Join Our 2021 Summer Team

Spending your summer at Camp Tall Turf is a life-changing experience that develops leaders and strengthens faith in God.   A full summer commitment is required for all positions. See below for position details and requirements. 

Summer Staff are requested to have open availability May 31 - August 11, 2021.   

After much prayer and consideration, the Tall Turf Ministries Board of Directors has made the decision to shift programming.   Tall Turf Ministries will develop relationships with new and existing partners to provide opportunities for socially-distanced programming in Grand Rapids, MI and in-person camps in Walkerville, MI. We would like to offer you an opportunity to serve the Lord and our community in the following programs:

Family Camp
Tall Turf Ministries Family Camp brings families together for activities and fun family challenges.   A variety of activities are offered for kids and adults of all ages.  Also, interactive sessions are offered throughout the weekend to strengthen relationships between families and Christ. While dates are yet to be determined, Family Camp is typically offered on Friday evenings through Sunday afternoon on site at Camp Tall Turf in Walkerville.

Camp To Go+
Camp To Go is a kit of STEAM and worship activity materials geared toward skill development in ages 8-13.  Camp To Go kits are curated by Tall Turf Ministries staff and distributed by partnering agencies.  Camp To Go+ is a combination of kit distribution and guided in-person activities and/or “make and take” crafts facilitated by Tall Turf Ministries staff in 2-3 hour time blocks.  While our partnering sites, times and locations have yet to be determined, it is likely these partnerships will be with churches within the West Michigan region.
