Each year hundreds of NM youth sense a special calling from God to dedicate their lives to ministry. Called Camp exists to help these youth find answers about their calling and to help propel them into the full ministry that God has planned for them.
Called Camp is a ministry to NM Ministry Network Churches and their students. Any students wishing to attend should communicate with their church leaders. Churches that are sending students must provide adults to attend Called Camp with their students. Adults must provide a completed Pastoral Reference form to attend.

COUNSELORS AND CREW
All churches MUST provide counselors proportionate to the number of students they bring. Online application must be submitted asap and no later than 14 days before the first day of camp. Applications submitted late may result in non-acceptance and limitation on the number of campers allowed to attend.
See Policy Manual for additional information.
For every 1-9 male campers, each church must provide 1 male counselor.
For every 1-9 female campers, each church must provide 1 female counselor.
Campers will not be allowed to attend without adequate counselors.
Camp Counselors are directly responsible for the care and oversight of the campers at all times during camp. Counselors should be trustworthy, of good character, patient, mature christians, team players and 19 years or older. Counselors must understand that they are coming to serve all campers, not just those that belong to their church.
Medical CREW should be RN or EMT certified/licensed. Medical CREW are expected to maintain oversight of the medic station, be available as a resource person and advisor in all medical situations and injuries, oversee and dispense camper medications, record treatments given, accompany campers to the emergency room, etc. A team of 1-2 Medical CREW is needed for each week of camp.
*Please promote this need to your churches and look for individuals that may serve as Medical CREW. Our camps are completely dependent upon volunteers and qualified medical CREW are critical to each camp.*
