Volunteers

Sagrada Scholarship Bible Camp is a Bible camp that crosses denominational lines and is free to children who normally cannot afford to attend camp. We provide camps for children who have one or both parents in prison. Our main purpose is to teach the children about Jesus, and make disciples of them. We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. All of us at SSBC have dedicated our lives to Loving God and Loving Others.

Every job at SSBC is voluntary and without compensation. Each job is important and is a service unto the Lord. All camp volunteers will be provided with housing and three meals a day. Each camp will begin on a Monday afternoon and end on a Friday morning. We also have a limited space for families that want to serve at camp as a family project. You may sign up for one camp or sign up for all summer. Please study the camp schedule, the job descriptions, and then pray for God’s leading. If you believe God is leading you to serve at SSBC, please complete an application and mail or fax it to us as soon as possible.
