Apply for the best and hardest job you'll ever love.
Serving at Timberlake really is one of the best and hardest things you'll ever do. It's early mornings and late nights, long talks with crying campers, and requires more patience than you've ever had to have in your life. However, if you offer up your summer as a sacrifice to the living God, He will not hesitate to reward you richly and give you more of what you need than you could ever ask or imagine. It's definitely not easy, but it's quite possibly the best thing you'll ever do.
Quick note: This is not the application for JCL. If you would like to be a JCL, please register for the SALT Camp of whatever week you choose. Only after SALT Camp can you be eligible for JCL.
