Our team members are college-aged adults who are responsible, faithful leaders. We hold extensive application, interview, and background check processes on all employees.
High School students enrolled in our High School Leadership program work in various roles around the camp and may assist counselors in various capacities.
SAMBICA is a non-denominational Christian Camp with a vision to inspire youth to a relationship with Jesus Christ. We want every camper to know how much God loves them. Because of this, campers participate in daily Bible studies and get to hear from a special speaker daily. Bible studies are prepared by full-time staff and consist of basic Bible stories and truths. Speakers are typically youth pastors from local churches or trained SAMBICA staff. Please contact us directly if you have any questions.
Safety is taken very seriously at SAMBICA. In all areas, staff are trained to keep your camper safe as they enjoy activities.
During the summer we employ Medics who oversee the distribution of medications and provide First Aid for campers. Our Camp Medic is typically an EMT or Nursing Student with advanced training.
Challenge Course: SAMBICA hires certified ropes course facilitators to run all ropes course elements.
Waterfront: Each camper must pass a SAMBICA swim test to swim in the deep end. The test consists of a 30-yard swim, including stopping and change of direction with lifeguards at arms reach at all times. Campers that do not pass or do not wish to take the swim test may swim in the shallower end of the lake and are required to wear a PFD when in the water. Campers may retake the test each day until they pass.
Certified lifeguards are on duty during all swim times. Counselors are also in the water with their campers during all swim times. Our boat drivers are trained and have Washington Boating Licenses. Campers always wear a PFD when on a boat, Seadoo, or water toy. Helmets are mandatory for all campers when riding on tubes or banana boats.
