At Behold we are dedicated to creating a safe, clean, wholesome environment for both campers and staff; one that focuses on loving God and loving others; encouraging youth to set anchors of faith for the rocky seas of the "real world".  It is our hope that we can show our campers that doing right, living clean, and serving others is the most rewarding and sincere response to the love of Jesus Christ.  In order to fulfill this goal, it only makes sense that our counselors hold these goals themselves; to be clean and wholesome in thoughts, words and actions; and to serve as good role models, instilling these qualities in the youth they will lead. By applying for this position, it is understood that you are ready to be a role model for youth. Are you in?
