We are looking for college students and young adults who love the Lord, have a desire to serve and are passionate about students. If you are chosen to work FUGE this summer, you will work on a team committed to seeing students experience this life-change.

The quality of FUGE camps is dependent on the staff recruited to serve and facilitate camp during the summer months.

The heart behind FUGE is that students would experience Christ in a deeper, more intimate, life-changing way during their time at camp. Students who come to camp may not remember all the details of the program but they will likely remember the staff member who served as their Bible study leader.

If you’re looking for the most rewarding and exhausting student ministry experience of your life, we welcome your application!

Please read below carefully, as this application process is different than most camps.

  • Our online application is available June 1 through May 1.
  • All applicants must complete an online application and have an interview.
  • We conduct all interviews through Zoom.
  • We do both a fall placement (mid-December) and a spring placement. Applicants will be notified of placement either in mid December or mid April.

 

 

Age Requirements

  • Centrifuge and MFuge have age requirements which must be met by all applicants.
  • Applicants must turn 19 years of age and one year removed from high school by June 1st to work Centrifuge. Applicants must turn 20 years of age by June 1st to work MFuge. 
  • We do not hire high school students. If you are a high school student and are interested in working a FUGE camp in the future, we recommend the Student Leader Apprentice (SLA) program, SLA is a two-week experience for those entering or just completing their senior year in high school. The first week is dedicated to leadership development and Bible study, the second week the student is apprenticed to a Centrifuge or MFuge staffer. Nashville offers SLA participants the MFuge experience for their second week. North Greenville offers SLA participants the choice between Centrifuge or MFuge for their second week. Union University offers SLA participants Centrifuge for their second week.
