Become a CA

Join Our Team

Conference Assistants are a vital member of the Conference Services program. CAs live and work in the residence halls, responding to the day-to-day needs of our conference and camp guests.

Being a CA will help you develop many skills employers value. CAs serve guests from all over the world, from all walks of life and from all age groups.

CAs tell us it's the close-knit, fun-loving team of about 40 other student leaders that makes their CA experience the best of their lives.

The CA team is comprised of well-rounded, diverse students who share a desire to serve others. If you’re looking for a fun, positive atmosphere where you can develop valuable, marketable skills, apply today to be a CA!
