Required Forms

MWC is blessed to have raised up a staff and retain most staff members from previous years. Priority will be given to those serving with Safe Haven Sustainable Farms and Growing in Torah and/or those who have displayed leadership in Safe Haven Sustainable Farm events such as Sukkot and other events.  

All staffers are asked to pay for their expenses. Safe Haven Sustainable Farms (parent ministry of MWC and GIT) is a non-profit ministry. Your help in fundraising is welcomed. All staffers are required to follow all rules that campers follow and enforce them.  Additionally, all staff MUST be willing to arrive no later than Sunday morning, July 21st, and be able to stay the entire week of camp. Ideally, we will meet at Camp Oakhurst on July 21st around 12 PM to pray, mingle, plan, etc.  We can make arrangements for you to come for the weekend and stay with us or with families in our fellowship, depending on space availability.  

If you are living with your parents, we believe you should have their support in your desire to serve at Messiah West Coast. This being said, we feel it is important that the parents of CIT applicants give their blessing to their children in being a part of camp, and therefore require the signature of a parent.

I understand what the program requires, including being at Camp Oakhurst BEFORE camp commences, and am interested in applying for a staff position with Messiah West Coast.

Furthermore, I agree to not discuss divisive matters that do not pertain to salvation. For example, food can become an issue. If we eat Biblically-clean food, this is what matters, but if one prefers only to eat vegetables, it should not be forced upon others. Likewise, we will not argue over the Name of our Elohim or Messiah, and will welcome Yahweh, Yahovah, Yah, Yeshua, Yashua, etc. and we will not engage in debates on the calendar and will leave this subject up to the camper, their family and fellowship. Our focus will be on loving YHWH and each other.
