Whether you're interested in working as a summer staff member, week-long volunteer, or on our Hospitality or Grounds staff, your time at Loucon will be both demanding and rewarding. With Christ at the center of every activity, task, job, or chore, the opportunities for growth are endless. Not only do staff and volunteers have the opportunity to serve and grow personally, but they also have the opportunity to grow in Christian community with one another. With a focus on service to every camper as well as to each other, it is our prayer that everyone who enters the gates of Loucon will grow in their relationship with Christ.
