At Camp Barnabas, we believe that each individual is created with purpose and ability. As our campers grow, we want to provide an opportunity for them to choose an alternative camp experience in which they can give back, lead others, and inspire those around them to achieve their goals and live a life of purpose.

Our Role Model Program is designed for returning campers (16+) looking for the next step in their Camp Barnabas experience. It is designed for campers who desire to mentor others and/or serve some way. All role models must complete an application to be eligible. 

Role models are placed into cabins with campers and missionaries. They have support from missionaries and staff in their cabin, but may not have an assigned “buddy” for the week. Role models will follow the same schedule as their assigned cabin during the week; but they will also follow their set goals and work on ways to meet them while also collaborating with their assigned cabin and staff.

Role Model interviews will begin January 2022.
