A summer of ministry at a Christian camp can change your life forever. You will experience countless evidences of God working in the lives of young people. If God leads you to a camp this summer, you are participating with Him in changing lives for His glory. It is incredible to think the God of the universe desires to use you to accomplish His perfect will.

Ironwood is located in the high desert of Southern California. We have two summer camp programs—Broken I Ranch, our junior camp, and Rivertown, our teen camp. Broken I Ranch focuses on building foundations for junior-aged young people. Rivertown has tracks for high school and junior high; in the the morning, messages target the specific age group and their struggles, and the two tracks come together for afternoon and evening activities, games, fellowship, and services. Our desire for both camps is to reach young people with the Bible so they can make decisions concerning salvation, full surrender, and a consistent Christian walk.

If you are interested in serving at camp for a summer, please carefully look through the information about our summer schedule, staff benefits, scholarship options, and prayerfully consider the opportunity of serving at Ironwood. Then take a few moments to complete the application and reference release form. We look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you might have about serving our God together at Ironwood this summer.
