What is Marannook?

A kids camp. A discipleship program. A summer that will set the trajectory for the rest of your life as believers. Becoming the premier camp in east Alabama for counselors, campers, the community, and the glory of God!

 The Who:

Anyone who is a college-age professing Christian is eligible to apply for the summer counselor position.

The What:

Located 30 minutes north of Auburn, Marannook is a gospel-centered camp that serves 2nd-9th graders over the course of the summer. What makes Marannook unique is that we don’t just ask you to be a counselor all summer. We have an intentional discipleship community and a pathway to care for your soul. We invite you into a gospel-centered community of college students where you will learn and grow together. Our discipleship program will teach you how to study the Word, exegete Scripture, memorize Scripture, and apply the Word to your life. You’ll learn about biblical theology and the whole story of God, learning how to story tell the scriptures. Best of all, it’s reproducible so you can teach others also.

  It’s not just a summer, it’s a summer that will help set the trajectory for the rest of your life as a believer.  Our summer has 27 days of camp and 25 days of discipleship. You’ll alternate serving as a counselor and as activity support throughout the summer, but no matter what, you’ll always be having fun and get this… you’ll get paid for it!

The Why:

Because our walk with God starts with knowing Him through His Word. We often hear that we need to make disciples, yet we have never been discipled. You’ll learn how to hear, read, observe, interpret, memorize, and apply the word of God to your life and answer questions like “who do I want to be in 5 or 10 years as a disciple of Christ”..not what do I want to do or where do I want to be, but “who and whose will I be?”. It’s where you will take what you learn and help write the bible studies and lessons that kids will learn as part of camp and use gospel threads in every activity we do. It’s where you begin to hear from the Lord and know what it means to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.

Room and Board: Just like any camp, but especially this one, fruit is born through physically living in community alongside one another while learning how to care for and serve one another each and every day. For that reason, you commit to being on campus all Summer with some exceptions on the weekend.  All food and housing is provided for the summer with exception of weekends (when there is usually leftovers)

Working: You are fully committed to Marannook for the summer.  Please do not arrange outside jobs.

Leaving the Camp: We do realize that you may have family or friend commitments you have made prior to camp (such as weddings).  Based on availability of fellow counselors, we ask that those dates be provided and planned for ahead of time.

Food: We will be providing all food for the summer with the exception of a few weekends.  Most weekends there are leftovers you can eat and there will be some weekends you will have the opportunity to go off campus to eat. 

Transportation: Summer Staff is responsible for getting to Marannook in LaFayette, AL.  However, if transportation is a burden then we will work to find a way for you to be able to get to Marannook.  


Summer Staff as a whole is provided by the generosity of others who desire to see college students grow in the Lord and serve kids, so there is no cost. You will also be paid for the summer.  All payments will be discussed during the interview process.
