dedicated staff that results in approximately 150 people living year round at camp. This creates a unique and spiritually rewarding environment of Christian work and fellowship. There are two camps located here: a high school focused camp (Canyon) and a middle school facility (Creekside). The middle school camp opened in the summer of 2011, increasing our summer camping capacity and bringing the new and exciting challenges associated with operating two facilities at once.
