Being a Monarch Missionary

What an awesome opportunity to be a Missionary in your own Neighbourhood!  If you love a challenge and want to use your skills, gifts and talents impacting the lives of kids apply to work at Monarch Summer Camp!

Summer Missionary positions start the 1st week in July and run for 8 weeks.   

NOTE*  All positions with Monarch are Missionary positions and require support building.  Some senior positions are supported by grants, but still require some support building. Individual Fund raising is supported by donations given to the camp for that purpose.  Amounts vary from year to year, so no base amount can be promised.

Support raising gives people the opportunity to invest in you and the children you will minister to throughout the summer.  It is a great opportunity for you to see God provide!
