Come to Summer Camp

Come to Camp Dynamite as a volunteer staff member for a week this summer!

This short-term missions trip is an awesome opportunity to make an eternal impact on the life of a child or young person.


As a counselor, you will spend one week overnight with a small group of kids who need you. You will be their mentor, coach, advisor, and mom or dad from the moment you meet them on Sunday afternoon until the moment you return them to their parents on Friday evening. Your main purpose will be to see each camper make a decision to follow Jesus Christ.

In addition to counselors, there are also opportunities available for assistants, nurses, drivers, teachers, videographers, junior counselors, and even volunteers to help with the preparations in DC prior to camp. 

What Do We Do at Camp?


Counselors and campers develop new friendships while enjoying various activities at Camp Dynamite, including:


  • Exciting Bible classes and chapels

  • Creative and performing arts

  • Swimming, basketball, and other sports

  • Interactive life skills lessons

  • Arts and crafts

  • Eating!

  • Having lots of fun!



Where Do We Stay?

Camp Dynamite is conducted at Potomac Park Retreat and Conference Center in Falling Waters, WV, only 75 minutes from Washington DC. You will stay in an air-conditioned dormitory-style or motel-type room with your campers.


On departure Sunday, staff and campers meet at Anacostia Gospel Chapel (1217 Alabama Ave., SE, Washington DC 20032) in the afternoon and travel together in vans or buses to West Virginia. We return to the same location on Friday evening.

When Is Camp this Year?

  • July 7-12, 2019: Children’s Camp (ages 7-10)

  • August 4-9, 2019: Youth Camp (ages 11-16)


Do I Need to Raise Money?

While Camp Dynamite is certainly a short-term mission trip, you do not need to raise funds to participate. In fact, you will receive a stipend for your week of service. All we ask is that you keep the funding in prayer, as we depend on God to provide through donors for our expenses.

Is There a Maximum Age to Being on Staff?

There is no maximum age! All that you need is energy to keep up with the campers.
