CranHill is looking for students, ages 15-17, to join our team as volunteers for a three-week session of service, discipleship, and leadership training. Students will engage as volunteers in horsemanship, adventure, aquatic, youth programing, and operational needs. They will learn, serve, and lead throughout their experience. Each participant will be provided with lodging and meals for the duration of their stay. This will be a development opportunity working toward the possibility of becoming future summer staff, as well as equipping young people with the faith to impact the world for Christ!
This is a unique opportunity to serve shoulder to shoulder with other believers, leaving a lasting impact in the lives of campers and families.

There is no cost to participate.


ACTS (A Call to Serve) participants register for one of three 3-week sessions. Participants arrive on Saturday, serve 3 weeks, and leave on Saturday. Each week will have a different focus: 

  • Week 1: Skills Training and Service

  • Week 2: Service and Leadership Development

  • Week 3: Leadership and Sending



Participants will serve in different areas of the ministry: 

  • Ranch Hand (Barn): Feeding and watering horses, prepping horses for trail rides and wagon rides, grooming animals, cleaning stalls and petting farm areas, assisting with programs.

  • JCL (Junior Cabin Leaders): Assist Cabin Leaders with the supervision of campers, help lead games.

  • Activity Team (Adventure, Beach, Crafts, Games, Events): Assist with facilitating activities, setting and cleaning up games and events, maintain activity equipment.

  • Support Crew (Kitchen, Maintenance, Accommodations, Store)

    • Kitchen: Prepare dining room for meals, serve food and drinks, clean dining room and kitchen, assist with food preparation, wash dishes and pots/pans

    • Maintenance & Grounds: Maintain lawns and flower beds, split and bundle firewood, clean firepits, assist with work projects

    • Accommodations: Clean and maintain facilities, sweeping, mopping, laundry, trash removal

    • Store: Serve guests, manage inventory, run register, scoop ice cream, clean and maintain building.


Our desire is that participants leave the ACTS Service Team challenged, changed, and that their faith will be more deeply grounded in joyfully serving the Savior. Their acts of service will not only support the transformation of others into the image of Christ, but through service, they will experience the power of Christ at work within them.
