Jesus calls every single one of us to “go.”
We are called to live lives of love in our hometowns as well as throughout the earth. Student Ministries loves missions and desires to equip and empower our students to “go.” We have local missions opportunities which allow students to serve within the walls of Mt. Bethel and in the community. When possible, we also facilitate Spring Break mission trips, allowing our students to “go” and serve in communities both domestically and abroad.

Camp Hope is a week-long, overnight summer camp that empowers children with the chance to build community, experience new opportunities, and find hope for their future. Camp Hope is the entry point into a decade of progressive programming that is specially designed to support children with an incarcerated parent. We offer two sessions of camp, serving over 200 children of inmates each summer, and we rely on over 200 volunteers to support these camp sessions.
Cornerstone Camp is for campers between the ages of 8-12. These campers learn the fundamental Christian principles of love, trust, forgiveness, and joy. Cornerstone also focuses on the development of healthy, supportive relationships between peers and between campers and trustworthy teen and adult role models. Campers progress through the Cornerstone curriculum for three to four years before transitioning to the Leadership Training.
At Camp Hope, we create what we like to call Cabin Families. These families consist of an Adult Leader, a Cabin Counselor, and three or four Campers. All volunteers should be strong - or focused on growing - in their leadership skills and well-grounded in their Christian faith.
We ask all cabin volunteers to commit to the entire week of camp and are hoping to rally 60 volunteers to serve. We need males and females from teens to adults to serve.
Cabin Adult | Age 23+
Cabin Adults are responsible for the day-to-day operations of the cabin. They set the example for the counselor and campers, offer prayer, support and encouragement, and are expected to be problem solvers and manage behavior as well as keep their cabin on the daily schedule.
Cabin Counselor | Rising 9th Grade - Age 22
Counselors play an important role in each cabin family. They are responsible for supporting the Cabin Adult in all areas and on building relationships with campers. They focus on having fun and ensuring a positive experience for everyone involved.
Jr. Counselor | Rising 7th and 8th Grades
Able to serve as volunteers only if they have a parent serving as an Adult Leader.
KidzKamp | Rising 6th grade and below
Children of adult volunteers who are too young to serve in a cabin (rising 6th grade and below – must be “potty trained”) may participate in KidzKamp to enable their parent to serve as an Adult Leader. These children have their own cabin, counselors, and exciting schedule at Camp Hope! KidzKamp is first-come, first-served.
Please note: We are unable to predict the number and ages of children who will sign up for KidzKamp. It is possible your child may be the only one of his or her age in the program. Regardless of this, our staff will do everything possible to provide your child with a fun and safe camp experience.
